I don't think nerds or blind nerds are unique in this sense at all. In 
fact, since the blind suffer so much from prejudice, I'm always 
surprised by how prejudiced the blind themselves can be about the blind, 
although I shouldn't be, since I think that's just human nature. Anyone 
who thinks the blind are somehow worse then the general population in 
this sense don't follow the political parties in the US, read reviews on 
Amazon or follow comments on Facebook or the news sites.

Finally just because one screen reader uses F12 to tell the time doesn't 
make it a standard.
