S1E109 – 20230221 – Tuesday Topics – Cell Phones used by those who are blind.

Last week we discussed new devices that are expected this year and, after that, barely scratched the surface

with a discussion of phones. As a result, we will begin this edition with a discussion of the three main groups of phones used by people who are blind
or have low vision. We will talk about the iPhone and will explore how it has morphed into so much more than just a device for making calls. We will look
at Android phones and explore who uses them and, with your help, maybe come to understand why people like them. The third group of phones are beginning
to have a renaissance of sorts. These are phones which are specifically designed for people who are blind or have low vision. They are push button cell
phones that have an overlay of features that are built on top of the operating system specifically aimed at people who are blind or have low vision. Whereas,
in the past, many features that were available on iPhones and androids were not available on this group of phones, that has changed. Who likes these phones
and why? What can these phones now do? Are there shortcomings that should be considered?
We hope that people who have android phones as well as phones from the third group will call in and tell us about their experiences.
