Tech podcast 293: braille transcription, bounty hunty, and the security of the supply chain

Welcome to podcast 293 of the tech podcast. Braille Transcription, bounty Hunting, and more. Here are the show notes.

Welcome to podcast 293. On this podcast, I continue the braille transcription course coverage by talking about my thoughts on lesson 2’s report. Each report is going to be different, but I talk about moine and how I can understand what they want us to do. Since that taping, I’ve talked to a transcriber, and they also gave me some tips, but definitely getting the braille version of the book I need will be more helpful than the braille formatted files for the note taker. I’ll be working on that. Next, J. Wolfgang G. had a very interesting talk that I had listened to. Bounty Hunters is the talk, and I hope that you enjoy this. Finally, I talk about something that I found of interest, but did it a little bit differently. The third segment is talking about the supply chain. I talk about the articles, but also put it in to daily life. Supply Chain Security is the Whole Enchilada, But Who’s Willing to Pay for It? is the first article and Supply Chain Security 101: An Expert’s View is the 2nd. Both articles are good, and I hope you enjoy the talk. Contact information is at the beginning and the end of the program. Enjoy the program, it runs you 84 minutes. Thanks for listening!

I see the last mixcloud got was podcast 290, so I’ll have to upload 291 to 293. I thought it was going up there. I’ll have to work on that at some point within the next few days.

Technology podcast 292: braille transcription, security researchers turn cybercriminal, drones and w

Welcome to podcast 292 of the technology blog and podcast series. We’ve got a bunch of stuff for you, and i hope you enjoy the program as much as I have bringing it to you. The program is 83 minutes in length.

  • Braille Transcription course and learning UEB. My thoughts on learning UEB as a transcriber, and not just as a reader. I also have some corrections from last podcast.
  • A very interesting article which is entitled When Security Researchers Pose as Cybercrooks, Who Can Tell the Difference? and boy it gives a real true tale that happened to Brian. The article was written on the 2nd of October, and I discuss my thoughts on it.
  • The third segment deals with a Youtube segment, and it is a short video. drones verses the california wildfires is the video and I introduce this one. I honestly don’t remember where I saw it, but I think it is quite interesting.
  • Winamp gets an update. Winamp’s web site has an announcement that I was tipped off to in regards to its development. Not being touched in quite awhile, Winamp 6 is coming soon, but they gave us a functioning 5.8 which I was provided. I’ll let you know how it works. Hopefully, the new company who is doing winamp, keeps the accessibility in place we in the blind community are accustomed to. Wishing and hoping.
  • Finally, Voice Phishing Scams Are Getting More Clever caught my attention. I do talk about something I got by a voice message a few weeks ago, where I’ve not returned the call, and yet, I’m also still here. Do you want to learn more about voice phishing? If you do, please go to the voice phishing page on Wikipedia so you are educated.

Our contact information is at the end of the program as well, as well as briefly at the beginning. Please remember to utalize the info if you have any comments, questions, or concerns. Thanks so much for listening to this program, and I hope you’ll join me for another podcast soon. More great interesting info is coming I thought you’d enjoy too. Thanks for listening!

Winamp 6, due out in 2019, aims to whip more llama ass

Hi folks,

I was tweeted this, and this is interesting. I’m not completely sure what this will mean for the disabled community, but I do hope that the accessibility features continue. But for now, I’m going to publish this, and we’ll see what happens.

“You can listen to the MP3s you may have at home, but also to the cloud, to podcasts…”
