Startup Disrupter Robinhood Makes their iOS Stock Trading App Accessible


by J.J. Meddaugh

Robinhood is a mobile app that is already disrupting the financial services industry by offering stock trading without service fees. Now, they're one of the first companies to make their trading app accessible to VoiceOver users.

"Not surprisingly, the financial industry has historically been a bad actor when it comes to disability compatible products, and we wanted to change this," Robinhood wrote in a recent blog post. The company partnered with the San Francisco Lighthouse to implement the changes which include providing access to account sign-up, the trading interface, and audible financial graphs.

The new features were released in celebration of Global Accessibility awareness Day, which was held this year on May 19. Robinhood also offers versions for Apple Watch and Android, though we are unable to verify if these also include accessibility features at this time.

The Perkins School for the Blind and Raizlabs Aim to Solve the Last Inch Problem with GPS


by J.J. Meddaugh

Your GPS may tell you that there is a bus stop nearby, but how do you know you're actually standing at the stop and not at a street sign 25 feet away? Thanks to a $750,000 grant from Google, the Perkins School for the Blind has partnered with app developer Raizlabs in an effort to solve this problem.

It's a situation that Raizlabs' Nick Bonatsakis, who is also legally blind, can relate to as he explains in an interview with Boston's WBUR. “I was just walking around in circles,” he recalls. “And had I had something where somebody just said, ‘Look, you know, the entrance to this place is past this mailbox and before this entrance to this other shop,’ that would have been immensely helpful.”

Perkins and Raizlabs aim to offer an app which will provide clues to a traveler in these situations. The app may give clues such as a nearby step, doorway, or grass which could help in someone locating a location like a bus stop in a contextual manner. Those familiar with a location will enter these clues into a database, which will then be available to users of the forthcoming app.

The Perkins School for the Blind was awarded the grant from the Google Impact Challenge: Disabilities program which awarded $20 million in grants to 29 recipients.

The app itself is expected to be released early in 2017.

We're happy to announce we now carry for a limited time only the Nexus 5 LG Touchscreen Smartphone with the latest most accessible version of Android, on sale for just $189.99: http://www.talkingmp3players.com/-Nexus-5-LG-D820-Google-60-Android-Phone_p_51.html This is a great phone, this is the phone that my whole family uses and I highly recommend this one for Android users. The Nexus 5 has got to be the fastest Android phone I've used. I had been using a cheaper lower end phone and borrowed my wife's Nexus 5 and was promptly blown away by the difference in how fast it responded. I was also pleased to find that the OK Google phrase worked without a hitch with TalkBack running as this was impossible with the phone I had been using. I'm now able to use OK Google to ask it questions and to launch applications etc just by speaking to it. It has an 8 mp camera so it works well with OCR apps! This is an Accessible touchscreen unlocked Phone enabled with TalkBack, refurbished to new excellent condition in premium OEM packaging with 1 year warranty ending May 18 2017. It runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow which is the latest and most accessible version. 16GB of memory and 2 GB RAM, 4G LTE. It has NFC which can be used with NFC tags and free apps to identify pill bottles, clothing etc. It doesn't have a micro SD slot, however we have found the storage to be sufficient, it will hold a bit under 4000 songs and you can always use Dropbox or Google Drive which provides you with 15GB of storage space for free. The phone will be set up to be accessible out of the box with accessibility short cut to enable you to turn it on yourself. There are many choice apps you can install from Playstore such as Audible, Bard, Kindle, Nearby Explorer, KNFB Reader, Word Processors etc. Adding apps can easily be done from your computer or phone and we can offer assistance with this if needed by phone or email. We can customize it for you upon your request but will need your Gmail account and a password to it which you can change later or to set up a gmail account for you if you don't have one. Unlocked! It can be used with any GSM network company or prepaid service such as AT & T, T-Mobile, Simple Mobile, Net-10, Cricket, T-Mobile prepaid, Straight Talk and many others. We are T-Mobile, Simple Mobile & Net-10 providers so you may add these in the combo box below the product or give us a call.

Apple MacBook Air 2011 13-inch 1.7 GHz Core i5 4 GB Ram 128 GB SSD for $600

This is a used MacBook Air 13-inch laptop from Mid-2011. Specs are in the headline. It comes with it's original AC adapter that was included with the unit. It has been downgraded to Mac OS X v10.7 Lion, but you can upgrade it to the latest version. It has also been completely reformatted (none of my personal data and other files are on here, so it's like getting a new MacBook Air). This MacBook Air is in near perfect working condition. The only problems with this laptop are the fingerprints on the keyboard (but that's to be expected on a used system) and the internal microphone (if you need to use programs like Skype or any program that records audio, you need to use external mics).

Juliet Pro60 needs solenoid repair $700

Slightly used Juliet Pro 60 in very good cosmetic condition. No idea why the solenoid problem has happened since it has always been handled carefully. These are very good embossers capable of handling any braille printing you'd need. Have RMA number from the nice folks at Enabling Technologies. Can discuss shipping...I might even be willing to cover shipping! Make me an offer since even with the repair cost, you get this great device for half the price of a new one.

64 gb iPad Mini 3 WiFi with touch ID, new condition, box - $350

This is the 7.9 inch iPad mini. It features 64 gb of memory, WiFi connectivity, the touch ID fingerprint reader, stereo speakers, front and back cameras, and the A7 processor. Comes with original box, an apple lightning cable and wall charger, and a screen protector already installed. Great condition and rarely used. I accept payments via payPal. $350 which includes up to $10 of shipping costs. Feel free to e-mail me with any questions. My reason for selling: I recently purchased an iPhone 6S 128gb, which is both faster and larger in memory than the iPad. I find I'm just not using it enough anymore.
