Re: screen shade


Christopher-Mark Gilland <clgilland07@...>
 

Excuse me, but, when did I ever say I needed this before being productive? For the record, I hardly ever use screen shade. So with all due respect, don't put proverbial words in my mouth which I never said. I was trying to make a point that some people, even those only with light preception, might have sensitive eyes.
 
For example. I have some usable vision, yes, and definitely can see enough to tell my screen is lit up. NO, not enough to read what's on it, but definitely enough to tell when things are popping up on the screen. I have a rare eye condition called Aneridia though. Go Google it, if you're so inclined. Part of this disorder is that your puples are 100% diolated 24/7, so therefore, obviously, more light gets in than usual for a sighted person, and therefore light can really really hurt my eyes at times. So therefore, when I'm having a bad day, where is the case, and my eyes are hurting, I'll turn on the screen shade. It's not a matter of me thinking I need it since I'm blind, again, I never said that. It's neither that I necessarily need it per sé, but sometimes, the screen does hurt my eyes from its radiating light. So this is a way, I can blank out the screen to a solid black, or well, more like a really dark gray, but whatever, point is, it definitely knocks a lot of that brightness off the thing, therefore making it more easy on my eyes.
 
This isn't a privacy thing, and honestly I have no earthly inkling of an idea what gave you that impression, or that I thought because I was blind, I had to have it or I'd not be productive. I'm sorry, but until you live in someone's shoes like this, it probably might be slightly hard to relate to, but trust me, it really does help.
 
If I am misunderstanding the tone or meaning of your message, then I profusely apologize, but this is at least how it is coming off to me when reading it. I open your clarification if I'm misunderstanding.

if you can see what is the point?
that is real sad you think you need this feature, before you can be productive as a blind person?

I totally agree! It's not just a privacy thing. What about those people who the monitor hurts their eyes? Again, yeah, just turn the monitor off, I get it, but like I said earlier, a lot of these monitors you hit a keystroke and yeah, it turns it off, but only until your next keypress, which kind of defeats the purpose in my opinion, therefore, a screenshade would be in order.

Josh your argument is so invalid. Just because I want privacy does not
mean I must be up to something bad hell I just want to be able to have
my screen blank when I need it to be. I wouldn't dream of wanting to
get in the way of someone elses privacy unless I had a major reason.
