Voice Dream Reader Joins the Android Party


by J.J. Meddaugh

Voice Dream Reader is the latest popular app to make the jump to Android. Version 1 was recently posted to Google Play for the same $9.99 price and offers an accessible way to read a variety of formats including .PDF, .HTML, and unencrypted EPUB files. Like its iOS counterpart, features are designed to benefit both those with no vision as well as sighted users, with a variety of visual and auditory functions to customize reading. Direct BookShare integration is also included. Due to the nature of Android, any built-in voice can be used for reading, though premium voices will still be available which offer word by word highlighting. The author includes some additional notes on future plans for the app which we've included below. Thanks to Jerry for the tip.

We're Testing out the @Magic Text Message Personal Assistant, and Need your Help


by J.J. Meddaugh

Earlier this year, we heard about a new personal assistant service called Magic which works entirely via text messages. It can be used for everything from arranging deliveries to solving complex situations where you just don't have time to personally attend to every matter.
In their own words, "We have trained operators standing by 24/7 to answer every one of your requests." What exactly can Magic do? "Anything you want. As long as it's not illegal. Seriously. Just try it."
At Blind Bargains, we're always excited for new services that promise to make our lives easier. But we need your help in deciding a good test case for Magic. That's where you come in. In the comments, let us know what we should have Magic do. Perhaps you just want some sushi on your doorstep. Perhaps you need someone to come over and mow your lawn. Or maybe there's something access-specific that Magic could help with. We're clearly less creative than you tonight, so leave your best ideas in the comments. Who knows, we may act on your request.
To sign up for yourself, text the word hello to 83489. For now, you'll be put on a waiting list as the service expands to let in more users. We'll report back soon with our results.

No Data Connection in Orlando? Smart City's Illegal Practices May have Been to Blame


by J.J. Meddaugh

If you had trouble receiving a reliable data connection while at one of the recent NFB conventions, network jamming may be the reason. Smart City LLC, the company which provides wireless Internet services to several convention centers including the Orange County Convention Center, has admitted to interfering with wireless networks to block signals from cell phone providers. Visitors instead were presented the option of paying nearly $80 a day for Internet access, often more than the cost of an entire month of 4G service from a cellular provider. Smart City has been fined $750,000 and has claimed to cease the use of their blocking technology.

According to the FCC order .PDF, "Smart City (i) admits that it prevented certain Wi-Fi users at these locations from establishing or maintaining a Wi-Fi network independent of Smart City’s network, (ii) will implement a compliance plan under which it commits to not engage in Wi-Fi blocking, and (iii) agrees to pay a $750,000 civil penalty."

Jim Kitchen Mega Games Pack Released, Works with Windows 10


by J.J. Meddaugh

On the sad ccasion of the death of Jim Kitchen last week, Bryan Smart has released a mega pack which includes all of his Windows games in a single installer. It runs on modern versions of Windows including Windows 10.

In Bryan's words, "Jim was an extraordinary person that dedicated the later years of his life to creating free games for the blind community. Over the years, his games were released by the comically fictitious Kitchen’s Inc. As Jim’s game collection grew, the joke became that he had programmed everything except the kitchen sink. With his passing, I present to you The Kitchen’s Sink, containing all 37 of his SAPI-speech- based Windows games and apps, in one fun-packed place!" Follow the link to download the games.

Popular Game Developer Jim Kitchen Dies at 58


by J.J. Meddaugh

Jim Kitchen, one of the most prolific developers of free audio games for DOS and Windows, has died. He was 58. For nearly as long as there has been accessible Windows computers, Jim Kitchen through his Kitchens Inc. website has provided a daunting supply of free games to pass the time or otherwise entertain. Among his most popular were his rendition of golf, which included an editor to create custom golf courses, and Monopoly, his take on the classic board game.

From Las Vegas titles to sports games, many timeless classics received the Jim Kitchen treatment. Kitchen has been creating and posting games since 1995, when the first DOS titles were released. From the random commercials in baseball to the sporadic Homer Simpsons quotes in many of his titles, his games always came with a bit of character. These were programs that were simple to learn, and a great way to teach computers or just kill a Sunday afternoon. We've linked to the complete obituary and you can post your comments and memories below.

