Hey, great show as always. regarding the maps program in IOS 6, apparently it does not provide automatic turn by turn directions in walk mode. For blind people, this is a major disadvantage. With google maps on android, it provides automatic directions for driving, walking, and even public transit, it will automatically tell you what bus to take and when to exit the bus. I would say Apple’s maps app has a long way to go.

count me as somebody who loves flexible web. There are plenty of features in plenty of software programs that, if used incorrectly by the end user, can cause adverse results, but that is not a reason to not develop those features if they also have positive applications which flexible web absolutely does. Flexible web is simply another tool in a JAWS user’s arsenal to make reading certain web pages more manageable. If the user doesn’t use the tool correctly, that’s the user’s fault, not the fault of JAWS. Not to mention, I can’t help wondering if any of the opinions expressed in this Podcast would be different if Serotek had developed flexible web rather than FS. I detected a bit of sour grapes on the part of the gentleman who mentioned how system Access works during an Amazon search.
Great podcast as usual. About that article where it talks about blind people not being connected to the net for me I have been pretty lucky. I have been on the net since I was 21 years old which was in 96 which really opened up the door and that is how my husband and I met been married for nine years and loving it. As far as Lee there has got to be some blindness organization where they do something at least twice a month so he can get out and do stuff. I know when I grew up in PA there were two camps I went to during the summer. Also if he got a PC with either NVDA or System access he could at least keep up with what is going on in the world. Not everyone needs or wants a smart phone. I know they are awesome, for me I am mainly here at home and on the PC. My cell phone is a basic one. One of these days am going to get an Ipod touch.
