What Does the Box Say? New Blog to Offer Comcast XFinity Accessibility Demos and Articles

Comcast is set to launch new accessibility features for their accessible set-top television box, and a new blog has been created to offer podcasts and articles to demonstrate the new features. Liam Erven has launched "What does the Box Say" which will include demonstrations of the new service rolling out for XFinity cable subscribers over the coming weeks. Comcast is the first cable provider to provide accessibility to such features as the program guide, on-demand programming, and DVR viewing on a set-top box, a trend that is likely to evolve due to the passage of the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act. Check the link on this post to view the blog.

Opinion: A Salute to the SeroTalk Podcast Network; Hosts with Class and So Much MOre

A few years ago, a good friend of mine, Joe Steinkamp, came to me with an idea. What if we put a few people together and record a show talking all about Android. At the time, I thought he was a bit crazy since after all, the number of blind users on an Android device was likely somewhere close to 0. Even if a few of us could successfully fill an hour talking about Google's fledgling operating system, who would actually listen? It was this willingness to think outside of the box that drove the popularity of the SeroTalk Podcast Network. Read more

Serotek Loses 5, Future of Company in Doubt

Serotek, the makers of the System Access screen reader and the company behind the Serotalk Podcast Network, have parted ways with the majority of their staff, leaving the future of the company in doubt. Those losing their jobs include Buddy Brannan, Ricky Enger, Lisa Salinger, Joe Steinkamp, and Richard Wells. Steinkamp and Enger were let go last week while the other three announced their departures earlier on Friday. The staff members let go produced and participated in many popular podcasts including The SeroTalk Podcast, Triple-Click Home, That Android Show, and End of line among others. This leaves a bare-bones staff including long-time programmer Matt Campbell and producer Jamie Pauls who remain with the company, at least for the moment. According to a post on the @serotek twitter account, the 5 left on good terms and the company is alive and well. More information is promised from the company, according to founder Mike Calvo. We know a lot of you might like to post your memories, comments, or well wishes to those who have departed. Feel free to do this in the comments. Update: An earlier version of this post stated that the 5 were fired. We based this off earlier information we had received but are unable to 100% confirm, so have changed the wording to reflect this. We apologize for any confusion. We'll post more updates as we receive them.

Mountbatten Brailler Pro & Braille Mimic Writer For Visual Impaired

Mountbatten Pro (Humanware Braille Embosser) & Mountbatten Mimic Display. Price $2000 Comes with Case and all Disc and Instructions. These were purchased for my Son who is visually impaired several years ago. He no longer uses them and I would like someone to have them that can use them at a fraction of the cost. They wasn't used alot maybe 10 times. The Mountbatten Pro now has both digitized and synthetic speech providing a multi-sensory approach to learning Braille. You can combine typing and touching Braille with the audio reinforcement of real speech confirming the letters or dot combinations you have Brailled. The synthetic speech features enable a student to create an assignment, edit text, modify, delete, block text and then produce a copy of the assignment in Braille. The Mountbatten Pro back translation software gives student's added independence and flexibility by allowing them to simultaneously produce a print copy of their work as it is being entered in Braille. Teachers and peers can also view in text what is written in Braille using the new Mimic LCD display. In addition to helping blind students learn Braille the Mountbatten Pro is also a wonderful resource for parents, vision teachers, and aides who want to quickly and easily produce small volumes of Braille. A person who knows next to nothing about Braille, can type information onto an attached PC keyboard, and the Mountbatten Pro will translate and emboss the typed letters into perfect Grade II Braille. Braille output- 6 dot standard (8 Dot available as option) Memory- 480k user Ram (approx. 650 pages of Braille) Input/Output- 2 serial ports, parallel port, PC port PS2 connector (to connect standard PC keyboard to MB Pro) Power Supply- AC only model: 100 - 240 volts 1.3 amp; Battery model: 12 volts DC, 1.0 amp (auto cut-out battery protection) Dimensions- Weight: 4.7 kg; Height 120mm x Depth 240mm x Width 450mm Retails for 4000.00 The Mimic is a 20 character by 4 line LCD display that connects to the Mountbatten Brailler. It allows for easy supervision of a student by sighted teachers. The Mimic can store up to 32 pages of braille as text thus allowing for review of work in progress or to check back over previous work. Battery operated and portable it connects to the Mountbatten via an allocated Mimic Serial port. The Mimic can also connect to a PC and use MB-Comm to save or record its files. Retails $250-500 Both items are in Great Working Condition! Video link I made to show it works https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bv71V_z7CrM&list=UUevOnRU7byaxmZZRS4IHaMg

This project works to preserve and document a thematic history through personal recollections. We are collecting stories of New Yorkers who have lived (or currently live) with a visual impairment or a disability. The Library is training community members to conduct these interviews (you can volunteer for this as well and collaborate on the process). Interviews will be shared in a preservation archive and on the New York Public Library website Visible Lives is a project of Andrew Heiskell Braille and Talking Book Library in Manhattan. A public archive will be kept at this local branch for future generations to listen to and research. THE INTERVIEW PROCESS: After you sign up, you will be contacted by a trained oral history interviewer in order to schedule your interview. Interviews can be conducted at the Andrew Heiskell Library, over the phone, or at a location that is most convenient for you. Interviews typically last between 45 minutes to 2 hours depending on how long you’d like to tell your story. This is your opportunity to tell your story in the way you’d like it to be told. Interviewers will come prepared with ideas for questions, but feel free to change topics or suggest topics before the interview begins. We will send you a copy of your interview in the mail. SHARE YOUR STORY: Contact Alexandra Kelly at AlexandraKelly@nypl.org or 212-621-0552 to sign up or for more information. Also visit: oralhistory.nypl.org/neighborhoods/visible-lives

Next generation Perkins brailler for $300 or will trade for an older model.

I want to sell or trade my next generation Perkins manual brailler. I've had it for a couple of years, and it shows very minor signs of use. A piece of plastic is missing from the top of the carriage, but it still works perfectly. It's just a cosmetic flaw. I will trade it for an old classic or vintage model in similar condition. I don't care about minor cosmetic flaws or signs of use, as long as the machine is in good working condition. If you don't have one to trade, I'll take $300 for it.

Jaws Lite, shareware

I have an idea to greatly lower the cost of the Jaws screen reader for home users and businesses who need jaws, but who don't need every single feature that Jaws offers. My proposal is what I call Jaws Lite shareware. Freedom Scientific Jaws lite would be a liteweight version of jaws that is shareware with the following. 1. no eloquence. Uses ESpeak and microsoft speech platform. Eloquence available for purchase separately. 2. Dialogs reminding you it is shareware every 90 minutes. to get rid of dialogs pay $5 for jaws lite home or $20 for jaws lite pro. 3. no free tech support. tech support would cost extra. 4. no dvd or physical media. download only. 5. no script manager. you cannot create scripts, only use them. You can install new scripts and uninstall scripts but they cannot be modified unless you buy script manager for $100. 6. vocalizer voices would cost extra. 7. jaws tandom center but no tandom direct unless you buy jaws pro shareware. 8. jaws lite and pro, shareware supports dongles. 9. Jaws shareware can be installed over a network but on a limit of only 10 computers. 11. no automatic jaws updater. to update you would have to download and reinstall from the web. Please everyone who reads this help to make jaws lite a reality by emailing Freedom Scientific at suggestions@freedomscientific.com . If you want to discuss Jaws Lite in person feel free to contact me by email or phone. My contact info is below.
