I have incountered this with both Att and Comcast. They are forigners
who can't speak or undrstand englih well. I told them that I am blind so I
can't tell you if their are lights on or what color they are. With att's
connect tech they would not even stay on the phone with me. I told them
that if you don't then you can't ask me anything as I could not read the
chat window. They even said that after I told them that I was blind that
I wanted to end the session that I should just click on the red x. How do
they think that I will know whear the red x is if I can't see? Why is it
hard to understand what blind is. I guess I will have to just spell it out
for them. I am totally blind that means that I can't see anything not even
light or any shadows. If they can't comprehend that then they have no
business working in tech support.

Yes indeed. I do find it almost ridiculous that, for example my

things that they screw up, rather than un screwing them up, if that is
a word, but also continue to put me through to the people who cannot
function without knowing what a light is doing on a router, even
though I'm deep inside the control panel of said router and can read
them any parameter they wish to know about.
There should just be a one line addition to their script. If this
person is blind, push to level 2 or whatever its called. these people
do exist, but often the person at the start is unaware of what
blindness means or is just thick. I'm sorry but that is what I feel.
Rocket science it is not.

In this post, I detail an experience talking to Microsoft's
disability answer desk and talk about the importance of using
disability language when interacting with a disabled customer,
especially if you are operating disability support. Feel free to
