The Team virtually gathered into the studio and put their heads virtually together to come up with another That Blind Tech Show. We are happy to bring you the latest news and happenings from around the accessible tech world, blindness related news and some community happenings that absolutely matter.
Ever try to get those photos and videos out of the long grip of Facebook? Now you can transfer them to Google Photos. Check out the steps below and in the show.
How about OCRs? Have you stayed on top of the updates? Seems like Envision AI has notched a few new updates and is working well, swell and seems worth the bill. SuperSense AI is the new kid on the block and for a light-weight app, it comes out fighting. Prizmo is really hitting the Share Sheet and it seems like VoiceDream Scanner could use a lesson on getting some Actions in the Share Sheet.
Google Suites is filling the needs of the everyday worker and Serina explains her daily uses and new discoveries.
Ed hits the News and about social distancing, Jeff is still working on the camper as we don’t expect to see room service any time soon.
How accessible is the Corona Virus updates in your state? We talk access, lock-down, working from home and is this all actually helping the blind community as more and more on-line access is generating week by week?
Well, we talk and talk and that is what we do here, share our experiences, the news, and try to make it a bit entertaining.
So thank you for taking the time and joining us in this episode. We appreciate you and feel free to contact us and give us feedback, suggestions and just say hello.
