Great video of the various countdowns of BBC News 24 (now BBC News) and BBC World (now BBC World News) from 1999 to 2007, and much better graphics too but l am a bit disappointed that the video had to be removed from YouTube as l used to view it several times. But apart from that, the compilation looks even better when viewed here on this website. Anyway, thanx 4 making the compilation. truly a great effort

In this issue we introduce you to BlindyTV.com, a site which streams the soundtrack of audio described television programs and documentaries. We used this as a launching pad to discuss the difficulties of creating and finding audio described content. Now, in recent news, AccessWorld alerts its readers to a surprising new platform which may help proliferate the adoption of audio description. We say this because this particular industry has always been on the cutting edge of technological advances. Its impact has been felt from the days of the first printing press, and can be traced from the days of silent films through the adoption of instant photography, home video player/recorders, pay for view video, online credit card verification, and streaming video. And while this particular industry did not invent any of these technologies, it is widely perceived that it was the first to profit handsomely from each of these technological innovations.
In watchOS3, Apple is adding an innovative feature called SOS, which allows you to contact emergency assistance directly from your watch. Press and hold the side button and you will hear a countdown. At the end of the countdown, the watch will contact emergency services, wherever you are. Once the call is ended, the watch will automatically send a message to your pre-determined emergency contacts giving them your location. Your emergency medical information will be displayed on the screen for emergency responders.
A new, convenient feature is single sign-on. At present, the first time a video channel app is launched, you need to enter your user name and password and you need to do this for each new app. Single sign-on means that the information only needs to be entered once and it will carry over to other video apps. Cue said, "You sign in once on your Apple TV and you get access to all of your network apps." He added, "A page on the App Store will show you all the apps you have access to, and of course we're bringing this to iOS as well." If an app is available on your iOS device and on the Apple TV, downloading it to the iOS device will also cause the app to download onto your Apple TV.
The Apple News app now has over 2,000 publications. The For You section has been broken down into several sections including Top Stories and Trending. You can now subscribe to newspapers and magazines directly from the News app. There will be an option to have breaking news stories delivered straight to the locked screen.
Picking the screen size that's right for you involves several factors. Your work space and your need for portability will certainly play a role, as will the amount of magnification you need. If you want to view multiple columns on a newspaper page, while magnifying the text enough to read it, a large screen will be helpful. A massive screen won't seem as necessary if you intend to read small amounts of text, or zoom in on objects at relatively low levels of magnification.
In addition to the included large-print instructions, G-Technology Group provides free step-by-step phone support to set up and use the glasses at 703-224-9895. There are links on the G-Technology website to download the instructions in MS Word and text format and listen to an audio version of the instruction manual. You can also request that instructions be emailed to you in PDF format. An OCR program can be used to scan and read the instructions. There is a demonstration video at G-disabilityproducts.com. This video doesn't talk about the Advanced glasses and not all actions, such as finding the plug in the battery charger, are described.
At the time of this writing, the G-Technology Group website displayed some outdated and contradictory information that can be confusing. For example, the website indicates that the advanced Sonar Glasses come with a carrying case, but they do not. Cases are available for an additional $25 each. The video does not have current information. On one part of the website it says that prescription Sonar Glasses come with one battery and on another part it says that two batteries are included. The order form for the Basic Sonar Glasses has an option for choosing a detection signal, but the order form for the Advanced model does not. The website loads very slowly (both a Mac and a PC were used to check download time. Both Wi-Fi and hard wiring were used).
The text-to-speech voice used by the Galaxy is the familiar Tom voice found in many screen reader packages. When I attempted to speed speech up past 100, I found that words were chopped off as I read product descriptions. I tried re-downloading the latest software update, and re-setting the unit to factory defaults, but I was unable to successfully speed up the speech rate. This isn't a deal breaker for me, as the default rate isn't terribly slow to my ear, but I would like to see this problem resolved.
Finally, Help is exactly what one would expect. Navigate sections using the previous and next keys, and it isn't even necessary to press the "Select" key to begin reading. The I.D. Mate Galaxy comes with an audio CD that contains the user guide which is read by the ubiquitous Samantha voice all iPhone users have all come to know so well. The user guide can be downloaded from the En-Vision America Website as well.
The BrailleNote Touch comes with an onboard user guide in the form of a Web page that is easily navigated. In addition to the full user guide, context-sensitive help is available from anywhere you happen to be working. Finally, Mystic Access has provided a free and very comprehensive tutorial on using the BrailleNote Touch. It is possible for anyone interested in learning more about the tablet to download the tutorial free of charge either in DAISY or MP3 format. Anyone familiar with any of the other tutorials created by Mystic Access will appreciate the thorough, engaging style that is the hallmark of all of their tutorials. 2b1af7f3a8
