How A Blind Person Reads Comments on Instagram


What do you say, everybody! Today we’re going to talk about Instagram. (music transition) I love Instagram. I do. It’s fun, right. I take pictures. You know, I post it on Instagram and Twitter and Facebook and everywhere. And then you want to know what happens next. How do you read the comments and stuff? Well, I’ll tell you what. I’ll show you. So let’s do an Instagram then. I’ll just take one and we’ll watch and see what happens and see how we read the comments. (iPhone) Instagram.
(music starts) (iPhone) Open camera button. (iPhone) Shutter button.
(shutter sfx) (Tommy) And there’s our photo.
(iPhone) Welcome back old friend. We’ll put the phone back down here. We’ll just sit and wait. No, I’m not going to eat the cupcake. (music transition) (iPhone) 8:41. One notification. (Tommy) Ooh, a couple notifications about our picture. Let’s see what’s happened. (iPhone) Twitter. Twitter. Instagram. Instagram. (iPhone) Valsocal said, Squiggly goodness. (Tommy) Squiggly goodness. See? You gotta like that. (iPhone) Twitter. @thinggtwoo favorited. Welcome back old friend. (Tommy) See, somebody just favorited that on Twitter. Let’s just see if there’s anything else on Instagram. (iPhone) 267 likes.
(Tommy) Ooohh. (iPhone) Roberto C underscore 73. The chocolate cupcakes and the Twinkies are my thing. Graceland 226. My favorite hostess snack. icanhazpuppie. Underscore at. (Tommy) What does that mean? At? I don’t know. Sometimes the emoticons work great because there are some that describe, you know, it’s like — smiling with mouth open wide, or red heart, or clenching fist. Or all these different things that they have. They’re great. But that one didn’t work. You know, sometimes like D or X. Those ones don’t really work for me. But pretty cool, right? That’s how it works. So I hear everything you write. All of it. Every single word. I love it. Thank you so much. Now can I eat the cupcake? (music/credits) So, Ben’s going to send something with a couple emoticons in it. He’s going to try this and we’ll see how it works. (iPhone) BenJChurchill. Here are some emoticons. Smiley. Frown. Vertical line. (Tommy) See, so two out of three. Smiley, Frown. Vertical line I’m not quite sure, but hey. Vertical line right back to you, buddy! (laughs)

  1. wow I was wondering about the smiley face thing, because my friend is blind, and she has kinda the same phone program thing as you, and I type smiley faces all the time and I wondered if she "saw" them or not.

  2. Hey, Tommy! Your videos are really fun and heartwarming.
    Also, I was thinking, since YouTube is mostly visual media, do you know the TED talks channel? Or maybe Zefranknfriends channel? I love just opening up a video from either of those and listening to it while drawing or something.
    Anyways, I love your videos, keep it up! 🙂

  3. Hey, here's a question for you. How do capchas work with your phone? Does Siri just read them out loud, then you type them back in, or what? Just in case you don't know what I mean, it's those annoying things where you have to type in some random letters and numbers after doing something like commenting on here a lot, or other things like that, in order to prove you're not a bot. I've never seen anybody ask this before, so I was just curious.

  4. That's a good one. Actually, most of the biggest websites use a button with a speaker icon over it which "read" the captcha for you. But some websites don't. For this case, I'd like to know too !

  6. Someone really needs to get on improving the natural speech patterns for text-to-speech applications. Never realized how important it was to some people.

  7. The real question is: how can he take such FANTASTIC photos? Seriously, I know many sighted people who take way worse photos than he does.

  8. You could search online to find a list of common emoticons and their meanings, and then when you hear that same character sequence read out in a comment then you will understand what it means.
