Today's episode features a very interesting castle interview, but we begin with several important announcements.
Our October free event will deal with making sure those many and varied household tasks are accessible to you. There are tons of ways to conduct tasks, and many modifications or tricks one can use to make a task easier. If you've been curious about how to make that appliance easier to use, how to perform a task with less stress, or how to save time while doing housework, this class could be very interesting. And if you participate live, bring your own tips to share at the afterparty, if you wish. The event will be held on Thursday, October 29 at 8:30 PM ET. If you're on our Events mailing list, information will be sent to you early in the week of the event.
Speaking of events, we clarify are policy about recording Q and A sessions for free versus paid events, and also share the important news that we'll now be using passwords on all future events, in addition to the waiting room feature of Zoom. Please listen carefully for all the details.
We're happy to announce that our event on the Orbit family of products was a great success. If you couldn't attend the event, you can now purchase the audio in both DAISY and MP3 by visiting this page. A written transcript will be coming soon, and will be available to all those who have purchased the new product.
Chris may have bought yet another Alexa device on Prime Day. He compares the Echo Show 8 to his original Echo Show device, and shares some reasons you may wish to upgrade yours.
Finally, we enter the Mystic Access magic castle to speak with Jose Gaztambide, CEO, and Mike May, Chief Evangelist at Good Maps. Learn about the innovative work they're doing, especially in regards to indoor navigation.
