Holy Glam! Check out this Jeopardy question from last night. Unbelievably no one knew the answer! The category was band names. I could have totally rocked that one!

WOW!
That's really cool not in my wildest dreams would I have ever thought that would be a question on Jeopardy.

Very cool.

Tough question for those kinds of folks perhaps.

Please forgive my asking, but what was the question? for those of you who are saying, "bob, what are you, blind?" the answer is yes.

Bob: who are pretty boy floyd. How could you not know that?

Um, Fletch, perhaps I didn't make myself clear. After reading the post, I was left wondering what the question was to begin with. at that point, I assumed that the question must be shown in a graphic or something which, because I am blind, I can't read. so, I asked to know what the question was, not because I didn't know the answer, but because I didn't know what the question itself was.

How can you read the post if you're blind?

Bob,
I'm not trying to be rude at all but how were you responding in the first place. I'm assuming someone typed in your response for you(I don't know?) but wouldn't they have told you what you were responding to. The graphic is all words just like the stuff Allyson typed in. It's just a picture of the words that were on the TV screen. If you were able to know what Allyson typed how come could you not understand the words in the blue background. Both are in english,again I don't mean to offend you it just doesn't make any sense to me at all.

Fletch - Bob has a system where his computer reads the text out loud to him.

Bob - I'm sorry. I try not to make too many posts with just images as the point and I've done that to you twice this week (the other on the Sweden Rock poster).

Here's the Jeopardy text:

"I'd go to Mars with Sixx of my pals to Neil before 80's rock gods like them, right Tommy Boy?"

Bob,
My bad.
All apologies.
Rock on!
October 8, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJakki Steal
Yup

Thanks Allyson. For those of you who asked, I have a screen reading program on my computer that converts text to synthetic speech output. It can read text just fine, but it does not have the ability to decipher text contained within a picture. As for who types my comments, I do. I was born blind, and learned how to type when I was about seven years old. I can type faster, and more accurately than a lot of sighted people I come in contact with.
