The Friday Morning Podcast <http://feedproxy.google.com/%7Er/FredsHeadCompanion/%7E3/u2DVUmwbXR4/friday-morning-podcast.html>
Posted: 20 Mar 2009 06:04 AM PDTThe following information comes from Top Tech Tidbits <http://www.topdotenterprises.com/tidbits.htm> and is posted here for your convenience.
Bill Boules has launched what he calls the Friday Morning Podcast, which often appears on other days. He does some adaptive technology training and discusses favorite topics of his. He actively seeks feedback. Recent episodes have discussed the Amazon mp3 site and the Scrip Talk method for labeling prescriptions.
"I have been an access technology specialist for several years. My goal is to provide the best possible computer training to people who are blind, or have low vision. I have been a computer user since the late 1980s and have provided training to blind professionals nationwide. One of the things I like most is recording the podcast and reading listener feedback. It is important to me to have feedback so that I make necessary changes in the way that I provide training. I want people to subscribe to the podcast and enjoy learning about the great world of assistive technology. Additionally, I try to add some fun to the podcast. It's great to learn but it shouldn't be a chore. I feel that I can make technology fun and useful to folks that are new to it."
