Greetings,

1) Sure enough, it wouldn't be the first of the month without the "AppleVis Unlimited: What's New and Noteworthy" for the month which just concluded posting. Very handy:

2) A new version of Leasey is due out later this month, featuring news, weather and dictionary search among other features. Every day in July (2017), brief audio tutorials with accompanying text transcripts, "Leasey Bites," are being produced to highlight Leasey's numerous features. It and several Hartgen Consultancy training packages are on significant sale through 24 July 2017:

3) HumanWare will be releasing the Victor Reader Trek, a digital player with built-in GPS. Listen to a 75-minute Blind Bargains interview and demonstration:

4) There are 20 videos on the Chrome & Chrome OS Accessibility YouTube channel:

http://bit.ly/2trDkgi

5) Tim Schwartz of the Life After Blindness Podcast discusses the audio description available through Amazon with the folks from RNIB:

http://bit.ly/2sOTCy2

6) The article "Need Vision on Demand? There's an App for That," in the July 2017 issue of The Braille Monitor is a well-considered look at visual assistance we never could have received even five years ago. I would have put "Be My Eyes" at the top of her services list, but even without that minor difference, this is a must read:

7) You can read about Kiran Kaja from Google Accessibility and download a .PDF of his presentation at a recent conference:

http://bit.ly/2tKf4c2

8A) The A T Junkie podcast returns with episodes about the new certification for Assistive Technology Instructional Specialist:

8B) And HookeAudio 3D Recording Headphones:

http://bit.ly/2urMw4H

9) There truly is remarkably little news for the first of the two convention weeks in the US, but Blind Bargains Qast #107 fills the gap as best it can:

http://bit.ly/2srPfJZ

10) The present and future of currency identification is the topic for Eyes on Success Episode #1728, which was first aired last fall:
