Getting Started with the Google Now Launcher

The Google Now Launcher, is probably the best Launcher on the android OS that makes it possible for a blind person to have total control of his or her icons and folders, and arrange them to one's liking. Unfortunately, this Launcher only works on devices running Lollipop, Android 5.x or higher. In other words, if you are using any version of the Android OS that is lower than 5.x, this Launcher will not produce the result that is being demonstrated in thsi little Tutorial. I would be revising the tutorial later on, should things change.

Introducing the KNFB Reader for android!

During the 2015 NFB National Convention, upcoming releases of the KNFB reader for android were, of course, prominantly and proudly on display. I caught up with James Gashel on Saturday July 11th for an interview and demonstration of the new KNFB reader for android. Now you can hear that demo and conversation even before the official reliece of the app. I asked Jim for 5 or 10 minutes. He gave me 45. I boiled it down to a 20 minute audio, and I hope you enjoy.

how to submit a device to inclusive android

This is a quick and dirty guide on how to submit a device to the inclusive android device directory. I hope it will incourage more of you to try it as there are so many great devices and peripherals out there and no one person can review them all.

So public speaking isn't my best skill. The finished product is heavily but not perfectly edited. Also I did not have my mixer or pro mics available and it shows. I will make a better one next month if it's wanted but for now, enjoy as I add the very popular but seldom used any more sony ericsson xperia pro to our device directory.
