What are these lists? I've been looking for a general blindness list for a while

JFW, its functionality with programs etc is acceptable. If it doesn't have
to do with JFW, it doesn't belong on the list. This includes, but isn't
limited to, talk of other screen readers such as Window Eyes.

I would also add, as an admonition, that advising anyone to simply hit the
Delete key shows disrespect for fellow list members.
There are other lists on which this material *would be appropriate. Many of
us subscribe to such lists and don't appreciate the cross-posting when said
posting is outside the purview of a given list.

And now, I wish you all well.
Be safe

Political opinions have no place here. Just my two cents. Let's stick to the
reason for this list, and keep our political opinions to ourselves or at
least on lists besides this one.

If you are receiving Social Security for a Disability, you may want to read
