Blind Bargains Podcast 7: Access For iOS At 1.5x
Joe Steinkamp Wednesday, 25-Feb-2015 10:18 PM ET
Joe and JJ have had just about enough of ice and snow for one winter season. That is why they are excited to jet off to the west coast for CSUN 2015 next week. But, before they do, they wrangled in Shelly Brizbin to the program to talk "iOS Access For All", that book you may have heard us mention a few times in regards to our "Name the Show" saga. And the saga continues as you will see in the "Sound Off" section. Tune in to learn more about that, a Listener contributed demonstration of a neat service that might be able to earn you some pocket change, an Android tip and lots more in episode 7.

From Top Tech Tidbits, GO YOU BIG Blog has many resources and tips for low vision users
Discussion Topic: iOS 8 Access And Self-publishing
Shelly, JJ and Joe take a moment to talk about the fun and pitfalls around writing a comprehensive look at one of the largest mobile operating systems out there today. From Voiceover to low vision, "iOS Access For All" covers a wide range of topics. We also talk about iCars, iOS public betas and the upcoming Apple Watch.
Demonstration: Text Broker
Ever thought you had it in you to do a bit of freelance writing? For some the spoken word can come easy and for others the printed word can equal cash. Eden Kizer tells us how she managed to make money with her writing via the service aptly named "Text Broker". It's a good way to learn the ropes of writing beyond your own blog. And it could open up to even more opportunities once you get your creative mojo working. Or, it could just be enough to pay for a weekend pizza binge. you never know until you try right?
Wow, just wow. The emails, tweets and comments have been fantastic. And the more than 150 votes in our naming survey have made it such that we are not able to declare an out-and-out winner for the future name of the show... yet. Therefore, while we are in San Diego gathering all that audio goodness from CSUN, we'll leave up the naming survey and come back with an update during Episode 8. Our first email this week is from Keith, who happens to be directly related to the podcast... no really.
Thank you very much for those kind words. Here is a comment from the show notes page of episode 6.
Lots this week from Twitter. Below's is just a sample of some of the tweets we've received. First, some tweets on our story on the new Sharon voice:
Here's a follow-up on our discussion of binaural audio.
There's a lot of ways you can listen to our podcast. These tweets highlight a couple of them. Thanks for sharing.
The Verge, and others, decided to discuss the art of podcasting last week. And, naturally, that had us thinking about sound and the speed of said sounds. Take a look at these three articles and let us know how you choose to listen to your content of choice.
