Blind Bargains Qast 197: The Haunted Pitch Black Audio Hub Show

Ghouls and ghosts will soon be taking to the streets in search of pre-wrapped delicious treats. The BBQ Crew has faced zombies Before and lived to tell the tale. However, will that be the same result for joe this time around? Listen in on an audio demo from him and one from Jesse Anderson's Illegally Sighted channel. Retreat to the safety of J.J. and David Ward as they discuss some Digital Assistant features for Google and Amazon respectively. Most importantly, put on a pair of earbuds or headphones or place your skull between some stereo speakers... Because this one is going to be frighteningly good!

Demonstration: Audio Wizards

We've spoken about the fantastically crafted My True Sound "Audio Wizards" game previously on the show. Joe runs through the tutorials and first level to provide our listeners with some idea of how the game works. Audio Wizards is out for both iOS and Android, if you like what you hear, visit the official website to learn more

Demonstration: Google Home Hub

Google Home, Nest?, Hub's original model featured a smaller display and no camera. And it features Chromevox as the unit's screen reader engine. Hear J.J. as he uses the power of the Google Assistant, and its voice, on this quick demonstration of the unit's controls. Check out this CNET article on the Google Home Hub that details 9 things you can do with the device.

Demonstration: Echo Show And Tell

The "Price Is Right" has pricing games. However, you might be playing a guessing game each time you stand in your kitchen pantry when trying to decide if that can you are holding contains cat food or tuna. David Ward, from the Echo Tips podcast drops by to give us a demonstration on how the new image recognition feature works on some models of the Echo Show. Remember, to keep up with the ever changing face of Amazon Accessibility, visit the official webpage

Demonstration: Pitch Black

This one would normally land in the "Crowd Funding Of The Week" section of the news if this was a traditional format kind of episode. Jesse Anderson laid his hands upon the keyboard to provide a quick look at a new audio game that is seeking funding for a pending release next year. "Pitch Black: The 'AAA' Audio Game" is an immersive experience that is slated to be released on PC, Mac, iOS and Android. The full version of the demo came from Jesse's YouTube channel and we thank him for his permission to use a shortened version of it in this episode. You can nab a copy of the demo, fund the project or just keep up with the status of Pitch Black by visiting the official Kickstarter page

Tune in next week to see if anyone in this show has been spirited away across the river Styx by an audio engineer. That's our Halloween way of saying that this show would not be possible without the tremendous talents of Patrick and his devilish ways of bringing this audio to life. Trick or audio treat everyone!
