Library Word of the Day

Friday, July 31, 2015

Euphemism [yoo-fuh-miz-uh m]

Noun: That figure of speech which consists in the substitution of a word or expression of comparatively favourable implication or less unpleasant associations, instead of the harsher or more offensive one that would more precisely designate what is intended.

Example:

"A few shelves missing from their library" is a euphemism that I have not heard before used to describe a person who is 'not very smart' similar to "isn't firing on all cylinders".

Feeling the internet: how people with visual disabilities surf the web

Friday, July 31, 2015

Can you imagine using a computer without a monitor? How would you know where to click, where to type or what images your screen should be showing?  These challenges are very real for people who are blind and visually impaired. Most of us have never considered how we would use a computer, let alone the internet without sight.
