Happy Star Wars Day!

If you don’t know what that title means, it’s because of the date – May the 4th be with you.  🙂

There are a few things I wanted to mention in this post. Firstly, I wanted to note that I’ve been writing this blog for a few months now, and therefore take the opportunity to say thank you to those who have been reading, commenting, liking and following this collection of randomness so far. It’s my first foray into blogging, and I’m not trying to do anything fancy or change the world with it. I mainly just felt inspired to share some of my experiences, thoughts, favourite things, etc, having enjoyed the blogs and Youtube videos of various others. If it interests and entertains people, then that’s awesome. I have been jotting down ideas for various posts I could do here, meaning there’s potential for me to keep wittering on for some time yet!

I’ve also been very flattered to get a mention in two other blogs in the space of a week recently – Life of a Blind Girl and Luke Sam Sowden. Thank you so much to Holly and Luke for including me in their lists of recommended bloggers, that’s really very kind of you! 🙂

Audio Description & DVD Navigation

I’ve just received, and have happily started watching, Doctor Who Series 9 on Blu-ray. I’m drafting a separate review post of that as I go along, but coming from a visually impaired person’s perspective, I’m very pleased to see they’re continuing with audio navigation and audio description on the discs. Sherlock gets the same treatment as well.

It’s not a feature I personally need to use, but I do have friends who use it. And it’s understandably frustrating that such audio assistance isn’t more widespread.
