imo technology that speaks to you is for people who have a god complex or something. i don't need my phone to pretend to be my servant, thanks
@pizza it's true, everyone who uses a screen reader is too fucking powerful
@artemis screen readers are of course an awesome speaking technology, I should have been more specific that it's the virtual assistant fad that i hate
@pizza I stand by what I said tho, ppl who use screen readers are actual gods
@pizza and smart home shit is cursed tbh
@pizza it's also hella creepy. I don't want to talk to my phone and I sure as fuck don't want my phone to talk back
@CornishRepublicanArmy It's also a privacy thing for me! I don't want the people in my immediate vicinity to know what music i'm listening to, who I'm calling or whatever, plus there is now a recording of my voice somewhere in the ether, awesome
