We start off with is it a bird? Is it a plane? Was it Ed flying around in a JetPack in Los Angeles this past weekend, or maybe the real Iron Man? That screaming you heard was Ed and Brian during a tension breaker when they heard that all newly redesigned apps are coming to amazon and Facebook. We hear Netflix watch parties are all the rage these days, can they ever be made fully accessible? Mask Selfie’s being required by Uber, anyone else plan to use a photo of the Lone Ranger? After our interview with Karen Kramer, a retired O and M trainer, its on to an important conversation about advocacy. Are you doing more harm then good with your advocacy?

Episode 89 - Singaporian Echo Urns
It’s an all new That Real Blind Tech Show with the gang in their separate lairs. And we start talking about how someone wants to copy That Real Blind Tech show and build their own lair. China claims it has discovered aliens, but then quickly deletes the report. How did a man in Japan lose his entire town’s digital information? The A Lady may soon be able to mimic the voice of a deceased relative. Creepy or cool? Instagram is testing out a new tool that will be able to tell your age by scanning your face. Again, creepy or cool? It has been awhile since the three of us recorded last, and one of us, has a new M1 Mac Book Pro. Who will never guess who, and you will not want to miss the story behind the purchase, as it was not bought at your every day retailer. Brian then tells his adventure with his Air Pod Pros and what he learned at the Apple Store that you may be able to try and do if your Air Pod Pros are making funky noises. Rumors be running wild that the Air Pod Pro 2’s could have heart monitoring and work as hearing aids. Allison is the brave one as she is running both the iOS and Mac betas. Even though the betas are in the very early stages we figured we would find out what she likes so far besides the Eloquence voices. This some how leads to a debate about the Singaporean English voice and what the heck language do people speak in Singapore if there is no language called Singaporean? The fun continues with a little more smack talk with the guys and gal over at Blind Guy Talks Tech. In iOS 16, you will now be able to mark junk text messages as spam. Personalized Spatial Audio is coming to Air Pod Pros, but we have no clue what this means or actually will be, but Apple claims it is a thing. Here’s a list of what features will not be coming to Intel Macs and what features may not be ready when OS Ventura is released in the fall. Prime Day 2022 will be July 12 and 13, but the sales have already begun, and Brian and Allison already jumped on the massive sale for the Echo Frames. CNN was baffled that there are PodFasters out there. Obviously the crack writers at CNN have never ever met a blind person. And for the inner hippy in all of us, we found this article about soundscapes from all over the world that you can listen to to chill out. And it’s more of What’s Pissing Off Brian Now and Watcha Streaming, Watcha Reading!

Episode 88 - A Demo of How to Transfer Music Playlists From One Provider to Another
It’s been awhile, but it’s another Super Cool, super Solo That Real Blind Tech Show demo from Brian. With more big companies playing nice together, it was about time for Brian to ditch his subscription to Amazon Music, and switch to Apple Music as part of the Apple One Plus option. The issue with switching music providers is how do you take your playlists with you that you have been spending so much time creating over the years. Well, with the help of a third party free website, called Tune My Music, The good news is with Tune My Music you can transfer playlists between almost any music provider. The disappointing news, at least on the Mac, is you have to take all of your playlists with you, as the feature to deselect individual playlists is not accessible. Still, even with this issue, we thought it was worth it to demo how to take all of your music playlists from one provider to another.

Episode 87 - A Conversation with the Miami Lighthouses Virginia Jacko and Jorge Hernandez
It’s an all new fully packed That Real Blind Tech Show lair, as Brian and Ed welcome in Virginia Jacko, CEO of the Miami Lighthouse and Jorge Hernandez, IT Manager for the Miami Lighthouse. We kick things off catching up with Virginia since we last spoke with her mid-pandemic, and find out how things have been going at the Miami Lighthouse. We then learn what Jorge does as the IT Manager on a day to day basis. Next we dive in to the headache of web overlays and where we are in fighting the battle against them. The conversation then moves too distant learning, and the importance of teachers understanding basic accessibility and accessible instruction. Here is the web accessibility Overlay fact sheet we discuss during the interview. The Miami Lighthouse was heavily involved in reviewing the Presidential candidates websites during the 2020 election. We find out if politicians are following the Lighthouses’s advice on the importance of making their website accessible as we approach the Mid-term elections. Virginia then walks us through one outstanding example of a case where The Florida Division of Blind Services really excelled. We then discuss the differences between working with younger and older visually impaired and blind individuals. We discuss policy of government agencies, and the Lighthouse, and how important tackling the mental health side of blindness needs to be. Virginia then explains to us some of the non-technical services that the Miami Lighthouse offers. We find out how and who is eligible for services from the Miami Lighthouse. There are several ways to keep up with the Miami Lighthouse. If you are eligible for services through them, you may want to check out their online shop. To check out all of the amazing services the Miami Lighthouse offers, please visit their website.
