Tech 286 is now out

Tech 286 is now out. We’re working on anchor, a service I heard about, and found out that the RSS has returned to my server although I still see it as part of the permanent forwarding. In the meantime, you can use the current RSS feed or mixcloud to get your copies. I’m hoping to get this resolved so I can see how things work with it.

Here are the show notes with this show, and thanks for listening!

Welcome to podcast 286 of the technology blog and podcast series with Jared Rimer. On this podcast:

  • Skype gets a repreave as Version 7 is loved by many in the blind and sighted alike. This is because its got global hotkeys that are loved by all. We learn some good news from Michael in Indiana, who lets me know about the Freedom Scientific podcast and from there, we learn that Skype is going to allow us to use Skype verson 7 for the foreseeable future.
  • Very Good Security raises $8.5 million to handle companies’ sensitive data is something that I feel is pretty good news! I normally don’t tweet or talk about these, but I found this one to be promising, and I hope that this company, based in San Francisco, takes the money and really develops this to something great! I want to wish them good luck!
  • Dice world, a game package for the blind and sighted for IOS and Android, released an update. I’m not sure if Android has this yet, but a short demo showing you the newest feature, a daily bonus for taking your first turn for the day. This is going to get interesting. The latest IOS update also has some accessibility fixes as well.
  • This podcast is going through a test bed on anchor.fm. I want to really get off the podcast feed we’re using and have been looking for a replacement for the podcast feeds for some time. Joseph from Illinois mentioned it on passing, someone else mentioned it to me, and I decided to take a look. After a user error which caused firefox to crash, I was able to upload an episode or two, although as part of importing, I had to move my current feed from where it is to Anchor. While I turned off the redirect so they can look at an issue that I am having, I’ll currently upload to both feeds while we figure out the best route to get this to work as importing needs something I can’t do. I also ask for your feedback if you’ve used it, and I hope to hear from users pro and con. Nothing is set in stone, and we’ll see how things go.
  • I cross posted this segment to the White Cane Travel podcast, but how do automated voice announcement systems work across the country? While I’ve experienced issues I’m continuing to address, I’m bringing this up as a talking piece. Please leave your thoughts.
  • Teaching time. I get a text message telling me I’ve won millions. New people are coming on the internet, and so now is a good time to do some reminding.
  • Finally, I give muy contact info.

I’m going to learn how this new platform works with the RSS feed, because I’ve always had issues with the show notes where it comes to links, and how much content I can put. We’ll see how anchor works, and I appreciate everyone’s support! The podcast is over an hour.

Please go to my web site to find contact info, or feel free to contact me through the contact information through the podcast. See you on another edition of the podcast very soon!
