What's a good ad blocker for a blind web surfer?

Episode 1236 (57:58)

Julian from Los Angeles, CA

Julian is visually impaired and is frustrated by popups that he can't see when he's using his screen reader, because it takes forever to read them all. He needs a good ad blocker that can prevent them. Leo says that this is one case where ad blockers are a good ethical use. Leo recommends the FireFox extension UBlock Origin. It's also available on Google Chrome. Advertising is important, as it helps to pay the bills online. But if he can't get to his content because of the ads, he won't visit those pages anyway. So in this case, Leo recommends it.

Julian also wanted to share an electronics expo that is coming up for the visually impaired. It's called the Best In Tech Conference.
