10) Don't Override Screen Reader Pronunciation | Adrian Roselli

When many devs, testers, and authors first start listening to content through a screen reader, they are surprised to hear dates, pricing, names, abbreviations, acronyms, etc. announced differently than they expect. With the best of intentions (or branding panic) they may seek to force screen readers to announce content as they (are told to) expect. But they are seeking to solve a problem that does not exist. Instead, these efforts can make interfaces and content harder to use and, in some cases, inaccessible. Broadly, screen reader users are already familiar with how their screen reader(s) announce these kinds of content (acronyms and all). Mis-pronunciations are fine. These are not bugs. Do not try to override these default announcements:

11) The New Winamp Player Will Launch On April 13, 2023

12) Why Midjourney's New Image-to-Text Generator Is an Accessibility Home Run | Charlie Sorrel | Lifewire

Midjourney now offers a clever twist on its AI image software, using its powerful machine-learning algorithms to generate text descriptions of already-existing images. This makes detailed image captions trivially easy to make and could totally change the game for blind people when it comes to pictures:

18) HuggingGPT is a Messy, Beautiful Stumble Towards Artificial General Intelligence | Thomas Smith | Medium: Subscription Required

Publisher (Di Blasi): If you would like to understand exactly how we will ultimately advance from Generative AI, which is where we are now, to Artificial General Intelligence, or AGI, at some point in the future, this is what that beginning looks like.
Thomas Smith: As AI researchers work toward the holy grail of building an Artificial General Intelligence — an AI system that can handle any task — most people likely expect that if such a system ever arrives, it will be elegant and beautifully designed. One might imagine that a truly intelligent machine would leverage some new breakthrough technology or interface with the real world in some novel way. A new paper from Microsoft suggests otherwise. It shares a model called HuggingGPT — a spaghetti-like grab bag of AI models borrowed from an open-source repository and loosely strung together on the fly. HuggingGPT is a messy, inelegant kludge. But its brain-like architecture just might be a major step towards real-life AGI:

20) My Kids And I Just Played D&D With ChatGPT4 As The DM | Obie Fernandez | March 30, 2023 | Medium: Subscription Required

Publisher (Di Blasi): If you are a Dungeons and Dragons fan, you just might find this article to be life changing. If you are not yet a Dungeons and Dragons fan, I very excitedly encourage you to check out its most recent upgrade. Ladies and gentleman, I give you ChatGPT, your new Dungeon Master. An upgrade that, quite frankly, might just change absolutely everything.
Obie Fernandez: My two oldest kids Taylor Anne and Liam, are 26 and 23 (respectively). My youngest son Tenzin is 15 years old. All of us are together at my house in Mexico City this week, and the discussion topic generating the most heat is OpenAI and GPT4. Since Tenzin has been playing tabletop RPG games like D&D for years and has a lot of experience as a DM, we discussed playing a campaign together. But then Tenzin had the bright idea of letting ChatGPT be the DM. What follows in this blog post is the transcript of the game that we played. Where we tell ChatGPT that we rolled dice, we are using Google's die roll mechanism:

26) Experimenting With AI-Generated Audio Reading | Alex Hort-Francis | Medium: Subscription Required

Publisher (Di Blasi): This is a topic being followed closely by many Tidbits readers so we thought it might help to hear how the technology is progressing. Is it indistinguishable from a human voice? Not quite yet. Is it close? Very. Did it take this person a lot of effort to make it sound this good? Not a lot. But some. How long will it be before it takes no effort at all? A year? Maybe two?

35) Why Does FaceTime Caption Only One Side of the Call? | Shari Eberts | Living With Hearing Loss

It's wonderful that Apple's latest iOS now includes built-in auto-captioning. It has been a long time coming, and more work is needed, but it is great to see accessibility for people with hearing loss finally taking center stage. One of my favorite ways to use this capability is on FaceTime. For most conversations, I use Zoom — especially if I am at home and can access it from my computer. But when I am on the go and using my iPhone, I prefer FaceTime. It's a quicker and easier way to communicate while still enjoying the benefits of seeing the person's face for speech reading cues. And the captions just make it better:

39) The Importance Of Alt Text For Screen Reader Users: A Guide To Best Practices And Accessibility | Casey Mathews | Virtual Tech Advisor And Research Assistant

