Thousands of developers and programmers headed west to San Jose for Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference this week. And our own BBQ Crew Member Shelly Brisbin was amongst the attendees during the main keynote. Tune in to hear an on-the-spot report from her, as well as, Byron Lee and Scott Davert joining Joe to discuss the big announcements in this wrap up format show.
The Blind Bargains Qast is excited to bring you the new "Game of Words" contest that lets you work with an AIRA Agent to solve puzzles. Tune in, over the next few weeks, to hear if players can claim the Iron Noun for themselves. And congratulations to Krystle who scored an iPhone XR from this week's contest. "Game of Words" is brought to you by Aira, an app that connects people who are blind or have low-vision to highly trained, remotely-located agents for instant access to visual information.
Game of Words is easy to enter! All you need is an Aira account, which you can download at aira.io/app. After the app is installed, you can register for a free account by simply providing your phone number. Once you ve registered, visit aira.io/bbq and fill in your name and phone number in the Game of Words entry form to enter! One contestant will be chosen from the list of entries at the beginning of each week to participate.
Sign up for a chance to be selected to beat the clock and win!
