There's something I should admit. I've been meaning to for a long time, but it's not something that one admits in polite, educated company, you know?

I can't read.

There, I've said it. I mean, what does one follow up an announcement like that with? I know, I know, there are classes that can help, admitting you have a problem is the first step, and all that. Maybe with this out in the open I can finally get somewhere with it.

Thanks for listening today.

I'd leave a comment to help but uhhhh you can't read it.

SO:

I appreciate the thought, but I have no idea what you're saying. But it makes me feel good to know people are responding!

Thank you! I find your icon quite attractive myself.

You do write awfully well. That's a good, solid first step towards learning how to read.

I swear, people don't understand how difficult it is to learn to write well when you can't read. It's like they just don't understand the relationship between the two.

Here's hoping this comment is, in fact, relevant to yours! (Another thing no one ever seems to understand the difficulty of, until you mention it. They're all so blind to how easy they have it.)

Ummmm... Must be a stone bitch writing when you can't read what's on the paper. *g*

That too! Luckily I touchtype.

*just dies laughing*

I can't read either. My robot cat translates everything for me and reads it aloud. She sounds like Tim Curry.

This is the best one of these I have seen all day.

Seriously.

With your hell-cat post, I am seriously blown away by the compliment.

Or, at least, I would be if I could read it. As it is, I'll just have to savor the idea instead. *grin*

Thank you!

Ah. You can "read" the internet telepathically! Cool!

Actually, thinking about it, I don't think I envy you that.

XD

Aie that is a truly terrifying thought. I think I need to go scrub my frontal lobes just letting that thought get anywhere near my brain...

(See my response to Ferrett below...)

I'm sure I would laugh at that extensively if I could only find someone to read it to me.

Or perhaps some device that could read web pages for me! I wonder if anyone has invented such a thing. Clearly I should invent one and make millions from all of those like me who struggle in silence.

If someone reads this to you I hope they tell you what I wrote. There is something out there that reads pages for you. You see I am blind and some software called JAWS it is used to read web pages out loud to people who are blind.

Re: A LJ friend of an LJ friend

Just for the record, I've actually done some amount of web accessibility work, specifically in the area of accessibility for the blind. So I have experience with such things.

But I was being particularly dry here. *grin*
