The Year In A.T. 2019: APH FTW


The holiday season brings along gifts, good tidings and of course awards shows. Before we phase out the year that was, and observe the tradition of the MoonPie dropping over Mobile As we do every December, we collected the highlights of the year s Blindness and Low Vision Assistive Technology news and pressed it into a giant scrapbook. BBQ Crew members J.J., Joe, Shelly Brisbin, Scott Davert And Lisa Salinger have some thoughts about what transpired in 2019? And they were silly enough to make wild guesses about what 2020 may hold as well. Check out the show notes for BBQ 204 to read more about what news made our list of emerging trends and big stories.

We'll be honest, and in full disclosure as this company was one of our Convention Coverage Sponsors, we didn t realize just how much APH brought to the news cycle until we started gathering up the download numbers and search results. From the launch of Code Jumper to Braille Blaster, the team in Louisville was making moves in 2019. It's a story that we didn't mention on our wrap up podcast, however, we thought that it needed an honorable mention based upon the list of stories below and the number of downloads we observed from the most popular recordings from our Convention Coverage.
