Also, this request for chrome orca support has been standing since 2009. https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=24585
@sydneyfalk Yeah, I do like it!
It just gives me sort of an underlying uneasiness. Like, usually when there's an interface that's been used a lot others run into situations where they need tighter control for a particular thing. And the interface is changed later to be a little more complicated, or an extra version of a function is added or something.
So when I don't see much evidence of that, it makes me nervous no one's touched it.
Also I went into an old test game I had, to take a look at what interfacing with it is like on the developer side. In C it's actually really clean and straightforward code? The system there is called "speech dispatcher". I got it spouting french and english on key presses pretty quickly.
I didn't spot anything important missing, but it did seem kind of basic.
Some earlier @shel posts got me wondering what the screen reader situation is on linux mint (my desktop OS day-to-day).
Orca, uh, works? The speech synthesis sounds REALLY bad, like, microsoft sam-level low bitrate samples with lots of popping artifacts. Chrome doesn't support it, so you have to get a separate chrome extension screen reader or use firefox.
Honestly, I preface sentences with "honestly" even when there wasn't an underlying assumption that I might be joking.
Only pet glowing dogs you do trust.
Could someone explain to me why Getty Images has such an extensive collection of stock footage of baboons in a red-walled conference room doing office-related shenanigans? http://www.gettyimages.com/videos/baboon?phrase=baboon&excludenudity=true&sort=best#license
