Double Tap Express: Quality of Audio Description, End for Soundscape & Hable One Upgrades Double Tap

    • Technology

Today on the show, Steven and Shaun review the week here at Double Tap. AMI’s Grace Scoffield joins the team to bring us the news, featuring some serious news from Amazon's Ring, which has just settled with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission for a whopping $5.8 million over privacy violations. We're also saying goodbye to celebrity voices on Amazon’s Alexa-enabled devices, and the BrailleWear glove developed by ORama AI is set to revolutionize the way people read Braille.

Also, BlackRock Neurotech is making strides with their brain implant technology, and we discuss the future of the Microsoft Soundscape app, which is going open-source in June.

And we get into the nitty-gritty of some cool tech updates. If you've got the Hable One Braille input keyboard, you'll want to tune in for Shaun Preece's tips on updating your device. We're also reviewing the official ChatGPT app from Open AI, which just launched in 40 new countries, courtesy of Thomas Domville, also known as Anonymous.

We also bring up our earlier discussion this week on the quality of audio description with blind journalist and advocate Robert Kingett. He's been working with Netflix to ensure their original content is audio described, and he's got some fascinating insights to share.

And of course, we're getting hyped for Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference and the much anticipated Apple headset wearable device.
