The Tech Abilities Team kicks off with a Back to School Sale from the Adaptation Store and then some Flick Type battle with the Apple Store. Braille Screen Input is the keyboard choice of many and Disney announces Adaptive Costumes for Halloween. While some of us are Beta testing iOS15, one of us went back to 14 and tells us how. Better foam tips for Air Pod Pros and an inexpensive Loop for the Apple Watch. HBO is getting revamped and accessibility on the iPhone App is going well while HBO on Apple TV is not needing some choices to stick. Accessible gaming is getting some attention and of course, Swordy Quest gets it’s mention once again and again.
Join in this delightful journey through the latest tech tidbits and news from around the world of accessibility, Blindness and life itself. Wow, that went deep, didn’t it?
