He generally doesn’t have a clue anyway, which is why I don’t listen to it.

I find this kind of thing really annoying. Yesterday I was listening to the
RNIB Tech Talk programme. The first item was someone talking about the Calibre
download app from Calibre itself. the more the guy spoke, the more my blood
boiled. He just didn't seem to have a clue. Have a listen and see if you agree.
Yes, it's a slightly different issue, but it is an illustration of the problem
which seems to rear its head more often than it should: the problem of a
solution for blind people which hasn't been properly thought through.

I know this is not what is hot at the moment but someone put on the bargain
store yesterday a clock that was sold by cobolt systems that had an indoor
temperature on it. the thing that surprised me was that you had to get sighted
assistance to set it up as it didn’t speak the time and date when being set up.
what is the point of this. I accept that most people have a bit of sight
these days but a company that is supposed to sell products for the visually
impaired ought to know better. I know it’s not much but it just makes my blood
boil. if people like cobolt can’t get it right then how are others supposed
to. sorry for the rant. Janet
