058-07-06-12- Podcasts as Assistive Technology
Hi folks. Welcome to “Accessibility Minute”, your weekly look at Assisitive Technology—those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs.
Talk radio has been popular among people who are blind or visually impaired for decades. In fact, for many people with print-related disabilities, spoken radio broadcasts are vital sources of information and entertainment. In recent years, and since the inception of podcasting technology there is a much larger body of programming available via the internet. Podcasting is rapidly becoming a common way for people with and without disabilities to access great content for free and the accessibility for many types of disabilities is an added bonus!