#SightVillage Audio: Dine And Think In Braille At Dens Le Noir


by Joe Steinkamp

Dave ran into his old mate Darren Paskell, from ACB Radio days, and was surprised about his current employment. Seems that Mr. Paskell is currently working with a French chain of restaurants who specialize in the "Dining in the Dark" concept. "Dans Le Noir" offers a limited menu but that hasn't stopped the eatery's patrons from enjoying an endless world of experiencing food and drink without visual cues. Dave gets the inside scoop on what it takes to serve others in this capacity. Also, he gets a few funny stories out of him on what can happen when you get a group of people together in this type of environment. Visit Dans Le Noir for more information on how you, too, can be a part of this dining trend.

Free Teleseminar on Changes to Braille

The Braille Authority of North America (BANA) has set the date of January 4, 2016, as the official date upon which the USA will transition from conventional American English Braille to the Unified Braille Code (UEB). Think Y2K for Braille! Although this date will come and go, many books are available and will remain available in conventional Braille. Others will be produced in UEB, and others will be available (at least for a time) in either format. However, what does this change mean for the longer term? What does it mean for people using electronic braille devices? What about devices manufactured after January 4, 2016? What about students who use braille in the classroom? With this as backdrop, ACB Families invites you to join us for our August informational teleconference which we’re calling “Unified Braille Demystified”. Our speakers will discuss some of the more significant changes which UEB will bring to our braille books and devices, the impacts of UEB on technology, and how the transition might play out for children and other students who use braille in the classroom. Come with your questions and leave with information that will help you weather this coming shift to the Unified Braille Code. Speakers: Deanna Scoggins and Dave Wilkinson. Deanna resides in Louisville, KY, and is a Board Member of ACB Families. She has assisted the American Printing House for the Blind with preschool materials development and has a wealth of experience with very young braille readers. Dave Wilkinson is a life-long access technology user and a Sales Manager for Himms Technologies. He is familiar with braille devices and has participated in a number of UEB meetings and conferences focused on the implementation of the UEB here in the USA Date/Time – Sunday, August 23, 2015 – 9:00 pm Eastern.

I have a HumanWare BrailleNote MPower BT 32 and HumanWare BrailleNote Apex BT 32 I would like to sell. I am looking for around £3300 for the Apex, which is around $5140 USD.

For the BrailleNote MPower I am looking for £1800 GBP, which is around $2800 USD. It has just recently had a brand new motherboard and battery installed, but the braille display is nowhere near as firm as it once was, and some pins do stick.

For sale: APH braille plus mobile manager, docking station and refreshabraille18 bundle.

I have for sale a bundle package including the american printing house for the blind braille plus 40 gigabyte mobile manager, it's docking station and the refreshabraille 18 braille display.  I am including the following: APH leather case for the mobile manager. APH leather case for the refreshabraille 18. APH leather case that can hold both units so that when the refreshabraille is connected via bluetooth, you can use both units conveniently, similar to having a notetaker with a built in braille display. APH leather case that came with the docking station. 2 charging cables that connect the braille plus to either a USB device or it's AC adapter, one is still sealed. The AC adapter for the braille plus. The AC adapter for the docking station. A USB charger to charge the refreshabraille 18 and a USB cable to connect it to the braille plus or a computer. The battery in the braille plus was purchased right before APH stopped selling replacement parts for the unit, has barely been used, holds a full charge and lasts for a few days of normal use.  You can make it last even longer by inserting the braille plus in to the docking station and using it's battery to charge the braille plus.  The docking station includes a very comfortable laptop style full keyboard, as well as an ethernet port, 2 USB ports (one to connect the braille plus to a computer and another to connect a flash drive) and excelent sounding stereo speakers. The refreshabraille 18 braille display can be connected via USB or bluetooth and will also work with other devices such as a computer with a screen reader or an iPhone or iPad.  When connected to the braille plus, there is a complete list of commands for controlling every aspect of the braille plus through the refreshabrailles keyboard. I am asking $1000.00 and that includes free shipping.  I will accept paypal only for payment and please feel free to contact me with any questions regarding this package.  I will also help the buyer get up and running if they would like.  If you can't afford the more expensive note takers and are looking for something similar, this would be a great purchase.  Not only are you getting an excellent notetaker and book reader but a querty keyboard for it and a braille display with braille keyboard as well.  I have used these units specifically for work so they are in excellent condition. Thanks for reading.