Earlier last month, I was approached by a fellow author with the question, "How can I educate the authors I work with concerning accessible tech and how to make their writing available for readers who are blind, visually impaired, or who have some other print disability?" After giving this some thought, I decided the first course of action would be to explain just what accessible tech is. If you missed that introduction, please read:

40) For Users Of The Duxbury Braille Translator: Using Tags In Refreshable Braille To Control Print Output | Caryn Navy

Back in December 2022 I shared a link to the project by my coworker (and husband) David Holladay for DBT to work with a new braille file format. This new format uses one line per braille paragraph, with simplified html commands. The idea is that this new tool in DBT would allow you to use this file format to control ink print format and text entirely from a braille device. You would write such a braille file on your braille device, open it in DBT using this new type of import, translate into ink print, and export to Word. David has plans to incorporate a Word template for the margins, fonts, and line spacing for preparing an academic thesis. We seem to have hit a roadblock. This promising new feature cannot be fast-tracked into DBT without some enthusiasm from the community. Have you downloaded it? Did you like it? Would you want this feature in DBT? Do you have some suggestions to make it more relevant for your own needs? Do you think it's all garbage? We would greatly appreciate your frank comments. Here is the link:

41) He's An Instructor For The Blind And Visually Impaired Explaining How "Blindness Is A Spectrum," While Also Showing You What That Can Look Like

There are several beliefs about blindness and blind people that simply aren't true. And they seem to be derived mainly from an unfamiliarity with the way blindness works. For example, many people seem to think that to experience blindness, all you need to do is close your eyes. Mike Mulligan (@blindonthemove) is an orientation and mobility specialist, and he's raising awareness and debunking myths about the blind and visually impaired community on TikTok. In a viral video that has received 21 million views, Mike demonstrates what people with varying visual impairments might see through different simulation glasses:

Join Internet Archive's founder Brewster Kahle for a virtual book talk with author & professor of law Jessica Litman.

What are the effects of such laws on the exchange of information in a free society? Professor Jessica Litman, the John F. Nickoll Professor of Law, is the author of Digital Copyright and the co-author, with Jane Ginsburg and Mary Lou Kevlin, of the casebook Trademarks and Unfair Competition Law: Cases and Materials. Brewster Kahle, founder and digital librarian of the Internet Archive, has been working to provide universal access to all knowledge for more than 25 years.

About: Our Scope of Products: We specialize in 3 lines of products, all intended to assist in access to adaptive electronics, enhance experiences for guide dog teams, and offer practical solutions for organization and travel with a variety of leather bags, pouches, and backpacks. Then there are the random products that are included, just for fun! We enjoy working with our customers 1-on-1 to their money is well spent and not wasted on something they may not use. In thinking about our customers and whether we will carry a product our guiding motto is that it must be: practical, affordable, simple, tested, and accessible (the pasta principle) and it seems to work very well.

What We Do: We bring our business either via zoom, phone, or to your conference or convention, to give each customer a chance for questions and where possible, "hands on" evaluation of the merchandise. Kae and I test and use each product as blind users before we put it in our catalog. In the case of products for guide and service dogs, our own three guides, Thor, Debra and Melody, are engaged in the process of evaluating the usefulness, durability, and/or fun of the product. We want each of our products to be useful, accessible, affordable, and, whenever possible, fun! Our inventory is constantly changing, so a visit to us is never the same experience twice!

➜ Classified Advertisement: Every Traffic Light Accessible With The OKO Application

AYES is happy to announce the launch of our new application OKO. OKO uses artificial intelligence and the back camera to recognize the pedestrian traffic light and inform the user of the walk, don't walk and the countdown state. We bring this state back to the user with three types of feedback, visual overlay, vibrations and audio feedback.

The application does not rely on any adaptations to the traffic light and runs locally on the smartphone, this means that it works at every intersection.

We always recommend to hold the phone at chest level with the camera pointing towards the direction that you want to cross. You can then rotate your chest between 10 to 15 degrees to locate the pedestrian traffic light. The moment we see that light the software immediately reacts. This helps to orient in the right direction and also stops you from veering off into traffic because the moment you veer off the feedback stops, you reorient and receive feedback to continue in the right direction.

OKO App logo.

