@rey My biggest issue with the proliferation of video-that-should-be-text-files is that text files are way, way easier to search the content of and skip past the "hi guys how are you?" to the one thing I needed to know (which the video probably glossed over)
@djenderesensjuelist @rey that’s fair, for instructional and tutorial stuff. But the problem for me is that I need searchable text and YouTube transcripts only do so much (especially when they’re auto generated).
Also I have trouble staying focused on most videos, and I’m usually looking for one specific thing that tends to get buried or elided.
FWIW I have severe RSI-related pain but find that pressing the space bar to scroll down isn’t very strenuous.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
