I am going to learn blindfolded since I think it's really cool. I already know a little bit Old Pochmann from before today (that's when I started learning it) and I have managed to solve all the edges blindfolded but with an extremely long inspection though xD. But this is the progression thread for me.

So I tried a few solves with only edges, and memorised the letters as well. I find it hard to memorise all the letters, and also which edges I have already been on. Any tips for this? I think the corners will go much easier.

it's a hard event. Stay dedicated, I gave up a while ago(I did have successes but 3 out of 45 attempts succeeded.

Try using a memory palace to memorize, the space location on your memo are gonna help you.

*edit and use images if you don't yet.

What is the inspection time on competitions? It feels like I need 5 to 10 minutes to remember everything.

What? How does that work?
The cube starts covered, and you take the cover off after starting the timer. Then, you start memorizing it. When you are done memorizing it, you put on your blindfold and solve it. When you think you solved it, you stop the timer. Then, you take off your blindfold.

Oh, but how does the memorization count towards your final time? So you could basically sit there for a really long time?

You can't see the cube until you start the timer and take off the cube cover.
Here is a link to the video of the world record, if you want to see how it works in competitions:
Oh wow, xD. Then my times would be like ten minutes if I even make it. But I now understand your point. Thanks for explaining.
