    Hi guys, am listening to 112 of the podcast and I’ve just thought of a good idea that I’m wondering if the Apple accessibility team or anyone have thought of could do, unless someone’s thought of it already. Because when you first get the iPhone there’s no speech, and you may have to have asistance with setting up, either because Siri’s not ready to be used for one reason or another, or you are new to the IOS famly and want to do it on you’re own, have no computer or sited person around etc; This would be a cool thing to do. Why not someone record some self voicing prompts to get them up and running to the point to where they could tirn VO on? A good way to do this is to maybe use three fingers and tap on the screen twice and hold for a few seconds and the Siri voice could start talking, Tim Cook, or whoever could say hello and welcome to you’re new iPhone yada yada and guide them on getting setup, by possibly saying something like, “If you wish to continue in english, please say yes, or tap the bottom right corner of the screen, if not, tap the left bottom corner or say No.” thoughts? Just something that popped in to my head out of know where. Also, as a side note, Would love to record a Intro for you guy’s podcast that you could use from time to time… :d Wel, talk later. See ya!

    Well, a few days ago I posted a real live Demo of the KNFB Reader link to a podcast from my drop box account . Now I would like to say it is up on the Blind Geek Zone site. I think your listeners will find it helpful. So see link below to it. Enjoy!
