Convention Coverage & Menus4All App

Android 15 Talkback Updates

Today on the show, Steven and Shaun discuss more of the news coming out from the NFB and ACB conventions this week. They chat about the new features announced by Vispero that will be included in the new JAWS 2024 screen reader software, including camera view information, meaning JAWS can now give you important info about your camera status, whether you are centred on the screen and what’s in the shot, as well as the new Braille split screen feature that lets you halve your display to see two applications at the same time.

Also, Michael Babcock sends in more of his reports from the ACB convention in Chicago. He talks to the teams from the popular OKO app, Guide Dogs for the Blind in the U.S. and National Library Service in the U.S.

Our special guest today is Stephanie Jones, who is the VP of Marketing for Menus4All, an app designed to make it easier for people who are blind to find accessible menus at various restaurants across the U.S. and Canada. Stephanie talks about the genesis of the app and how it has developed. More details here: https://www.menus4all.com/
