Main Menu 22 Jun 2012

This week’s show starts with Executive Producer Chase Crispin presenting his weekly technology Update. Bill McCann from Dancing Dots introduces us to products from Dancing Dots and demonstrates their software package that allows a blind musician the ability to read and compose music on their Windows based computer with all the features and flexability of some of the best music composing software on the market. MainMenu staff member David Woodbridge from Vision Australia shows us the Light Detector app for your Apple iOS device that gives the blind person an excellent light probe on their device. MainMenu listeners in the Minneapolis/St Paul twin cities area who listen to MainMenu through Minnesota Radio Talkingbook will need the new digital receiver supplied by Minnesota Radio Talkingbook starting on June 25th in order to hear MainMenu from that service starting next week. If they do not have the new digital radio they should contact the Communications Center at Minnesota State Services for the Blind to request that a new digital radio be sent to them at (651) 642-0500. Meantime they can also access MainMenu through the MainMenu page at or through and take the link in the Communications Center to Radio Talkingbook, and finally login at the listen live link where they can find the latest MainMenu link for on demand listening! It’s all on MainMenu this week on ACB Radio Mainstream! Main Menu can be first heard on Fridays at 9:00 pm Eastern time. It airs throughout Saturday on ACB Radio Mainstream. It is also available in the iTunes store, in the iBlink Radio app for IOS and Android devices, and is available to Radio Reading Services around the world.
