Around the Web Wednesday

  • Twitter as an accessibility tool? That's what Catharine McNally discusses in this interesting article from Keen Guides. If the event you're at doesn't have sufficient captioning or interpreting services, you may be able to turn to Twitter, to see live updated feeds and information about the event. Catharine likens it to turning to a friend in a crowded cafeteria for the scoop on what's being discussed. Twitter can't and shouldn't replace other accessibility options at live events, but it can definitely help.
  • Did you know Helen Keller has her own page on Facebook? Become a fan here. I wonder how Helen would have used social media such as this if it was around during her lifetime.
  • Your funny video for Wednesday: reverse psychology is universal, as demonstrated in this great (subtitled/translated) video.
