And learns the latest about his products and services. Second, Jesse Anderson
Returns to talk about accessible games and highlights from the Electronic Entertainment Expo. And J.J. stops by with a long time listener s tip suggestion.
WWDC has arrived and that means by decree of Podcast Law we must dissect it for your amusement. Along for the ride is Buddy Brannan
And Scott Davert
who give their thoughts about what the fall holds for Apple fans. Steve Clower
provides us an Apple-related tip; the news has a major story and the Last Word contains a YouTube clip like no other. Basically, this is BBQ by the numbers. Therefore, fire up those iPod Shuffles and iPad minis, it is mostly Apple for episode 148.
Two interviews, news and a tip all under an hour. We aren t turning over a new leaf. We re just saving it all up for WWDC next week. We have Amit Pitaru And Nicole Bleuel from Google to talk about an awesome and accessible morse code keyboard. Joseph Lee joins us to talk about NVDACon which is happening this weekend. Hot summer air, without an air conditioner, can make for some quick podcasts by the way.
The BBQ Crew is back with another fabulous interview from Google i/o that places your virtual focus squarely on Android P and TalkBack. The news section is back with a vengeance, the Last Word stays true to the topics that have come to define the segment and Sound Off sports a fascinating status update from an infamous show note commenter. I got a feelin that tonight is going to be a good show. A good, good show.
J.J. is back from Google i/o with not one, but two, interviews from the event. Joe has a tasty tip in store, the Last Word is full of audio goodness and we have a lively discussion in the news section. Find that wireless earbud that fell between the couch cushions as we re about to delve into episode 145.
Blind Bargains Qast 144: Oreo Praline Puff Pastry
Joe is back from MSU and he could not wait to talk to a BBQ Crew member with the letter J in his name. Since J.J. was at Google I/O this week, Joe reached out to Jamie Pauls for assistance in the unpacking of both Microsoft and Google Keynotes. J.J. pops in with a short live report from the bird-filled Google Keynote amphitheater, we have a tip plus an Android name themed Last Word . This one has a ton of info. So you may want to hit pause and pace yourselves accordingly.
Joe is off teaching some unsuspecting students about technology in Mississippi so Shelly Brisbin, who this week is actually playing the part of herself, steps in. And since
J.J. thought it would be a good week to talk all about the latest updates to Narrator. We've got iOS fans covered with a handy tip, and talk about food in both the Last Word and Sound Off.

Canada isn't just a great place to get maple syrup and poutine, no fellow listeners, it turns out it is a wonderful place where accessibility is on the rise in new and exciting ways. This week Joe sits down with David lepofsky to talk about many Canadian things that are not hockey or that 55 yard line thing they have for football. J.J. has a virtual tip, "Last Word" gets crunchy and "Sound Off" features an email that could have been in the news section.

Protect and increase the life of your expensive electronic devices with one of these new magnetic cables! As most of you know one of the weakest links on any device which is most susceptible to damage due to wear and tear is the charging port. Well, we now have a great solution for this problem! It's a magnetic cable! Think of a regular cable, on one end is the plug one inserts into a USB port. The other end has the plug which is inserted into the device's charging port. That plug which goes into the charging port connects to the rest of the cable magnetically so when done charging one just slides the cable part away while leaving the tiny plug inserted inside the charging port. As one never has to remove and reinsert it there's no more stress put on that charging port avoiding any damage to it! The part that's exposed is less than 0.08 inches and doesn't even interfere with the very snug fit of any case!

I am selling a Galaxy ID-Mate almost brand new. Unit has been updated to latest firmware and database and 300 new blank labels are included. I am asking $900 but would listen to offers...
I am relisting 3 laptops I have at reduced prices.
First, I am selling a brand new Dell XPS13 thin and light notebook. This is a 13 inch laptop with an aluminum enclosure with a 512 GB PCIE NVME SSD. NVME drives are up to 6 times faster than a traditional sata solid state drive. This machine has 8 gb of ram as well as an I7 7560U quad core processor. I'm asking $950 but reasonable offers will be considered. This is a very powerful machine.
Second, I am selling a Panasonic Toughbook CFC1. This machine is from 2012 and has an I5 520M, a 320 gb hard drive and 2 gb of ram. The ram can be upgraded and the hard drive can be replaced with a solid state drive for improved performance. The CFC1 is a 12 inch business rugged machine with 2 removable batteries and an easily accessible slide out caddie for the hard drive. This is a tablet pc, so the screen can be inverted and closed to be used as a tablet. The rubber strap on the back enables you to hold the machine as a tablet and the included stylus will be of some value to a sighted person I'm guessing. This machine is in excellent condition with no cosmetic defects and is a great little business machine with a durable magnesium chassis. I am asking $250.
The last machine I have for sale is a brand new 15.6 inch Dell inspiron 5577 gaming rig. This gaming rig comes equipped with an I7 7700HQ a very fast chip, 16 gb of memory, 512 gb PCIE NVME solid state drive, and an Nvidia GTX1050 GPU. The machine has a rubberized chassis and a touch pad similar to that of the macbook pro and the added benefit of a number pad. I am asking $800 for this machine. All prices include shipping. I ship USPS priority for the quickest delivery only 2 days. I accept payment via paypal. Please contact me if you have any questions. These machines do not come with CD drives.
Hi looking for an actilino Braille display. I’m willing to make payments. Please let me know thanks.
We have all experienced a time when there is a minor emergency, whether with a child or guide dog, or anybody else for that matter. We rush to our first aid kit and begin the guessing game of what is what. Yeah we all have iPhones and barcode readers, but in a time of need, why not have everything readily available so you can find what you need quickly and with ease.
At D&B Accessibility, we strive for preparing you properly for a minor emergency. Whether its a scrape, burn, or another minor injury, we want you to be prepared.
As blind business owners, we have a passion for creating accessibility because we know from experience, even if it is the smallest items, it can make a world of difference. That is why we have created braille labeled first aid kits. With over fifty items, all marked in braille, you are sure to find what you need when you need it.
