#iAcast 84 – Dealing With Changes In Technology

On this episode of the #iACast, Michael, Aleeha, Scott, Aaron, and Jason discuss the importance of dealing with and adapting to changes in technology. We also discuss Apple and Microsoft Teaming up to help create new standards for Braille Displays, and the release of iOS 11.4 with AirPlay 2. Our featured ad is an app called Current City. This app makes it much easier to keep track of different cities you may pass through on your travels. Current City will be available on the iOS App Store soon. If you wish to beta test Current City, send an email to feedback@iaccessibility.net. Please note that you will need the Test Flight app installed on your device to test beta applications. Allison’s pick for the week is Voice Dream Reader, a really great iOS app for reading books and other types of documents. Aaron’s pick is the Sunu Band.The Sunu Band is a smart-band enabling you to travel with confidence. Using sonar, the band will detect objects up to 16 feet (5.5 meters) away. Hhaptic vibrations indicate your distance from obstacles. Use the promo code lp to save 10% when you order. Scott’s pick is the Speedtest app by Ookla.
