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.

Feedback is more than welcome. Leave it in the disqus frame etc.

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.

Any comments, leave them in the disqus frame.

a look at the apple watch work out appp

I look at the apple watch workout app. I’m using watch os 3 in this case. I take you through the main interface and start a workout. I also take you through what happens when I end a workout. I do not take you through said workout.

All comments and questions may be addressed in the comments frame located in the post.

Looking at roger: a wonderful sounding ptt app

I take a look at roger an iOs app. I go over the settings, then have some fun with amazon Alexa. Next, I show how to transmit using two ways and show how to hide notifications and even mute them. I can’t go over everything as there’s a lot to this simple little app. I do recommend you give the developers some love via their twitter.

All comments can go in the disqus frame. I do respond to them in public.

And addendum to audio game hub

I go over the update to [a href=”https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/audio-game-hub/id1101972684?mt=8″audio game hub for iOs />a>
Again. This is a suite of fun time waisting games you can use while waiting for a bus or what not. I love the way these games were designed, and yes high scoring now works. Remember any feedback can go on the disqus form.

looking at what’s app for mac os: an accessibility epic fail

Note: if you would like to watch the youtube demo, feel free to do so by following the prompts at the bottom of this page.

I go over what’s app for mac os or try to anyway. I could not get the QR code scanned. I fully expected this to be a native app not some app where it needs the phone to be used. I would not mind entering a from my phone into the app, or loging in with facebook.

This to me is a big oversite by what’s app If we could find a way to contact the developers that would be nice. Please leave a comment in the disqus frame with more info. Also please feel free to show what’s app the video . I don’t care for the fact that what’s app made this look like their what’s app web interface. In fact that’s what it says in the title.

Following is a screenshot of said window.

Screenshot of the what's app for web window before the QR code  is scanned. Notice it looks a lot like the what's app web website, not a customised app.

I really hope we can get a customised interface. What if for example you did not have a phone? You could then log on to what’s app for mac or windows via facebook.

Below you will find the video on youtube.

Let’s race some horses

I should add that before I begin the show notes, I said the name of the app wrong. Look in the show notes for more info about what the app is called. My appoligies to all who tune in.

I go over blindfold horserace another game in the blindfold series. This is a fun filled, fast paced game that is very exciting to play. The developers really did a good job on this game and I encourage you to try it out.

blog post; a way to test your mac for free

When I came across the following article on lifehacker, on speedster I was a bit surprised that someone came up with this app. I’m testing this for accessibility. As most of you know who listen to the podcast or read the blog, I’m totally blind and use a screen reader called voiceover. Voiceover ships with osx 10.4 and above and can be accessed with command f5. Many apps are accessible with voiceover and while some are not, some of the devs I’ve spoken to have worked hard to make the apps accessible and easy to navigate.

main interface of speedster

When you first navigate the program you are presented with a start test and a number of tests remaining. There is an in app purchase that enables you to remove this limit. the following is a screenshot of the speedster window. Notice the start test button that is prominent.

After the start test button is opened, you are presented with a web view of the start test screen. This might appear to be inaccessible to voiceover users, but if you quit interacting with that and go right, you will notice the results. Here are mine.results of the test. Notice the download and upload speed which  in this example is 35 Mbps by 5 Mbps.

exit

Over all the app is very usable with voiceover and free. You only need test your speed maybe once a day or so. I hope you enjoy this app. Feel free to leave a comment and discuss this in the forums as well. I love the way this app is simple to use and I hope you mac users will make use of this tool.
