Blind Bargains Qast 107: The Convention Special Before the Conventions


With conventions on the horizon, the show will sound just a bit different this week and includes one fewer host, but it's still packed with lots of useful info. PK Mishra stops by to talk about the O6, a portable device which can let you control VoiceOver and more by turning a dial. Scott Davert demonstrates a new speaker dock that we're not really sure how to pronounce, and it's time for the annual A T Guys summer product showcase. While you're soaking in the sun or packing for Reno or Orlando, we hope you enjoy episode 107.

Where tradition meets innovation

The O6 with PK Mishra

The O6 is a different kind of wearable device which can control VoiceOver or other phone functions by turning a dial or pressing one of its buttons. PK of Fingertips Lab joins us to explain exactly how this thing works and how it can enhance your iPhone experience.
You can learn more from the O6 website or the specific O6 accessibility page
You can purchase the O6 now from A T Guys or preorder it to pick up at convention.

A T Guys Summer Product Showcase

Speaking of our own store, we figured it was about time to give you an update on the latest products on our site. We will cover what's available at the summer shows or on our website, including the new E5 Wireless Smart Speaker. You can visit http://www.atguys.com and use coupon code NFB17 or ACB17 if you wish to preorder and pick up items at convention. We're at booth 43 for ACB or A19 for NFB.

The Vaux Dock for Amazon Echo Dot

Is it pronounced Vo or vawx? Scott Davert doesn't have a good answer for that question but he does give us a taste of the VAUX Cordless Home Speaker + Portable Battery for Amazon Echo Dot, a $49.95 device which can make your Dot sound a lot louder. Use the link above to buy one now from Amazon.

After this, we delve into convention coverage, starting with the ACB convention near Reno. Stay tuned to our feed or your favorite podcast app to keep up with the latest convention news. And if you're leaving soon for Reno or Orlando, safe travels.
