Hi all.
this is a small cast I am putting out via my dropbox right now.
its going to coolblindtech right now, and is a cast promoing a new kickstarter project that looks good.
the link is

here is the short piece I submitted to the cbt site along with my file.
a full cast is coming, and will be here soon.
well as soon as I can get the program to look at.
The following files should acompany this cast.
more info on the cast should be at the following audiogames forum post.
I will also put the origional email I got.
the cast has one of the demos mentioned in it, but you can include both demos in shownotes as well as the kickstarter and descussion forum thread if you want.
one thing to tell you is that this cast is not finnished at all.
I am still waiting for a copy of the program in its current state so I can test it out on my 2 wrigs, win7 and winxp, I may even test it out on multipul units to see how it performs, since it is supposed to be for those just learning.
what I have is with the material I have.
the kickstarter campaigne is about 10 days so 9 days now on the day I submit.
I hope to do a full review, the software seems to be the old style user pay software, pay what you want, when you want, or not at all if you don’t want.
from the email I recieved, the links are
Demo 1: http://youtu.be/qW4hqjD-x8g
Demo 2: http://youtu.be/lGbs6SqP364
Kickstarter campaign page: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1642636077/talkietype
some more info from this continues on
I’ve been volunteering in the VI community for a few years, and most of the students I’ve spoken with groan when I ask about their experience learning the computer keyboard. Besides not enjoying their experience, they only had the opportunity to use the software at the state school for the blind (because it was cost-prohibitive), and many relied on their TVI.

The goal of the TalkieType project is to provide a more enjoyable learning experience which is affordable, fun, and doesn’t require 1-on-1 instruction. Students who do have access to a TVI will be to use that time for other tasks. Being affordable is a very important aspect of this project, and any family which can’t afford to pay anything won’t have to pay.

the intro email follows as sent yesterday to the nvda descussion list on freelists
Some might consider this spam, so please accept my apologies. I thought that some people on this list might be interested in hearing about some new software to help non-visual users learn how to use a computer keyboard.

It’s called TalkieType and its < http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1642636077/talkietype>Kickstarter campaign has only 10 days left. If the project meets its modest goal, it will be made available as pay-what-you-want software. One of the stretch goals will make TalkieType completely free and open source.

I truly believe that this project can make a difference in the community, and I’d really appreciate your support by either pledging or helping me spread the word.

More information about TalkieType can be found on its Kickstarter page: < http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1642636077/talkietype>http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1642636077/talkietype
I really don’t have much to show for it but this is where its all going
this is more a promo cast rather than a full podcast.
both of the videos are basicly the same as eachother so you are not missing anything.
thanks
shaun.

thats it guys.
remember as of posting you have 9 days to fund this.
this should be quite good.

Be Sociable, Share!
