A couple of months ago I posted that Steve Bennett from Dolphin Computer Access and I were interviewed on RNIB’s Tech Talk radio show. On the show Steve and I talk about some of Dolphin’s products, specifically SuperNova, Guide, EasyReader app for iOS and Android and the new Reader Pod. The show is now available to listen to at the following link:
It’s been an exciting day for AVC today. I was invited to take part in a radio interview for RNIB Tech Talk to speak about Dolphin products. The interview featured the show’s presenter, Steven Scott, talking to Dolphin’s Chief Operations Officer, Steve Bennett, and me as both a user of Dolphin products and an accredited trainer on SuperNova and Guide.
The show lasts for around 30 minutes in which we talk about the different assistive technology products available from Dolphin, our various experiences of assistive technology in general and address some misconceptions, in particular regarding what SuperNova and Guide can or cannot do.
It was a really interesting experience and was actually quite fun. The show is due to go out on air in a couple of weeks time. I will of course post confirmation of the date and time once I know them.
Yesterday morning I was interviewed by BBC Three Counties Radio for an upcoming programme about disability and overcoming adversity. The programme will feature several short interviews with a number of people from all walks of life and with a variety of disabilities. All have faced and overcome the challenges and restrictions that their disabilities bring them on a daily basis and resolutely refuse to let themselves be beaten. They have made significant adjustments to the way they approach their lives and have experienced dramatic and positive changes in the direction their lives have taken as a result.
I am thrilled to be involved in this programme and know that it will help to dispel the myth that disabled people are incapable of achieving ambitious goals. I encourage you to listen if you can and of course share this information with as many people as you can.
The programme is called Shrink Wrapped and runs from 1pm to 2pm on BBC Three Counties Radio this Sunday 14th December. You will also be able to catch it on the listen again service on the station’s website or via the BBC iPlayer if you miss it.
