How to turn on the various Mac OS Accessibility options before the login prompt

In this demo, I show you how to select the various Mac OS accessibility options so that you can use your preferred access options at the Login Prompt. Note - this demo was done on the current beta of Mac OS Catalina at the time of recording Feb 18 2020. As I said in the demo, I havne't looked at the Login options for quite a while, it used to be just VoiceOver, but now it is all the Accessibility options.

Demo of splitting system sound and VoiceOver speech on the Mac

In this demo, I show you how to split VoiceOver Speech away from System Sound so that if your recording you don't get VoiceOver being part of the recording. Another situation could be, if your listening to a Zoom Webinar for example, you can more easally take notes when you have separate sound sources between the webinar and you listening to VoiceOver.

Demo of another document stand for OCR, video conferencing, video magnification apps etc

After I did my Scanjig demo, I learned that apparently they were no longer being produced, so I am assuming because I was able to buy mine through Amazon, that the units were sitting in a warehouse somewhere and being sold whilst stocks last as it were. Consequently, I thought I should do a demo of a current stand which is still being produced: the Belkin portable Tablet Stage Stand which you can use with your iPhone, iPad etc via apps for OcR, video magnification, Zoom conferencing or what ever you would like to use a great solid portable fold up stand for. In the demo, I do refer to the Belkin Portable as the Belkin mini as this is what a lot of people refer to it as: i.e. in relation to the full size Belkin Tablet Stage Stand which I mention in the demo. https://www.belkin.com/us/p/p-b2b118/

Chat and demo of the Canute - 9 line by 40 cell Braille Reader - from a users perspective (transcript in show notes)

Canute Chat and demo. D - Hi Eden, and welcome to the podcast to talk and demo the Canute. E - Thanks David. The Canute is basically a 9 line by 40 cell Braille reader. It has very crisp Braille. D - have you ever felt the Orbit Reader 20 Braille? E - Yes. This Braille is better. D - How big is the actual unit? 9 lines of Braille sounds quite large. E - a bit wider than a braille book, depth almost like a cassette player, and is an inch or so high. The Braille lines are spaced a bit further apart like on a Braille Page, but not too much, you can get used to it. I was concerned about the refresh rate for the 9 lines which takes about 10 seconds, but am quite used to this now. D - What are the controls on the unit? E - so a bit of a description. On the front of the unit, there are 3 buttons from left to right they are Back, Menu, and Forward with their associated labels on the top face of the unit in Braille. On the right hand side, the power chord is wright next to the Power button (...

First flight with the Tello Edu Drone.

This is the first demo of flying the Tello Edu Drone using Swift Playgrounds, the Tello Space Template, and VoiceOver. As with my Dash Robot series, the Tello apps remain inaccessible to VoiceOver users, hence Swift Playgrounds. Note - Swift Playgrounds only runs on an iPad. In this initial demo, I am already inside the Tello Space Template going through the first instruction set, you download the template inside Swift Playgrounds and its free. Enjoy the demo, more to come!!!!

My 4 custom VoiceOver gestures in iOS 13

In this demo, I show you how easy it is to customise your own VoiceOver gestures in iOS 13. In the demo, to start off with when I am showing you my custom gestures, my Home button function is already set to 2 finger swipe left to save a bit of time whilst I go through the other 3 custom VoiceOver gestures.

Demo of using the Dolphin Guide Connect Windows 10 software with the Dolphin Remote Control

In this demo, I show you how easy it is to navigate the menu driven self voicing Guide Connect software from Dolphin Systems using a physical Remote Control. This software is excellent for folks who don't want the complexity of learning the computer, application, and screen reader, all they need to know is how to navigate and use Guide Connects simple menu driven structure. Besides using the Remote Control, you can also use a mouse, touch screen (such as a Surface Pro) or the keyboard or any combination of the whole lot grin. Enjoy

Demo of the Scanjig document stand for Optical Character Recognition (OCR) apps running on a Smart Phone or Tablet

I know the Scanjig has been around for quite a while, but this is the first time I've played with one in Australia. Allows papers to be scanned via portrait mode or when tilted, allows books to be also scanned (not recommended for tablets in this mode). About the size and thickness of an oldish scanner (eg Canon LIDE 200), made of white plastic, easy to assemble, and fits comfortably in a computer bag. I used the Scanjig with my iPhone via the Seeing AI app with the Document Channel, and once placed on the stand, started the process of scanning straightaway once it was in the correct position (as I explain in the demo). I purchased this Scanjig from Amazon for about $75 US. For more info and a manual, you can go to: http://www.scanjig.com

Tech that David uses for work - the Magic List smile

A year or so ago I did a podcast on my Connected Home which I will most likely update this year. However, to cover the other side of my life (work), this is the magic list. --- I often get asked what type of general and assistive tech stuff I use for work. So here is most of the stuff I use to allow me to test, evaluate, demo, podcast, and use. Certainly makes accessing the technology that much easier, as I have it at my finger tips, just grab what I need and go. The tech listed is separate to what my family and I use at home. I.e. I don’t have to strip anything out of home in order to use when I go out and about for work. This was my aim as it got to annoying for my family with me constantly nicking stuff for work, so my tech lab was born. David Woodbridge January 2020. The list is roughly sorted in to Apple, Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Samsung, miscellaneous, and assistive technology. Start Of List Apple AirPods Pro. Apple TV. Apple watch Series 3 Cellular with several bands. Beat...
