AT Banter Episode 215 – GoodMaps

Indoor navigation and fully accessible public spaces has long been a dream, and this week we’re talking to a couple guys that might be looking at making that dream come true. Jose Gaztambide and Mike May from GoodMaps join Rob, Ryan and Steve this week to talk about their app and the state of the art positioning technology used in order to quickly and accurately map spaces and turn that data in an accessible digital format.

AT Banter Episode 214 – Digital Accessibility and Kathy Wahlbin

We have been talking about Digital Accessibility so much over the past few months, we decided it was high time to have a whole show dedicated to it! The boys welcome Kathy Wahlbin from the Paciello Group into the Anti-Zoom Gloom Room to discuss not only its importance but just what the term “accessible” means from a technical standpoint and how digital services are evaluated. Oh, and Ryan goes off on a rant.

AT Banter Episode 213 – The Good News Show

Something a little different this week! We wanted to do something special to celebrate International Podcast Day, so Steve came up with the idea of a News Show that breaks from the usual format of Assistive Technology. These days it’s hard to not get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of bad news that fills our days, so we’re fighting back with a little something we call The Good News Show — nothing but warm fuzzies! So if you’ve got the blues about the state of the world, this is the episode for you!
