Blind Bargains Qast 52: Sexy Voices In Your Head
Joe Steinkamp Monday, 22-Feb-2016 1:14 PM ET
We catch up on a few weeks of news, we revisit the talking Xbox with a cord cutting solution then discuss how an eye is like a pancake. No, seriously, we do. Oh, of course, we also have "Sound Off" and a Dropbox tip to share... get it? Dropbox? Share?
In The News:
From @joslee: Starting today, NVDASR can announce Cortana's text responses automatically:
From @AFB1921: "We are proud to announce our 2016 Access Award Winners!"
From @LFLegal" "Press release about DOJ @CivilRights settlement w/@Greyhound about #ADA violations:
Demonstration: Xbox One Speaks The One Guide With Narrator
In November we talked with Gadget Guy Liam about the update that allows the Xbox One to use Narrator. A question that joe and Liam couldn't answer was "Does the TV Guide function work with Narrator?". Joe wanted to know this so he set out to test it himself. With a Xbox TV Tuner and an HDTV antenna, Joe shows us if you can get your local TV stations to fess up their schedules through the Xbox oneGuide feature.
Tip: Remove The Dropbox Badge
You may run into this if you are running the Windows version of the Dropbox client and save often in programs like Microsoft Word. The Dropbox Badge is a kind of floating window that helps some save or share files into the Dropbox cloud with ease. Sadly, at the time of this writing, it isn't friendly to most screen readers out there. This tip will help you remove this tool from Dropbox and we highly recommend it for those who work in Microsoft office, and share with others in Dropbox, on a regular basis.
MattFromFlorida heard our interview with mr. Toth, in episode 51, and he sent in this comment.
@LouisDo250 writes in with this question.
J.J. notes that he uses the online versions of Quick Books. joe notes that Ricky relies on Fresh Books via the web browser. but that can't be the only solutions our listeners use can it? Send in what you use for either your personal or professional financial tasks so we can share with others out there.
Our 2016 roadmap is set and we can't wait to bring you along on our various road trips through our audio coverage of the year's events. We maybe only halfway through the second month of this leap year, however, the big stuff kicks into gear starting in March with CSUN. Stay tuned!
