The 18th EBU Access Cast!

The 18th EBU Access Cast!

We made some improvements in our podcast for 2020, and that means from now on our podcast supports the chapters Section, which means that if you want to listen something that specifically interests you, you can directly skip to your preferred chapter in your favorite podcast Player. The chapters do not work directly if you are listening the podcast from the web Player, therefore this is another reason why it is better to subscribe to our podcast directly from the podcast players such as Apple podcasts on iPhone or Podcast adict on Android platform.

This month the news section includes,

First Braille tablet shown at CES 2020

Hap2Phone Allows Users to Feel Objects in Photos on Their Touchscreens

OrCam Announces New AI Hearing Device and Handheld AI Reader at CES 2020

W3C Launches an Introduction to Web Accessibility Free Online Course in Cooperation with UNESCO IITE

How to make museums more accessible for disabled people? Ask them

This time we also prepared really cool news for visually impaired musicians:

Building Raspberry Pi Smart Guitar for Blind, Deaf and Mute Musicians

Avid and Berklee College of Music Team Up to Deliver Innovative Accessibility Features for Visually Impaired Music Creators

Musicians who are visually impaired finally can get really excited, because Sibelius will become much more accessible for Jaws, NVDA and Voice over users in the near future. That means that the Level of integration will be much improved for students and musicians who need to utilize Sibelius for composing on the daily bases. For many years visually impaired community was struggling with accessibility of Sibelius which is in today’s world one of the main tools used for composing and arranging, and it looks like that this will finally change.

VIEWS International published their results about the (Intellectual Outputs) project, and Bart gave us more info about it.

For all this and much more, listen to the new Accesscast!
