NC #569 Voiceless Allison, Blindshell Smart Phone, I Made Fire, Sesame Smartphone, Security Bits

I lost my voice this week so I asked the Text-to-Speech voice named, coincidentally, Allison to step in for me and MC the show. Luckily we’ve got two interviews from the CSUN Person’s With Disabilities Expo. First, we’ll hear about the BlindShell Smartphone for the visually impaired that might also be helpful to the elderly in its simplicity from blindshell.com/. My favorite interview of the show was about the Sesame Smartphone for those with motor Impairment from sesame-enable.com. Next I explain (or I should say Allison explains) how she made fire this week by editing a cron job all by herself without Bart’s help. Speaking of Bart, he’s back with some really interesting Security Bits.
