Some of you may know that I am visually and hearing impaird. I don't like to use my disabilities as obstacles or excuses for not being able to do things but I also realize that I do have limitations that require some extra help from others.

You've been posting a lot of videos lately. I honestly do not get much out of them and some of them are totally inaccessible to me.. What you can do to help me is type the basic ideas that are important information from the videos. That way people who can enjoy the videos can continue to do so and they will have some meaning for me as well.

Also when you are quoting someone who uses videos please don't quote the videos just the text. This will make scrolling easier and I as well as others can go right to your reply without having to scroll past several videos.

Thanks

brotha Rich could you make this a sticky? I am prolly not the only person here with accessibility issues. I am just in the position close enough to you to say something.

Thanks for the heads on Sister River...I appreciate you informing those of us who had no idea.

I will try and keep that in mind the next time I post a video

(guess i should'a used that line some time back when i asked, rather than "i don't do flash; please say something about the video?". although, i will acknowledge, and thank, those that did put up a title and/or a text link: thanks!)

Also if there is just a title expaining each youtube posted, please be assured that they can be enjoyed while doing chores, cause they are all basically audio narrations throughout.

If the video has subtitles, can you read those?

Are you able to watch videos at all? One I can post (if it hasn't already been posted) and you basically tell what it is about from the pictures themselves.

Sister Destee how have you been? It's been a while but I'm glad to be back. I see many changes so I'll browse around to get my feel of things again

Jambo! I deleted a post that was a duplication. Both were deleted!!! Can you find it and repost it for me? I put a lot of work into it!

Hi Brother shaka64 ... Welcome Home! :heart:
Destee, my Sister!! I am sending you greetings with love from a rainy and relentless overcast Michigan! But you continue to bring sunshine into my life and for that I am eternally grateful! I LOVE the new look and features in the community. I hope you're enjoying your best life. Love and peace...:heart:
