Let’s craft a kingdom

I take a look at crafting kingdom an iOs game which is a fun game to play just to play. It does have some accessibility issues and focus issues with voiceover but the developer is hard at work trying their best to fix the issues. I really am loving the game.

blog post: Why I’m a federationist

People often ask me why I belong to the national federation of the blind. I could give the generic minute message we have, but I believe our own words speak loudly as well. Here’s my answer to the question.

#why I belong to the NFB.

Why am I a federationist?? I’m a big believer in technology. I believe technology has and will continue to help the blind, however it costs a lot. A simple machine for embossing (that is brailing from a computer on to paper) cost about 5-50 grand, and that’s new. A braille display (a contraption that turns computer screen output into braille right a way for a user) cost between 500 to 5000 dollars. This must stop. I’m aware most of us are buying our stuff through services for the blind in what ever state/country you live, however that gives companies no excuse to charge an arm and leg for the technology. I know companies need to make a profit, I have 2 small businesses so I get it, however this is wrong on so many levels. As a federationist I feel that by making my and others’ voices heard we can stop this treatment of the blind and disabled.

Let’s race in an out of control mine cart

For some reason my audio would not let the voice through I dunno why, but I take a look at mine racer an audio game for mac os. I had a bit of a problem when it came to the game itself but I have emailed the developer and hopefully they will look into it. This is a fun fun game and I hope to do an actual play through one day.

Let’s play with reverb. No, not sound this time.

I take a look at [reverb](https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/reverb-for-amazon-alexa/id1144695621?mt=8) an iOs app that will let you use most of what alexa has to offer, except for music. The app is somewhat easy to use but I had trouble in the alexa app itself toward the end of the podcast.

Enjoy and feel free to leave feedback.

addendum to threema: sharing and accessing non mp3 files

Having trouble opening that file a user sent you? Here is 1 of probably many solutions. I actually want to hear more of them as this might be more common than we think.

Join me for this episode where I present only 1 of as stated many solutions to this issue.

Let’s talk with threema: a high quality but low cost voice and texting app

I go over threema a low cost, high quality app for iOs and android.. Thanks to all who helped me in this review. All of you rock and you know who you are.

#what is this?
Threema is a low cost high quality chat app for text, voice, media, photos video etc. It is 100 percent accessible with voiceover, and the developers are very good with feedback. I have spoken with them regarding some design changes and they seem as though they want to do said changes.

blog post: a tribute to my guide dog gatsby

When I first received Gatsby in 2004 I had no idea she would touch my life and leave this indelible mark on my heart. She helped me gain confidence in my travels, she would amuse me with her antics and a lot more. Gatsby even helped my brother, Rakan, place in a Reflections contest in 2005. So many stories and memorable moments.
You’re probably wondering why I’m sharing this.
Today, February 1st, 2017, my lovely Gatsby journeyed over the rainbow. She wwill be greatly missed. She brought so much into my life as well as my family’s. Her sweet energy permeated throughout the entire household. Her Unconditional love, uncanny ability to comfort me when I would think all is lost. Of course tears as she chewed up my braille blocks I worked so hard on many years ago. She takes away a piece of my heart. An empty spot sits in her honor. She will be missed by not just myself but, by others whose lives she’s touched. Farewell my Sweet Gatsby๐Ÿ’œ

The Great Gatsby, born August 8, 2002. Passed February 1, 2017.
