Hi, this is Allison Sheridan of the NosillaCast Apple Podcast, hosted at, a technology geek podcast with an EVER so slight Apple bias. Today is Sunday, December 17, 2023, and this is show number 971.

Before we get too deep into the show, I want to tell the live audience that this will be the last live show of the year. But of course, it’s not the last show of 2023! You’ll be getting a show shortly before Christmas and another one shortly before New Year’s. I’ve got some help already lined up with Bodie and Bart, but I’m still a little short on content for the New Year’s show, so if you get a toy as a gift you want to do a little review of, that would be swell. I should be able to pull it off but a little help wouldn’t be turned away.

With so many people traveling this time of year, it’s up to the NosillaCast to give you lots of great content to keep your ears full on long drives or waiting for planes. And unlike many shows, they won’t be reruns!

    Thanks for sharing the description to add alt text to Instagram posts. To this day I would have sworn Instagram doesn’t even support alt text. I completely did not know.

    Yay! It’s the most buried of them all so I’m not surprised you didn’t discover it on your own. I think Instagram is SUCH a visual social media app that it might not be the most likely place for the blind so they didn’t think it was a priority. Then again I got a thank you from a blind subscriber to ScreenCastsONLINE! So it turns out the blind want to do everything sightlings do. Go figure!
