Talking Tech for September 10 2013

Microsoft's Nokia deal by the numbers  by Kara Swisher

 

Interesting from a general tech news, point of view with Microsoft buying Nokia's device division, last week, but I wonder what this will mean for good old Talks, and of course, if Microsoft will ever get around to making Windows phone accessible via a screen reader.

Freedom Scientific FSCast for August 2013: all about the new upcoming JAWS 15 with touch screen support

 

The following link will take you to the FSCast podcast page where you can listen to the August and other podcasts within the FSCast podcast series.

 

Was quite impressed by what Freedom Scientific has in store for Jaws 15 and touch screen support.  The public beta should be coming relatively soon.

HIMS version 8 patch for BrailleSense U2

 

With iOS 7 coming up, you will need to check if your Braille display or note taker works with your iOS device running iOS 7.

 

HIMS has released a patch for (in my case BrailleSense U2) for version 8 to make sure it is compatible with iOS 7.

 

Oh and yes, it also fix's a problem that I had with musing my BrailleSense U2 with my Mac air either via Bluetooth or USB: all works well now.

 

The following link will take you to the HIMS download page.
