Express: Conventions Special

Today on the show, Steven and Shaun are joined by Michael Babcock and Damshe Thomas, from AT Guys, to talk about their experiences of both the NFB and ACB conventions they visited this week.

We also discuss some of the tech they got hands-on with, including the new Orbit Speak from Orbit Research; and find out about some of the interesting companies displaying their wares, including Blind Girl Designs and IRIE-AT. Michael also got the chance to catch up with Sam from the popular YouTube channel The Blind Life, and found out how Sam makes the channel possible.

Plus, Grace Scoffield joins us for a review of the week’s news in accessible tech. Focused mainly on the big announcements from the conventions, Grace also looks at the latest news from Twitter and the emerging rival called Threads from Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram.
