interesting side effect of my own adaptive tech with the adaptive tech I am currently using to test websites:

For myself, I am using Dragon NaturallySpeaking. Also for myself, I have the "hey Siri" functionality enabled on my phone. (Hey, Apple, thank you so much for that functionality – it is really making a major difference in my life.) And I'm currently testing a website with the screen reader NVDA.

End result, sometimes me, my computer, and my telephone get into some really unexpected conversations.

You are such a tease! I want to know the content of these unexpected conversations!

I'm hoping that Dragon gets jealous of all the attention Siri's getting, while NVDA is pleasing its own geek self in the corner.

And Dragon's making transcripts?

*whoop* And given Siri's habit of backtalk (which, seriously, whoever programmed her is dead on with making her feel like a real person just enough to anthropomorphize, not enough to be annoying) I bet it gets really fun sometimes...
