#47 One step at a time
Recovering and temporary disabilities
A somehow unexpected turn of events made me dictate this letter to you. A few days ago I had a small mole removed from my breast; nothing worrisome at the time of the first examination, but a stressful experience nonetheless.
Straining activities like typing on the keyboard make me tired and sore, which is what I must avoid to recover well. That makes me temporary disabled, and it can happen to anyone. Luckily, assistive technology are widely available, so I am learning to use macOS’s integrated Voice Control. Having always took keyboard/mouse/trackpad navigation for granted, there is a learning curve but I’m finding it straightforward so far.
Some time has passed until I published the latest Design, Digested, and forgot to tell you: why everything looks the same, the limits of contrast checkers, accessibility for vestibular disorders and more.
