let’s use an xbox with narrator, shall we?

In this episode we take a look at the Xbox and narrator, the screen reader that ships with narrator. To activate narrator on the xbox you can either

  • go to settings, ease of access, narrator or
  • hold down the home button until the controller vibrates then hit the start button. And then go left to yes, or maybe it’s right? And hit a to confirm

I love the accessibility of the unit and there is so so much you can do with narrator and the xbox. Now, if only developers of games would work to make the games more accessible for the visually impaired as fighting games are fun, however some of want to play RPG games and go through menus etc. Let’s get the word out there folks.

let’s scan some bar codes with a galaxy

I take a look at he ID Mate Galaxy by Envision America. This is a machine that will read bar codes of items you either buy or custom bar codes you affix to items yourself. I forgot to go over that, but maybe in another podcast I can if all of you want.

I had a bit of trouble with uploading a recording, however and I edited the network out of the podcast, but over all I hope the listener gets a feel for how the product works.

let’s view changes in android apps using an easier interface

In this episode we take a look at changes an app that will le tyou view the change log for any app you have on your android phone. There are some minor issues

  1. Tapping the change log for getting rid of the change log for changes itself is not obvious.
  2. There is an unlabeled checkbox when you enter a change log for an app you have on your device.

Over all the app is pretty well designed and very useful if you want to just view change logs for apps or even open the app itself.

For feedback regarding any episode please contact us. We’ll do our best to answer promptly.

I take a look at blindo an android app that allows you to share and import talkback labels for a lot of apps. The list is growing every day so take a look

##what’s in the podcast
I take a look at the following items

  1. Rating an app. The user can rate apps based on the accessibility of talkback and shine plus
  2. Importing labels into talkback. The user can import custom label packages using the buttons provided. I did swarm as an example.
  3. Exporting labels into blindo. This is not as intuitive as it should be but it can be done.
