Make firefox read to you

This will be just a quick note because this will be a place where I find it again and you may enjoy this. If you are on linux and like being read to by the computer rather than reading yourself for what reason ever you will most likely enjoy installing a package that on Arch Linux is called "speech-dispatcher" and using the reader-mode. There you will notice a third option below closing reader-mode, changing font-size with the icon of headphones. When you click it you are presented with a most gay-forward menu to start/stop being talked to, skip chapters forth and back and change the voice that reads to you. That shall be all for now, enjoy your time, make black lives matter, wear your mask and stay healthy.

As an Arch user you may have noticed your USB devices won't work when connected after a kernel update.

Hence when you plug in a new device the corresponding module is not found and you won't be able to use it.
