Braille Bank Statements!

I rang up my local bank on the off chance that they would have my bank statements etc in braille. They do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will now get any bank information in braille!!!!!!!

I was expecting alot of problems with this, but they didn’t ask any questions. They just needed me to confirm my details.

Yay!!!


As Part Of The Braille Bicentenary….

A couple of weeks ago, I was asked by
The RNIB
if I would do an article on braile, for a website for young people called
Need 2 Know
I did, and the article’s up. I know that some of the information might sound a bit bad, but it’s designed for young people. My answers are in the quotes. I thought they were also going to put an audio interview that I had to do for them up as well, but they didn’t. Anyway,
Here’s The Article

I look forward to other opportunities regarding Braille.

Thanks, Lewis. Here’s hoping that it lasts for another 200 years!! I am so glad you invented Braille!!


Why…..

I went yesterday to get money from the bank. Well there’s a particular cash point that has an earphone jack. I thought “Yay, an accessible cash machine!!”

When I got there to try it out, I put the earphones in, pushed a button that seemed to turn the audio on, and guess what? Nothing!!!!!!!!!! I’m so disapointed. Why would you have that on a cash point, if there is no need for it?????? Grrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also, tonight in maths, we started the last module of our course. It’s Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo visual!!!!!!!!!!!!! My mentor was trying so hard to explain it, but I think even he had trouble. I’m going to email him a copy of the book, so that the diagrams can be raised up. Hope this works!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s just so hard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Grrr!!

I was going through some coursework corrections yesterday, and my english teacher has said that I should indent my paragraphs!! Wha?????????????????????????? Where the fuck did this come from? Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!

My school didn’t give me all the information about this That’s probably why I failed the second part of that
Word Processing Exam
http://thebig-t.blogspot.com/2008/04/second-part-of-that-word-processing-exam.html
Why had I not been told about this? The fucking bastards!!!!!!!!

I wonder how much more information I didn’t get because of my blindness. It just pisses me off!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fucking stupid school anyway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ha!!! That helped. On a slightly different note, when i’m in forms mode with JAWS, I can’t go back to the previous link, or edit box when i press shift and tab. Nothing happens. This used to work. If i leave my laptop for like a couple of minutes, and am not doing anything, JAWS either shuts itself down, or becomes non responsive. I uninstalled it again, and it’s still doing it. Also, it doesn’t seem to be as responsive when i’m posting in here, right now, it’s taking a milly seconds lag on the typing. Maybe i’ve gotten slower or something.
