AllHarlowsEve10 karma

When I moved to my apartment years ago, I got cable and a new remote that I couldn't figure out. The top had 5 buttons that were identical and I had no idea which ones were which, since one was obviously the power button but I didn't know if it was the left, right, or one of the middle ones.

A kind of aggressive Italian dude who seemed to have a weak grasp of the english language helped me. He didn't know the word for middle and his other words were... jumbled at best, but we made it work lol.

I know, back when it was just starting to get rolling, that BME was very slow to connect, I remember literally setting my phone down for half an hour and not getting connected back then. I use different apps now, like BeSpecular I think that let me just take a picture and ask for a specific answer than dealing with essentially a video call with strangers.

My favorite are ones that are like, "type the word that doesn't fit. Shoes, shirt, potato."

It makes screen readers mispronounce things if your spelling is too incorrect, as well as blind people using braille displays just being able to read it.
