White Cane Week happens every year during the first week of February and this week we welcome Canadian Council of the Blind’s President, Louise Gillis, to discuss what White Cane Week is, fill us in on all the events happening, and the CCB’s year round mandate to help support and advocate for blind and partially sighted Canadians.
These days it might seem like no news is good news, but Rob and Ryan do their best to drum up some of the latest Assistive Technology news that 2021 has to offer so far, including discussing an article about the problem of the cost of AT devices and some news about accessibility that is being built into new TVs.
It’s the first episode of 2021 and Rob and Ryan are not only well rested from the Holidays, but optimistic that 2021 is going to be a great year! After a mini- discussion about Braille in celebration of World Braille Day, the boys welcome Pramit Bhargava as the first guest of 2021 to talk about his new app, Louie, which add voice control functionality to Android based smartphones.
