Re: Any list for blind Alesa and Google Home voice controlled devices


Fragmentation becomes pointless after a while and besides, truth be told, for many of these lists, be it Jaws, iOS or blindness related tech stuff, lots of us are on these same lists anyway.

That could be if there were not end-user mechanisms to control the flow of messages from a given group, but gives exquisite control over exactly what messages you receive:  Controlling the Messages You Receive via E-Mail from

Most of the groups I participate on with regard to anything are not actively moderated.  There are moderators (myself among them) that can and will step in if a situation calls for it and is called to our attention, but in general members post as they please because they abide by the community rules.

In any case, I really just wanted to point out the Blind Tech group, which is blessedly "general purpose" and has been around for a very long time now (it predates its existence on by quite a few years, if memory serves).  You also learn a lot that you didn't ever think about because you just happen to get topics that are very interesting that never would have entered your mind spontaneously.
