Blind Bargains Qast 37: Rose Gold Edible leaves
Joe Steinkamp Sunday, 25-Oct-2015 5:51 PM ET
J.J. is back from New York City and he brought an interview with him to boot. Joe takes us on a short trip with the Blind Knight as his companion. Plus the regular stuff like a tip, "Sound Off" and some strangeness that always comes along in "The Last Word".
In The News:
Kevin, a pretty reliable commenter you may have seen in "sound Off", offered this shortly after the new Bard app went live.
Interview: Lynnette Tatum and ML Word Tips
J.J. caught up with Lynnette Tatum in New York who tells us about a forthcoming app call ML Word Tips, from her company MaLynWorks. If you're a Microsoft Word user and rely on the keyboard for editing, this educational how-to app may be worth a look.
Demonstration: A Blind Legend
Do you have what it takes to help the Blind Knight reunite his family? Download "A Blind Legend" for iOS and put your steel to the test. Along the way your daughter will guide you through a series of challenges. You will travel through many lands and battle vicious foes on your quest. The game works on the freemium model. So, if you are patient, you can play the game for free. however, if you are clumsy or want to get right back into the action, you can purchase additional lives in order to finish the tale. There are little to no graphics with all the action taking place between your ear buds. Touch, swipe and pinch your device to assist the Knight. he will be doing all the running while you sit comfortably in your chair. unless you make a mistake, then you might just end up moving without realizing it. The game does contain a lot of audio, therefore if you have a 16 GB device, you may want to clean some space for the app before you start off on your mission.
Steve sent in a follow up story from a previous episode.

Joe notes on the podcast that you might have a better time with a Pixel C and the keyboard accessory if you want to spend that much on an Android keyboarding experience. you might not want to use a Pixel C as a phone, man would someone's arm ever get tired from holding it up, there is probably a really good chance the C will be getting the latest Android releases far sooner than the Blackberry phone. next up, an email...
We aren't aware of any new notetakers coming with those specific feature sets. But that doesn't mean there isn't a notetaker coming on the way that does fit the description. If anyone has any info about this one, or any other rumors out there, send them in to us. Because nothing is more cool than all of us finding out if all these rumors are true! Next, an email from Adam asking for some musical suggestions...
If you have a suggestion for Adam, drop it into the comments below, or send it along to email@example.com and we'll be sharing them with Adam and mentioning them in an upcoming show.
Next week the show is haunted by ghosts, ghouls and zombies. Have a wonderful week everyone!

A new cool thing we all missed with either this or the last JAWS 16 update is allow reserved web application keystrokes which you can find in the settings center or quick settings. Enable it globally or as a personalized web setting, and either way, JAWS automatically will pass through keystrokes used by FaceBook, Gmail and those Yahoo thingies that use accessibility keystrokes.
