Reviewing the QwerkyWriter Mechanical Keyboard: A Little Qwerky, but way Better than Qwerty!

Dive into this podcast to learn about the Qwerky Writer Mechanical Keyboard, a keyboard dedicated to those who want the greatest typewriter feeling under their fingertips at all times. Thanks to arrangements done by Qwerkytoys, what's reviewed here is of the latest QwerkyWriter S model. As you can hear, I could not be more than pleased with the design, build, and overall retro feel of this product. As you also hear, there are some some negatives, such as the right-shift key, but these to me have not detracted from using the device at all. While you can pick up another keyboard claiming a typewriter feel, I truly challenge you in these three qualities produced by the breadth of attention put in by the QwerkyWriter team. * 4 connections at once. That includes a USB machine, and 3 over Bluetooth. At once, yes, you can have 4 devices at the same time and seamlessly switch among them. This can include a mix of mobile, desktop and gaming devices. * Quality of build. These keys now use Che...

Braille Mail: The Sequel to the Prequel

The CBT Team kicks off its new Braille Mail Show, with James and Nelson as your hosts. Keep sending us your emails and messages from social media and we will read or play your feedback on our show. You can contact us via email to cbt@coolblindtech.com or call our new toll free number at 1-855-330-2665 anytime night or day. From: Kevin Barry James, A while back, in one of the regular CBT podcasts, you recommended Google's new $160 wireless ear buds. I recall being surprised at your recommendation as at that time not only had that item not shipped but no reviewers had used it. Now that many reviews are indeed out, and they seem quite negative, I was wondering if you still recommend this item? Also, do you think it is a good idea to recommend something before you or anyone else has had a chance to use it? From: Brennen Kinch Hi I would like to get a Roku for Christmas but I am not sure which one would be the right one to get for Accessibility I listen to a podcast that was done on your...

Braille Mail: The Sequel to the Prequel

Google Home Mini for the First Time

CBT takes a look at the Google Home Mini with updated touch controls. Shortly after launching the Mini, Google disabled all touch controls due to an issue with the touch control on the top of the device constantly being triggered even when not touched. Google recently added some touch controls back to it’s Mini speaker. Here's what you can do: * To play, pause, stop music playback or end a phone call, long-press on either side of the Home Mini. * Stop a timer or alarm with a tap on either side of the device. * Tap the left side to decrease volume. * Tap the right side to increase volume. Touch control on the top of the Home Mini is still missing. You will need to summon Google Assistant using your voice, instead of a long-press on the top of Home Mini as was originally intended. If the long-press actions aren't working for you quite yet, be patient. An update is rolling out to all Google Home Mini devices to add the new touch controls.
