#ACB18 Audio: Local Transcription For Any Locale Thanks To The Midwestern Braille Volunteers

One of the best things about covering each year s ACB Exhibit Hall for the BBQ Crew comes up when we get a chance to meet the local organizations that support the host city and state. J.J. had a moment to speak with Loretta Bryant, Executive Director of Midwestern Braille Volunteers, about some of the services they provided for the convention site. He also learned about the greeting cards that are available and how others may use the Braille transcription services they offer. To learn more about their services, visit the Midwestern Braille Volunteers website.

Our 2018 summer convention coverage is sponsored by Google.

This week we're teaming up with our friends on the Google Accessibility team to talk about accessibility features within products like Android, Chrome OS, G Suite, Google Home, Assistant and more! Be sure to listen to our podcast series where we get the inside scoop, including the upcoming launch of Chat support and a 24 hour response time for the Disability Support team on July 9th.

The Google Accessibility team is also inviting everyone to participate in user research studies, where you can help shape the future of accessible products and features -- and get rewarded for it. Select here to sign up to participate and learn more at
