In this new and exciting episode we talk about:
• iOS 6.1. What they fixed. What they broke.
• CAPTCHA …and why it should die!
• OSX 10.8 Pro Tools snafu. Stay positive now. Especially those of you with brand new Macs.
We then talk about important things such as:
• Signature guitars and why most of them suck.
• Amp modeling, impulses and how they don’t suck.
As mentioned in the last episode we’re revisiting OSX accessibility. We’re joined by jamieTeh of NV Access (a truly professional accessibility hero and tuff like dat and da whole big ting).
It is not just about VoiceOver this time. Its about efficient user interfaces. Some very basic concepts such as:
• Keyboard access
• Keyboard shortcuts
Followed by a bit of good old VoiceOver stuff like:
As always listen to find out more.
Speaking of efficiency and keyboard access and tuff like dat you might want to check out this old article by Apple. It hasn’t been updated in a while.

Moreover the so-called full keyboard access gives no access to sidebars and contextual menus. **hint: email@example.com is awaiting your positive and professional feedback.
Greetings happy Apple user!
The latest version of iOS is here. Alex and myself go over some of its new features, accessibility improvements, bug fixes and more.
We then have ourselves a jolly rant about twitter douchebaggery, wannabe “leaders” and “NDA police”.
So hit play and enjoy!
Ok, let the pointless pedantry begin. Its “Mountain Lion” & we know that. eh?
Alex and I talk about accessibility features of 10.8. Including:
• New features.
Kick back & listen!
J and not J (Yours truly aka Ivan) talk about amazing features of iOS 5 such as:
• VoiceOver loses TTS
• VoiceOver loses TTS and sounds
• VoiceOver loses focus
• VoiceOver ignores its own gestures
• Voiceover and Zoom both decide to come on at the same time and ignore their gestures
• Accessibility settings blow themselves away
These amazing (and rather random) bugs are impossible to reproduce on demand so according to accessibility@apple they are not a problem at all.
For more details LISTEN TO THE SHOW!
…and remember: “One bug added”
