Episode 100: Jaws For Kiosks, Amazon Robots & AR Glasses
“Double Tap Canada reaches it’s 100th episode this week so we’d like to say a massive thank you to the listeners and everyone who supports the show.
Joining the Double Tap team this week we have Larry Lewis from the Paciello Group. He tells us of the work they are doing on making kiosks accessible to the visually impaired. Touchscreen kiosks are becoming more and more popular and you will find them in banks, hospitals and restaurants. However, currently they are virtually impossible to use if you are visually impaired. Larry explains how a specialized version of Jaws could be the answer.
It’s then on to the news, with Amazon recently announcing an event on September 25th, just what do we expect to see unveiled. And why would a Amazon Echo robot mean Shaun gets a divorce? Also, does some discovered code in beta software from Apple mean that we will finally get the Apple AR glasses? And why should we care?
Finally, it’s on to listener feedback. With comments on using tech in public and a question on how to forward text messages in iOS.”
