Now I know why I don't like chat rooms... Toff fast paced, and, my bad vision doesn't catch everything.
I have yet, another person angry at me because he says I'm one traqcked, and, ignore him.
It's more like I can't see that he is typing a response half the time because of my poor vision. I think I'm totally quitting chat rooms. I'm the square peg in the round hole.

I have been "Mr. In-Between" all my life. There is an old Burl Ives song from 1960 or so by that same name. A square peg in a round hole is another way to say it. As I get older, I have less sympathy for those who think that I am strange.

I do not like chat rooms bc 90% of them are filled with about 90% bots. Yahoo rooms are the worst for bots,even though they make you enter a captcha to prove you are "human" and have a strict no bot policy.

Bill, does the other chatter know about your vision? Sometimes even if the subject has been broached, some folks need reminding. Repeatedly. Smile

I don't use chat rooms, Bill. I wonder if a text reader would help or work? Something like "TextAloud." ??

I meant an audio program that converts the text to sound so you can hear it, rather than read it.

Depending on what operating system you use, you may already have a text reading program? The one most people seem to like on my writer's forum is a paid version of "textaloud." www.nextup.com/

This may be an off-the-wall idea, but how about hooking your computer up to a tv set. I have my computer in AZ hooked up to our 55" flat panel. The words on TRF are about 6 inches high with that setup. Most modern tv sets have an HDMI connection for a computer.

I don't have, nor, do I want a flat screen tv.
As said, I have a zoom program.
Right now, I'm more concerned that it took 12 tries to get the computer running, and, then, it informed me that one operating program has failed.

The programs that Microsoft have work quite well for OS systems, one is called Narrator and the other is Windows speech recognition. Both are free.

Look in the help menu under the Use Ease of Access Center to adjust settings and programs that can help make your PC easier to see, hear, and use.for the handicapped. You can change any display to show big letters and black and white screens, short cuts on the keyboard to do specific tasks.
