Updates below for all members of the Tidbits community. These are general updates for the week of April 21st 2022.
➜ Premium Subscriber Updates
Last week we announced a new Premium Subscriber option and I am incredibly happy to report that the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Serious hats off to Tidbits readers for stepping in to help shape the future of the Top Tech Tidbits publication. As of this writing 44 Top Tech Tidbits subscribers have signed on to be Premium Subscribers. This may not seem like a lot but it's a great number to start and says to all of us that we will definitely (eventually) meet the minimum goal of 80 Premium Subscribers needed to keep this option alive. So if you've already signed up, you can take a deep breath. The Top Tech Tidbits Premium Subscriber option is here to stay and you will receive your first quarterly issue on July 4th 2022. On behalf of all of us here at Tidbits we would like to thank you, sincerely, for taking a chance on an option that will now shape future upgrades to the Top Tech Tidbits Publication. It is our sincerest hope that Sponsors and Supporters will keep Tidbits alive while Premium Subscribers work to improve the publication through reader feedback. I will provide updates on these upgrades as they become available. Below are a few that we are working on right now that we could use your help with.
➜ New Premium Subscriber Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Section Added
We have added a new Frequently Asked Questions section for Premium Subscribers and/or those that might be considering becoming one. If you have a question that you would like answered that has not yet been answered within this section please reach out to me at: email@example.com ✉.
➜ Feedback Request: "Featured Webinars and Training Courses" Section
Tidbits Reader Winslow writes in to suggest that we alter the format of events that appear within the "Featured Webinars and Training Courses" section of the Top Tech Tidbits weekly newsletter. Winslow has provided some really great feedback in the past so we immediatly dove into his request and immediately understood his point. Though we're not quite sure how best to solve it. So we thought we would put the issue to Tidbits readers to solicit some feedback from the community that might help. The very valid point that Winslow makes is this. When reading an entry in the "Featured Webinars and Training Courses" section of the Top Tech Tidbits newsletter screen reader users are currently forced to listen to the date and times of the event before they get to the description for the event. Winslow's point is that this becomes a repetitive hassle anytime a screen reader user wishes to review the current list of "Featured Webinars and Training Courses". For diagnosis the current anatomy of a single event is this: Title, Date, Time (in many zones), Description, and Link to join. This is the format for every single event currently. It is also important to note that, structurally, all events in this section are presented chronologically by "Date". This is why we believe that placing the date and/or times after the description would be very misleading structurally. And as a result many readers would miss this critical information. So what should we do? Should we offer only one time for all events rather than offering the same time in multiple time zones? Many readers have said they appreciate having multiple time zones present so they don't have to convert each time. I suggested the possibility of wrapping the date and time in descending heading tags to make them easily skippable, but this may be complicating matters. What structure do you feel would make for the most convenient reading experience for a screen reader user? We would appreciate any feedback you might wish to share. This new feature request made possible by Premium Subscribers. Reach me at: firstname.lastname@example.org ✉.
➜ Seeking Product Reviews
If you are a blind or visually impaired reader of Top Tech Tidbits who has recently purchased a BVI-related product or service, we encourage you to share a review with us. Whether your experience was positive, and you'd like to shower praise, or negative and you'd like to constructively rant, we encourage you to share you experiences with us. When you do we will post your reviews to the Top Tech Tidbits website, either with your name, or anonymously. Your choice. These reviews will then be shared with Tidbits readers weekly as they become available. You don't have to be a professional writer. You just need to have some valuable product or service insights to share. If this sounds interesting to you please reach out to me at: email@example.com ✉.
Thanks so much for reading, we look forward to keeping you informed!
