Blind Bargains Qast 25: Cortana, Earl Gray, Hot!
Joe Steinkamp Friday, 31-Jul-2015 8:31 PM ET
It is finally here! The day many have eagerly awaited, or dreaded as the case may be, has come upon us all with the release of Windows 10. Joe, Byron Lee and Rick Reed discuss thoughts and experiences with Microsoft's newest operating system. And, not just because J.J. is on vacation this week, the news cycle this week is bigger than usual as many celebrate the 25th birthday of the ADA. There are also the little matters of the "Last Word" and your feedback in "sound Off'. So get a pot of tea ready, it is one jam-packed episode of information!
This episode is brought to you by HIMS, who would like to remind you that "Your needs are our solutions". Check out the E-Bot Video Magnifier, the Blaze EZ reading solution, the new Smart Beetle Braille Display and more by visiting the HIMS website. Or, follow them on Twitter.
We would also like to thank the gang at Mystic Access for sponsoring our show this week. In this episode, we include some excerpts from their new Victor Reader Stream tutorial. To learn more about Mystic Access, visit http://www.mysticaccess.com
In The 25th Birthday ADA News:
Most of the links in this section were not discussed on the show, however, we thought them worth a read for those who wanted to know more about ADA and inclusive design.
In The News:
Freedom Scientific Offers Enterprise Accessibility Training
Discussion Topic: Windows 10
Byron Lee recently had a conversation with the gang at the 22 Point blog about Windows 10
We'll cover some fantastic emails in our next in-studio episode, your tweetage too, but for this week we'll concentrate mainly on comments from past episodes and one from a news article at Blind Bargains. Like this nifty comment by Talkback on Nifty GPS.
There is a market for anything or everything we guess. And so Kathy tells us in her remarks from episode 24.
And Greg writes in with his thoughts on browser access.
Hodge podge is a kind way of summing up this week's foray into the last words...
Did we miss a story? Was there better resources out there for Windows 10? Are you upgrading to Windows 10 or are you just sick of it all until iOS9 comes around to bother you with even more stories of upgrading? let us know in the comments section below or write us: firstname.lastname@example.org
