This episode features two extensive demos, but first we share some important announcements.
Our two-week event on Orbit products remains open for registration. All pre-orders went through on September 15, but you still have time to join us and to tell others who may be interested. This event covers both the older and new Orbit braille displays as well as the Orbit Writer. The first part of the event is October 8 2020, and everything will be recorded in case you can’t attend live.
We apologize for not having the pre-orders available for Windows 10 or QBraille. Those will be put up ASAP. Kim wants to make sure she has a thorough syllabus in each of those product descriptions for your convenience. Kim will put a news article up when the pre-orders are available. Thanks a lot for your patience.
Finally, we announce our free September class, which will be held on September 24. This one’s all about iOS 14 and Watch OS 7 and their new features and bugs. We’d love to have you join us if interested. For more information, please make sure you’re subscribed to our Events mailing list, as we send the joining information there.
The majority of today’s episode focuses on two extensive demos. We discuss SAM Smart alert for mail, which, as the name suggests, is a mailbox alert system. We demo Sam’s sounds, discuss it’s many benefits, and share why it may be a good solution for you.
Next, Chris shares about his new Panasonic KX-TGD564M Link2Cell Bluetooth Cordless Phone with Voice Assist and Answering Machine.
We discuss its many benefits in terms of accessibility, show its talking caller ID, and more. We also remind you that if you’re looking for a really affordable landline option, and already have good internet access, we offer audio tutorials on both ViaTalk and VOIPo. These are both VOIP companies that use your existing internet connection to deliver great quality phone calls.
Thanks, as always, for listening!
