Roku Audio Guide Demo Cast

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

Roku added a spoken interface to its video streaming devices. This is good news for blind and print-disabled folks who like the idea of an inexpensive, easy-to-use, full-featured streamer. In this audio demo, I roll through the Audio Guide interface, and show you where it shines, and where it fails. If you have feedback or questions after listening, please hit me up on Twitter at @shelly. Direct Download Link

My Podcast Smorgasbord

Posted in Pods and Presos

In the course of promoting my book, iOS Access for All, I’ve been invited onto several podcasts. For the most part, these are new opportunities for me, though a few invites came from old friends. I’ll link you to all the shows, but I want to give you reasons to listen to specific ones, since they’re so different. Also, if you just can’t get enough of my yammering, subscribe to the All Shelly, All The…

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…

Apple Makes Stuff, I Talk About It

Posted in Pods and Presos

My friends at Apple, for I must surely call any organization that has taken so much of my money in exchanged for shiny objects a friend, announced a lot of new shiny objects this week. And so, I podcasted about them on my own show, on a show where I’m a regular, and as a guest on someone else’s show.  Minimum show length? 1 hour. That’s the one I produced and edited. You’re welcome! But…

This Week in Podcasts

Posted in Pods and Presos

Dan Moren and Jason Snell were kind enough to invite me back on the Clockwise podcast for episode #102. Most of today’s topics come down to Apple in the entertainment realm. I also got to plug The Parallel to a new audience. Instead of recording the Maccessibility Roundtable as usual tomorrow, we will do a show immediately after Tim Cook and company reveal their secrets, next Wednesday. So join us on the stream, and on Twitter with…

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…
