Double Tap Podcast Episode 121: TV Themes, Unflipping Screens & Accessible Memes

Brace yourselves, Steven Scott has found a folder full of TV theme tunes and he’s not afraid to use them. This week’s Double Tap Canada ain’t getting on no plane, but we are looking at what’s new in the world of tech.

Audio Description.

We revisit the topic of audio description as the curse of Picard strikes again. With yet another episode’s audio description track having some real issues, we hear from some listeners with their take on the state of audio description and how it needs to improve.

Create A Podcast.

Next, Robin Christopherson shows us just how quickly and easily you can create a podcast using the Rec Up app and Audacity. Can he really create a Dot to Dot episode in 5 minutes? Yes, he can.

Accessible Gaming.

Tim then tells us about a new game from game developer Rare. They have announced that every game they make from now on will focus on being inclusive. But just what does that mean and how can it be done? We’ll take a listen to the audio described trailer for their upcoming game EverWild.

Samsung Unpacked 2020.

Next up, Shaun runs through the Samsung Unpacked 2020 event and gets all nostalgic about flip phones and excited about megapixels.

Talking Labels & Talking Tweets.

On to assistive tech news this week we look at the announcement that ScripTalk will now be available in Empire pharmacies across Canada, meaning that blind & visually impaired customers can easily read medicine instructions. Also, if you are all about the memes, then the news that Twitter has expanded alt text to include animated Gifs should make you very happy.

The show wraps up with an email from Double Taps own unofficial poet, Billy. He lets us know just what’s in his drawers in his own unique style.
