X Becomes Less Accessible & Train Sounds App

Android 15 Talkback Updates

Today on the show Steven and Shaun discuss the latest changes to X (formerly Twitter) which are making it less accessible for blind users. A recent change means any links added to a post will now appear only as an image to users without any clear indication it is a link. For blind users this displays as “Link, image” on screen readers. Elon Musk says he wants to keep more users on the site and avoid people going elsewhere to view content.

Also we hear more of your feedback in particular around the subject of Steven’s recent review of the Kapsys SmartVision3 mobile phone and your thoughts on online dating apps from a blindness perspective.

And listener Lena is back with another fab app demo – this time it is for the Train Sounds app. More details can be found here: (https://apps.apple.com/us/app/train-sounds-relaxing-train-sound-effects/id1187620207)
