I’m extremely interested in the M5 phone, as I’m feeling a little disenfranchised by other smart phone manufacturers, and the smart tech industry at large.
Add to that that me and my wife help out at a workshop teaching blind and visually impaired people how to use smart technology, and it is becoming apparent that there is a cross section of users for whom smart technology is more of a hindrance than a help, and it all adds up to me wanting to try something new.
As I myself am blind, and the people we work with are all blind or visually impaired, I am looking into other solutions that might be better (or at least another choice) for everyone.
It has been my dream for a while to create my own mobile phone, one with buttons, and no smarts whatsoever, but it’s becoming abundantly clear how difficult that is.
So here I am at the M5, wondering how Orca - which I’m pretty sure doesn’t support touch screens - works in this context.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Are there any blind / VI folks using the M5 phone?
Normally I’d just buy one and try it, but it’s quite a lot of money to shell out for something which might not work now or ever.
Not really sure what I’m asking specifically, just throwing it out there so the community knows there’s interest from at least one blind user who’s more than happy to help out in whatever way he can!
Cheers, and hope you’re all having a lovely day.
