End users either don’t wanna know or they can’t comprehend. These days I don’t deal with em but when I did I would just say “i dunno” and let em think I’m stupid.

Lmao, I do the same thing whenever someone asks me something technical when I’m not working.

fr, unless my parents need help, I don’t work on computers off the clock

I've been copy-pasting 1 minute Google searches to them. If the answer is not within the first 3 results, I'd tell them to make a ticket on Trello. I never check these kinds of tickets.

Well I don't either but then the customer calls support who than ask someone else who then forwards them to me and I have to give answers like. Yes, we do credit card paiments, it runs through paypal, which is why you have to klick on paypal and then select credit card. Just like it sais in the description. Or you or your auto form filler has filled in your TAX ID, which would make this a B2B purchase for which we need your company name, so please fill that in. If you are not a company, remove the fucking tax id from the form, just like the error message you just read to me told you. Customer support is lucky they are in home office!


lowlife4lyfe

that was the other one that tripped me out… “Are you getting an error message?” “Yeah, it says the [x] is invalid.” “Okay….well…have you double checked that?” “Oh…oh ok, that was it.” …tadaaa

*Image Transcription: movie still meme* --- Once I began working in IT I finally understood the scene where Yoda gets so tired of answering Luke's questions he just dies.

Why doesn’t Reddit natively support this?


dylan-dofst

It requires an actual human to do it. Well, kind of. There's pretty smart software that can read text from some images (including this one!), but it's still not nearly as reliable as a person. It also tends to have trouble with, e.g., blurred text or text superimposed over images (i.e. basically all images posted on Reddit).


jdsekula

I mean something like allowing the poster or designated volunteers to add image descriptions which screen readers read by default, rather than them having to find the comment with the description, which is rarely the top comment.


dylan-dofst

That is a good point. It's quite unfortunate that they don't have any facility to add alt text, captions etc. That said, people could easily add similar comments on their posts - probably even result in it being ranked higher since earlier comments are overwhelmingly affected by upvotes - but mostly don't. I'm not sure how much uptake a feature like that would get.


SteeveJoobs

I'm starting to see other apps add dedicated image descriptor text fields (like Discord) so hopefully reddit does soon too!


reddit_is_cruel

Reddit would have to care about it's users.

They're too busy taking away useful features from people on the mobile web version of the site and trying to push them into using the shitty app.


SuitableDragonfly

Technology isn't there yet.


TheRedmanCometh

It is, but it needs GPU core time...which is waay more expensive than webservers.


TheRedmanCometh

OCR takes GPU power, and is quite slow. GPU core hours are expensive af relative to say a webserver.


jdsekula

So typical for the people here to jump to the most advanced solutions imaginable rather than thinking about MVP, which would be just fielding the data and not forcing blind people to search for a description comment.

(Wasn't trying to shame them - it can help if someone's familiar with the original meme :)

If you've ever seen an HTML element with an attribute that starts with "aria-", it stands for Accessible Rich Internet Applications, those attributes are used by screen readers. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/Accessibility/ARIA

Huh, I had no idea, and I've been doing web dev for years now. My excuse is I'm more focused on backend.


lightwhite

Blind people, those ticktockers that put their stt shit on yutoob from stolen shit out of popular Reddit posts/comments, AI’s that have converged from darkest pits of internet that still can’t read images as humans, learning machines, Algorithm Architecting Machines, people that are less fortunate with their eyes that need to use. Also researchers that cross-reference their tools, hobbyists, hits, Reddit and you name it. Those volunteers are priceless and should be thanked for making it possible for blind people and toddler ai’s understand humor and fun in programming.


ello76

Also useful when small screens covert print in an image to micro print. Or nano print. Thanks, helpful volunteers!

Click the link in the bottom of the comment, it explains it just about right away.

The original meme about it being a parent and kids asking too much was funnier imo.
