    Chowing on Dots

    the BlindTechAdventurers are joined by Keith and Julie Harrison to discuss an innovative new modality for teaching and learning Braille. At the heart of this is an app called Tonal Braille. We discuss this innovative method, and demo the app.

    * To download Tonal Braille, check out https://play.google.com/store/apps/de...

    We discuss some news articles, including Google I/O, and the introduction of new accessibility features to Android.

    Next, we demo the new Sound Recorder app in Windows 11 Insider builds.

    Finally, we engaged in a discussion of Braille. How do we use Braille, which devices do we use, is Braille even still relevant, etc.

Nimer shows us how to set up the Windows Subsystem for Linux, with Kirt sharing some powerful - and somewhat obscure- windows keystrokes during Nimer's inevitable reboots throughout the setup process.
