I just printed 40 of them and delivered them to my DME. They are the largest DME in the metro area (about 1 million), and have hundreds of clients. The respiratory therapist was impressed and, while I watched, placed them in a stack on the table in his consultation room. He is very in favor of patient empowerment and tries to help people get the best out of their therapy. I am lucky to have them for a DME, and to have a sleep doctor who also encourages me to figure things out for myself.
I have gotten a copy of each flyer and they read great with my screen reader. Thank you SuperSleeper.
I do have a question, what is bump2? It reads back to me as an image but the words within that image is bump2, but I just wonder what it meant? Is it something like "GREAT JOB"? I saw a couple of those within this thread and I was just curious, not tryin' to be a pain in the A** and I hope this makes since, as describing these types of things can be difficult for me.
The bump your screen reader is literally reading is really the tag name for a small smiley face holding a sign that says bump.
Smiley faces are a little graphic picture used to imply laughter but each one has a different name and meaning like grinning or scratching-head to depict the writers mood in a posting.
The bump you heard is from someone adding the aforementioned smiley face to an older post that was further down the list of messages and he wanted to bump it back to the top of the messages so more users will see it if they're only reading the newest messages on the first page of the Main Apnea Board Forum.
In this case SuperSleeper wanted the message to appear as one of the top messages since they're sorted by newest messages first.
People bump messages in forums all the time, especially if they posted a question and nobody replied in a timely fashion.
Does this actually make any sense now?
Any user can be reading a message that might be 4 years old and if they post a reply to it then that also bumps the message back to the top of the list of forum messages just like one that was written only a minute ago.
Sorry if this is rambling but I tried to envision it in my mind as to how it would sound to you since you can't see actually see what these graphics look like.
The majority of the smiley characters will be seen by your screen reader as : some kind of emotion graphics's name followed by another :
Most of them get inserted at the very end of a message, or, occasionally at the beginning but they can literally be inserted anywhere in a message.
Does this help you understand them now?
