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.

PoP #12 How to Register Your Podcast in iTunes

This short tutorial is intended to teach you how to take your existing podcast feed and get it listed in iTunes.

You will also need to have an Apple ID – this is the free ID you use in order to buy music, movies and TV shows through the iTunes store. If you don’t have an Apple ID you can also use an AOL login.

PoP #10 Recording a Skype Conversation

One of the easiest ways to do interviews, or to have a co-host for your audio podcast is to call the other person on Skype, and then record the audio coming out of Skype along with your own microphone input. I’ll demonstrate how to do this using WireTap Studio. Skype is a free application and service that allows you to make computer to computer calls for free, or from a computer to a regular telephone for a very small fee.
