Someone recently claimed in an email exchange that "the offline community" feels marginalised.
I'll imagine for now that she was referring to disabled or very poor people not just lazy and or irrationally frightened people who hide when you show them windows explorer.
I consider the idea of a spoken website with options and audio hyperlinks would work to permit the blind or physically disabled to participate here, and speech to text to permit them to respond in threads. Obviously this is an expensive project. If anyone has any ideas or funding to make this board accessible to the disabled, please say so. Until then, movements to include the disabled minority are financially prohibitive. Once funding to provide this is made possible, I'll happily invest the time to implement it.
Clearly money should be found for anyone anywhere who doesnt have access to at least a functional second hand PC in this age of online communications. To be offline in this era is a disability in itself.
How anyone can imagine theyre fully informed without access to online media is beyond me. Its the only way to get away from the mainstream thought control the media imposes on us. Without being online, you can't experience a rich, global, human culture. Just the western insular indoctrination.
