Apple Watch Saves Blind Man’s Life

Hi all, looks like the Apple Watch has proven to be a really great piece of assistive technology for the blind. And I couldn’t agree more!!

Nano’s Become Accessible

First a little about me.  I am visually impaired and work in the Assistive Technology field.  When I heard that the new iPod Nano was going to have spoken menus I almost fell out of my chair.  This is the one feature that has eluded blind and visually impaired iPod users since the beginning of the line resulting in hacking the iPod to put a Linux distro on it that does this same thing.  As a visually impaired Mac user, I say thank you to Apple for making this monumental step in what I consider to be the right direction.  You can read a great article on TUAW about this ne feature here if you are interested.  Me I am very happy about this.  I would be really, really happy if they rolled this feature out to all iPods, and the iPhone via the new 2.1 firmware release on Friday.

iPhone G3 Love

I have returned from a moritorium on posting due to work and school with a shoutout to Apple for blessing us Canadians with the iPhone 3G.  What an amazing device.  Once I have a week of use in on the device I will post my thoughts and a list of my favorite apps.

I am glad to report that someone has finally come up with a plugin for iphoto that I will use on a regular basis. If you are like me and convey images of birthdays and holiday to family via gmail, then this is the plugin for you! You can find the plugin here. Enjoy!

The new Blackberry Pearl is the coolest phone I have seem yet, packed with features, and a 1.3 megapixel camera with a flash it is amazing! Check it out here for more details.
