iOS Access for All Update Released

Posted in Access and Disability, Announcements, General Store, and New Media and Tech

I’m thrilled to announce that the new edition of my book, iOS Access for All, is ready and waiting for you right here. There you’ll find buy links, the table of contents, and many more words you can read. Get the ePub for $20. I’m really proud of this one, and there’s a bit more new material this time than last. That’s partly due to Apple’s interface changes, and partly because I added depth to several…

Less Than or Equal Guest Shot: My Beef with Tech Journalism

Posted in Access and Disability, Announcements, and Pods and Presos

I was honored to join Aleen Sims on episode #89 of her podcast, Less Than or Equal. It’s a great show, where you will meet a wide range of people, many of whom are not among the usual suspects of podcast guests (present company excepted, I guess.) We talked about the reasons accessibility is often invisible in the mainstream tech world, and why I get grumpy when I read (or don’t read) about accessibility in…

One Feed to Rule Them All

Posted in Announcements, and Pods and Presos

You, dear reader, are used to seeing plugs for my podcast appearances here. That is a somewhat boring way to use a perfectly good blog, but I do like to get the word out, and I sometimes forget to post. I’m trying a new thing: a meter feed of podcasts on which I appear. You can subscribe to the feed, or to individual shows, which would be the more normal way to consume the noise…

November is “Podcast Every Single Day” Month

Posted in Announcements, and Pods and Presos

Time for another podcast appearance update. I’ve been doing a lot of recording. Maccesibility Roundtable covers iWork, Apple earnings, Apple TV, and new Apple hardware and software, in recent episodes. This week, I joined the Clockwise crew for a bit of a chat about the iPad Pro, Mac App Store glitches, and the demise of RDio. Last but not least, I have been doing a little project in celebration of NaPodPoMo. Or as I like to call…

Hey, I’m Writing for AccessWorld

Posted in Access and Disability, Announcements, and New Media and Tech

I’m very excited to let you know that I’ve signed on as a contributor to the American Foundation for the Blind’s highly-regarded technology magazine, AccessWorld. My beats include tech products for low-vision users, and mobile stuff for both Android and iOS. My first piece is a review of the Revolution 22’, a hybrid consisting of a video magnifier and an Android tablet. It’s so much fun to be doing product reviews again!

Back in the Saddle: Check Out My New Podcast

Posted in Access and Disability, Announcements, New Media and Tech, and Pods and Presos

Lately, I’ve been rediscovering my love of podcasting. For those of you who don’t know, and that includes a surprising number of friends and colleagues, I produced my first podcast in 2004, and continued to make shows on the regular for the better part of the next nine years. I have guested on many podcasts, and was active in the first wave podcasting community; the enthusiasts and semi-pros who congregated at the first few New…
