So, because I do care about making the world around me slightly more accessible, and because this is the best solution we've found so far, I'll have to install Google Chrome and and reconcile myself to everything I say being sent to Google, which I've so far attempted to avoid.
This is what most proponents of #Privacy miss, as well as most people promoting #OpenSource, #FreeSoftware, #FOSS, #FLOSS, -- whatever the hecking heck you want it called.
Privacy and accessibility rarely mix. Open source and accessibility rarely mix.
That's why my friends who do bother to mess around with #Linux and #Orca post so many rants about most desktop environments not being accessible. That's why #Apple gets constant praise for #VoiceOver, where as all the solutions on #Android lag behind.
I wish I could just ... go back to not caring.
I suggested that we should have #LiveCaptions on the stream I'm on, Sword and Quill. The solution we arrived on was WebCaptioner.com, since there's multiple people on the stream and WebCaptioner would separate them. So far so good.
But that service uses Web Speech API. And only #Google #Chrome has that API. Even other Chromium browsers, like #Brave, do not, as seen in this issue:
Basically, there's two reasons why Brave doesn't have this. 1. Because they would have to pay for the right to use that API, and it is quite expensive. And 2. Because what this API does is send the audio to GOOGLE'S SERVERS where a transcript is created.

@erion I totally see what you mean. Though in this case there are actually 2 prrizes, one awarded by the judges, and a smaller audience prize which is what this is counting toward. The whole likes thing makes a bit more sense in that context
Yo, @guilevi2000 needs our help in getting as many likes as he can under this video to win a contest. Also he's just an exceptional player and really awesome friend. RT's/boosts appreciated! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33G3VwHrnLE
Since it's one of those really non-specific issues that seems to be ungoogleable, anyone have ideas what could be the problem? I would have thought newer office would be quicker thanks to UIA and all that. It's a 2-year old Win 10 computer.
Just read this interesting article essentially talking about how the audio industry, specifically podcasting, should stop relying on ProTools so much at least in context of looking for new talent because it's complicated, overpriced and alternatives exist. https://www.theverge.com/2021/1/22/22242606/pro-tools-proficiency-podcasting-diversity-gatekeeping
And here I thought it was just decoration. I always fidget with those things while drinking.

One really positive change though is that there is now a new section of settings for apps that use direct touch.. Once you turn it on from the rotor the option will just stay on unless you manually remove it from the new setting.
Meh. In my opinion this feature/loophole is really awesome for blind users. Many apps that were specifically blocked are far more pleasant to use than their desktop or web counterparts.
