This ring lets blind people read non-Braille books
One of the problems with Braille is that it’s typically printed in specialist books aside from the copies created for sighted people, meaning that those with sight difficulties can’t borrow their friends’ books and need to seek out the bookstores and libraries that cater for them. In the past, we’ve seen projects such as Thailand’sMr. Light and Mr. Dark — which uses special typography to enable the blind and non-blind to read the same book. Now the FingerReader initiative from MIT provides visually impaired readers with a wearable ring that can scan written text and read it out loud. READ MORE…

Clint has given each Avenger a name in sign language.  Thor is the letter ‘T’ in the motion of a hammer.  Steve is a salute with an “R”. Hulk is an “H” over the bicep, but Bruce is the sign for doctor followed by the letter “B”.  Natasha is an “N” being shot from his other wrist like a widow bite. His own name is a “C” being drawn back like a bow.  Stark is an “S” taking flight, unless Barton is mad at him, then he fingerspells “A.S.” for Anthony Stark, but accidentally on purpose adds a second “S”. 

actually this is how giving names work in sign language! usually you sign the first letter of the persons name and a motion that summarises them as a person, or something that reminds you of them!

Fascinating… what would Bucky and Sam be, I wonder?

Bucky is a “B” taken up to the forehead like a salute (so far, like Steve)—but then when he touches his forehead, he switches to the “I love you” symbol. Natasha notices right away.  It takes months for anyone else to notice; and when it happens, it’s Tony, who misunderstands and thinks Clint means he loves Bucky.  Tony’s “A-S-S” becomes Clint’s default choice.
Sam, I have to think about.  I suspect someone else could come up with something fabulous…

i’m so upset

I just realized that the reason ghosts say Boo! is because it’s a latin verb

they’re literally saying ‘I alarm/I am alarming/I do alarm!!

I can’t

present active boōpresent infinitive boāreperfect active boāvīsupine boātum

Recte!

if it comes from the latin word, they’re actually saying “I’M YELLING!” which is even cuter

do they speak latin because it’s a dead language

LOOK. LOOK WHAT I HAVE ACQUIRED. My parents actually gave me the Yale Shakespeare set I had been coveting from the antique store and I’m going to faint. There are thirty volumes from 1919 to 1958, and they all have “Melba Martin” written in cursive in the flyleaf. Melba, I am starting with Coriolanus.
