Quiet Cars Will Finally be Required to Become Less Quiet


by J.J. Meddaugh

Nearly 6 years after the passage of the Pedestrian Safety Enhancement Act, rules have finally been put in place to ensure that quiet cars will make noise when traveling at low speeds. Most vehicles traveling under 18.6 MPH will need to emit an audible sound, though the ruling gives automakers flexibility on what exactly that sound would be. The rules have been delayed for years which has also delayed their implementation. The new rules are set to take effect by September 1, 2019 and cost the auto industry roughly $39 million annually.

You Have TO Pay TO Have Your Say On What You Will Play


by Scott Davert

A Kickstarter campaign has been launch by Audio Game Hub which seeks to develop 5 audio games. Backers of the campaign will be permitted to choose what the 5 games would include. The choices of games range from side scrollers to boxing to casino oriented choices.

Audio Game Hub may be a familiar name to readers, as they have produced a suite of 8 audio games that were released earlier this year on the Android, iOS and Windows platforms. According to the campaign page, the 5 chosen games will be added to what has already been created. For a demonstration of what the already created app sounds like on iOS, you can check out this AppleVis podcast

At the time of writing, the campaign has raised $3018 of $4259, with 23 days left. The page also says that the project will only be funded if the previously mentioned goal is met.

by Scott Davert

The Apple Rundown: The Command Triple Click Home Edition


by Joe Steinkamp

September 19th seems so long ago.
Back in those halcyon days of a month and a half ago, when I knew another Apple event was on the horizon, I mused that I would have little to post other than the iPod turning 15 years old. Maybe a few articles on the new mac OS would be in order. And, if it made the street date, I'd have some things to post about iOS 10.1. Sure, there would be the 4th quarter earnings report to ponder. And I'd end the article with something funny in regards to the headphone jack.

then 2016 happened with its ability to upend everything you know and expect in a rational universe.

Chicken Nugget 4.3 Fixes Blank Tweets, Rolls with Twitter's Changes


by J.J. Meddaugh

Accessible Apps has released another free update to the Chicken Nugget Twitter client for Windows. Version 4.3 was largely necessitated by some changes from Twitter's API in how tweets are displayed. Some parts of a tweet, such as a picture or quoted tweet, no longer count in the 140 character limit, allowing for slightly longer tweets to be written in these situations. Version 4.3 accounts for this change and also includes some other improvements. You can download version 4.3 from the source link below, and look at the complete changelog after the jump.

We'll cover the news, what there is of it, but we called in the crew to provide us some feature content to go along with our tip and "Last Word". It's a darn good thing we have Patrick and Ricky around to help us in these dark times of a barren news cycle.

Blind Bargains Qast 70: The Bard On BARD


by Joe Steinkamp

We're back from vacation. No really we are, with lots of news to catch up on from all that time away. J.J., Joe and Patrick might be a little rusty this week. However, that just allowed for some very interesting conversations in our Discussion Topic. Even with all this news, we managed to still find a way to fit in "Sound Off" and the "Last Word". And perhaps the first time we've ad-libbed a tip in the middle of a program.

Blind Bargains Qast 69: Just the T1p$


by Joe Steinkamp

We get a ton of listener feedback and show suggestions in from social media and from, of course, feedback@blindbargains.com One of those ideas for a show involved a summary of our previous tips all rolled up and placed inside an episode of its very own. With J.J. traveling, Patrick on vacation and Joe about to be doing some traveling of his own, this seemed like the perfect time to act on this concept.

In this episode you will hear previous tips, along with a few new ones, from the BBQ Crew. Here are some of the links to the episodes where these tips originally resided.

iPhone 6S, iPod Touch, and other tech items

I have several tech items available. First up is an iPhone 6S. This is the 64Gb model in space gray, and is in excellent condition. It is running the latest version of iOS. Can send it with Voiceover enabled so you can use it right out of the box. Phone is currently locked to T-Mobile. Will ship phone in original box with original accessories. Also, I have a matt film screen protector on it, but can remove it upon request. Finally, I will include an Urban Armor Gear case that will protect the phone superbly from most falls and bumps. Trust me, this baby's been through some moments, and has come out unscathed each and every time. Asking $600, but can accept other offers. Next is an iPod Touch 5th generation. This black iPod is the 32Gb model, and is also in great condition. It is running the latest software available before iOS 10. Includes a matt film screen protector (again, I can remove upon request,) along with a couple of cases, one of which being a brand new Otterbox Defender. iPod will ship in original box as well. I'm asking $200, but feel free to make a reasonable offer. Third is a Jambox speaker by Jawbone. Works great and sounds great, whether connected via Bluetooth of lined in with an Aux cable.. Comes in original box with charger, USB cable, and Aux cable. Asking $60. Next, I've got an HDMI switch, which is perfect if you want to connect a bunch of things, but your TV only has 1 or 2 HDMI ports. Simply connect an HDMI cable between your TV and the hub, and then connect up to 3 devices into the other HDMI ports. Tune to the HDMI channel connected to the hub, and switch around between the devices you want to use with the included remote. If you're tired of plugging and unplugging devices because you don't have enough ports, this is for you. You'll get the HDMI switch, power cord, remote, and I'll throw in an HDMI cable. Asking $30. Lastly, just a couple blindness items. I have a Colorino color identifier from APH, and the 1st generation iBill that I would like to send to a new home, as I have little use for them anymore, and they are well taken care of. They'll come protected in their own cases, along with fresh batteries, so you can start using them right away. I can see these working out for older people, non-smart phone folks, or newly blind individuals. Would make great Christmas gifts. Asking $150 for the Colorino, and $65 for the iBill. I only accept PayPal as payment. All prices are negotiable. Prices do not include shipping, but if you buy some or all items at once, I can ship them out for free. Please email me with any questions. Thanks for looking.

