Talking Tech for Jan 10 2016

 

In this weeks show, I spend most of the show talking about my experiences using the Xbox One game console from Microsoft with the builtin screen reader Narrator.

In the next week or so, I will be producing a podcast on using the Xbox and will post it on my feed at:

From Smart Canes to Wheel Chairs from Tech Crunch:

 

The idea of having a cane that gives your GPs location, and if you have a fall or need help, you can get the cane to text or email an identified person for assistance.

Why Accessibility Matters To Tech Leaders: talk presented at CES 2017:

 

I think it was great that accessibility overall got a good showing at CES 2017, and this panel talk just highlighted why accessibility is important for everyone.

Interesting use of Smart Glass’s linked up to a smart phone to give live video/audio assistance to the user, already available, and is planned based: i.e. how many times you use the service.

 

Aira uses Smart Glass’s to assist the Vision Impaired at presented at CES 2017 from Engadget.
