Subject: Any blind / VI friendly solutions to using an Amiga?
So I'm a 16 year old blind guy from Poland. I've been in to retro tech since I was about 12.
About a year ago a few of my friends introduced me to modules. That in turn led me to discovering the mod archive, downloading every single snapshot, and creating a favorites folder with about 150 modules in it.
It's partly sound trackers and modules, partly Youtube channels like The 8bit Guy, and some more independent research that made me appreciate the Amiga computers.
Recently I've been getting in to Amiga emulation, but I have no idea if using screen recognition alone will make Workbench usable in any way.
I know there was another thread about a screen-reader on this sub that hasn't really went anywhere, and the only piece of software linked was a self-voicing application that also served as a text editor and such, but that wouldn't help with general Workbench usability.
If anyone has any tips or software, or knows any insane people that would take on the task to write a screen-reader for the Amiga, please do let me know.

Subject: An infuriating Furia issue
After a recap, a keyboard membrane replacement, and a few broken traces fixed, I managed to get my Amiga 600 working again. in my infinite wisdom and full knowledge of it's flaws, I decided to upgrade it with a Furia 68020 accelerator. Since then, my amiga has been nothing but headaches and disappointment.
The first issue I'm having is related to the Furia's well known pickiness when it comes to CF cards. I do have a CF card that the Furia will recognize and boot with, but when trying to boot with a new buffered IDE interface, it simply refuses to, with the Disk LED going dim.
Secondly, after around fifteen or twenty minutes of operation, my Amiga becomes unstable and eventually crashes completely. Simply rebooting or power cycling does not bring it back. it fails with either a yellow screen or a red screen and it's never consistent.
I've run AmigaTestKit in RAM mode for 24h with no sign of a crash, same with running the Frontier Elite II intro (my usual "Is it going to crash" benchmark I used while debugging the broken traces), however when using workbench or actively playing a game it really loves to just keel over and die for no particular reason. My initial thought was that it was the aging original power supply overheating/undervolting due to the extra power draw of the Furia and the CF card, but switching to a modern power supply has not solved the issue.
Is this just the furia being the furia, do I have a somehow defective unit, or is my repair of the A600 incomplete somehow? To clarify; all of these issues began once the furia was installed.
The hardware I'm running with is as follows:
- Amiga A600 UK PAL, Board Rev. 2D
- Kickstart 3.2.1, Rev. 47.102
- Furia EC020 Rev. 3, Firmware V13.1
- Amiga 600 buffered CF->IDE adapter (AMIGAstore.eu revision)
- Individual Computers A603 1mb RAM expansion plus RTC
- SanDisk Ultra II 2gb CF Card

Subject: Playstation 3 controller not working in game with Amiberry
Just like the title says.
I have a Raspberry Pi 3B+. I have freshly installed a Retropie image, then downloaded Amiberry (installed from binary) and loaded the correct kickstarts.
All of my games are in .LHA format and they launch fine. The amiberry GUI itself launches fine and here my Playstation 3 controller works and I can even configure it. To be clear: .UAE games don't start.
BUT in game, in every game, the Playstation 3 controller is completely dead.
Also, there are no hotkeys that I can use to exit the emulator. I have to brutally shut down the Pi.
Last thing: if I launch Retroarch from the Retropie menu, I cannot download the Amiberry core, I can only download PUAE.

Subject: Lost Amiga Music? (Pinball Illusions)
Almost every mod rip of this game I've found lacks all of the extra tracks, just the main themes for the tables then the sound effects/jingles on a separate mod file. This game has some pretty serious tunes but I cant get a mod rip of any tracks aside from the select few in the 4 or so rips I've found.
Another thing is that the tracks I'm talking about can be heard in a set of mp3s and on some youtube links, but they are all slightly desynced and have some pretty intense chorus effects over the music. The only good way to listen to these is in a clean wav or within a tracker, any other way is just awful and its sadly all I got since this music is so damn elusive.