HandyTech ActiveBraille for 1800

I have an ActiveBraille for sale for 1800 dollars. This display really is quite the technical marvel; it has notetaker-like functionality, a few games for when you have to wait a long time and contains the ATC technology that detects where your finger is reading, so it can for example scroll to the next line when your finger reaches the end of the line. It reads epubs and pdfs without isue and works with all popular screenreading options. It would be easiest if shipping can be arranged some time between the 5th and the 16th, since that's when I will be in the US where I am guessing you, dear reader, are from.

Connects to PC using parallel, USB or eathernet ports. Access to menus through ET Speaks. Includes manufacturer-approved packing material, USB plug and braille documentation.

64GB iPhone5, Victor Stratus 4M for trade, Wireless Hotspot, Asus 2core Netbook

I have several items to sell, and the title is somewhat self-explanatory, but I'll give some more details and clarify a few things: The 64GB iPhone 5 is unlocked, in like new condition, and comes with the original box and a certified charger. It was replaced in early 2015, but hasn't been used much since early 2016 so still holds a charge extremely well. It will ship with the latest version of iOS10 as of the shipping date. $225 or best offer (includes shipping to North America or up to $20). The Victor Reader Stratus is a desktop book reader from Humanware. It accepts SD cards, USB media such as a flash drive, or a CD. This is the Stratus model 4M, a simplified version with four arrows in place of the keypad. It still has a full menu system and much of the same basic functionality is there, but it has fewer buttons and is intended for less technically inclined users who just want a book reader that works. It supports common audio file formats, daisy, and many other ebook types. Text files are read using Acapella voices (Heather and Ryan for US English). If no daisy navigation is available, the unit allows you to navigate by folder, which is useful when looking through a collection of files on an SD card, for instance. It also keeps track of individual listening positions in all files. The speaker on it is quite good, and even music listening is a pleasant experience. For this, I will accept cash offers, but will also accept offers of a portable reading device that reads e-text and audio files. This doesn't have to be a specialized device either: Android phones and iPod touches make great book readers, and if you have one lying around in good condition and it isn't stuck on a 3 year old version of the operating system, I'll trade for it. The Wireless Hotspot is manufactured by Sierra Wireless. It's about the size of a flip phone (if said phone were closed), and accepts a sim card. Using cell towers and the data plan on that sim card, it provides internet over WiFi, similar to the personal hotspot feature on some smartphones. It has a very accessible web interface, and distinct sound queues for everything you might want to know about, including power on and power off. It can also act as a wireless micro SD card reader. $120 or best offer (including shipping to North America). The Asus 1015PX netbook has an 11 inch screen, a 1.66 ghz duol core processor, 250gb of hard drive space, and an upgraded 2gb of ram. It will come with either Windows 7 starter or Windows 10, depending on preference. I'll also include a screen reader which can come up automatically at startup. As far as I know, the battery is rated for five hours but easily lasts longer than that, even on high performance mode. It's not a gaming or media editing machine, but it makes a good word processor and web browser. $120 or best offer (does not include shipping).

Motorola Surfboard 6141 and unlocked GSM iPhone 5S 64 GB for sale

Selling a couple of items. 1. Motorola Surfboard 6141 Docsis 3.0 modem. Works perfectly fine. The only reason I’m selling it is that I recently upgraded to a 6190 a couple of months ago. The 6141 is a solid workhorse that never gave me a day’s trouble. I used it with TWC, but can be used with other cable providers. Be sure about compatibility though. Won’t work with Direct TV for example. Haven’t paid a monthly rental fee in over five years. This would pay for itself in less than seven months. Included is an AC wall charger and cat6 cable. Asking $38.00 which would include shipping. 2. GSM unlocked in excellent condition space gray iPhone 5S 64 GB. The phone has a tempered glass screen protector installed. No scratches, stuffs or cracks. Will come in its original box and with all unused accessories and can throw in a couple of in very good condition cases. The wife used this device on T-Mobile, but as it’s unlocked, it can be used on any carrier supporting the GSM network. Asking $295.00 free priority mail shipping included. I take PayPal or cash if you’re local (zip 92336) and can pick up. Can provide photos as well.

Excellent condition Juliet Pro for 1,250 or best offer

This Juliet Pro is a few years old in original box. It was taken out of box for about 1 week with about 3 uses. It is in excellent condition and I have never found a use for it since so decided to sell. I will consider any reasonable offers.

Accessible low-vision/Braille board games (Scrabble & Monopoly) in good condition

These two accessible board games were bought to play with my son who never quite got interested in either of them. Purchased through Maxi Aids for $80.00 per game, I do not believe this is a fair asking price. Cover of Monopoly box looks good, Scrabble box has some very minor water damage on it. All pieces are included and good to go and in good shape. I am asking $85 for the games as a bundle. This price includes shipping.