Simply point the back camera of the phone towards the intersection that you want to cross and the OKO application will instantly detect the traffic light and inform the user through audio and haptic feedback.

The OKO application can provide multiple services for your company, city or your country, all independent of physical infrastructure. This can increase your accessibility to 100%, overnight. OKO provides an accessible traffic light at every intersection. And, best of all, all OKO data is completely anonymized, ensuring your personal privacy at all times.

The OKO app is fully independent from infrastructure and does not require a Wi-Fi or Cellular connection to operate at full capacity. The algorithm runs locally on your device, meaning that it works consistently and reliably every single time. The application has been trained on more than 150,000 images and continues to improve.

Editorial Contributor: Ben Moxey (Volunteer)

Editor Since: January 1st 2022

Location: Newcastle, Australia

Time Zone: Australia Eastern Standard Time (AEST/AEDT) (GMT+10)

In addition to serving as an Editor to Top Tech Tidbits, Ben is also an Access and Technology Advisor for Guide Dogs, New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory (NSW/ACT).

Hi, Tidbits readers, my name's Ben Moxey and I'm based in Newcastle, Australia. I'm really happy to be part of the Tidbits Team and look forward to supporting this valuable publication.

A bit about me and how I came to work in the BVI area. I grew up with very low vision in one eye due to retinal issues and relied on magnification and speech throughout school. They also tried to teach me Braille, but let's just say that I wasn't the best student! I was determined to use my remaining vision, no matter how impractical it was becoming.

When I was 20, the other retina came off and I've now been totally blind for about 21 years. This is when my love for assistive technology, and technology in general, really kicked in. I'll be honest, I was a bit of a computer nerd anyway, but I could quickly see how technology was my key to enhanced independence and lifestyle. I embraced screen readers, early smart phones and mobility aids. I even finally realised the huge value of Braille and finished off the course, though I'm still pretty slow!

Long story short (not one of my strong points), I've worked in the BVI area for 12 years with much of that spent reviewing, recommending and teaching assistive technology that suits the individual. I'm currently a proud employee of Guide Dogs NSW/ACT where I was the Practice Lead for the assistive technology service, and I've now moved into an Access and Technology Advisor role. Basically, this involves a strong focus on accessibility and technology innovation.

Feel free to look me up on LinkedIn, but I'll warn you in advance that I haven't given my profile the recommended attention!

All the best and happy reading!

Ben Moxey

Editorial Contributor: David Woodbridge (Volunteer)

Volunteer Editorial Contributor Since: February 6, 2023

Location: Central Coast, New South Wales, Australia

Time Zone: Australia Eastern Standard Time (AEST/AEDT) (GMT+10)

In addition to serving as an Editor to Top Tech Tidbits, David also serves as an Editor to the Access Information News Publication and is also the National Commercial Assistive Technology Advisor for Vision Australia where he has worked since 1990. Over this time he has assisted people who are blind or vision impaired in their home, education, and work settings to take advantage of the benefits of using assistive and main stream technology.

In the last seventeen years, he has also been involved with evaluating technology for use by people who are blind or vision impaired covering both low and high tech equipment (including Microsoft, Samsung, Google, Amazon, and Apple). David is also one of the key spokespersons for Vision Australia relating to technology.

He has been an Apple Ambassador for Apple Australia since 2009 with a group of other Ambassadors / Apple Distinguished Educators (ADE)'s covering the range of Apple's Accessibility solutions throughout Australia.

David produces a range of podcasts (since 2011) covering Apple and other technologies which are distributed on his own podcast (http://davidwoodbr.podbean.com). In addition, he also has a regular Talking Tech program (since 2013) which can be heard every Tuesday at 4:30 Eastern Summer Time on Vision Australia Radio Melbourne (available online) or via https://omny.fm/shows/talking-tech-vision-australia-radio

David also runs a weekly Tech Monday where people can chat about assistive and main stream technology, share information, and any tips and tricks.

David lost his sight when he was 8 years old and had to learn Braille. Since then, he completed high school, went to Sydney University receiving a Social Work degree, spent 4 years drug and alcohol counselling, and then moved into his current job.

As a person who is blind, David believes that as a user of the technology that he recommends to others, that he is well situated to look at the strengths and shortcomings of the assistive technology that he comes across in both his professional and personal life, in particular, mainstream technology that is accessible.
