Double Tap Podcast Episode 122: Talking To Browsers & Robo Guide Dogs

Double Tap Canada is back for another hour of discussion, features, fighting, laughs and even singing as the DTC team take a look at what’s new in tech.

Talking To Tech.

Shaun takes a look at Firefox Voice, an addon that promises the ability to talk to your browser to control things like media playback, tab switching and more. Is this the future of website interfaces or is voice recognition still not quite good enough? Also, with the Amazon Alexa app in the Windows Store, has Microsoft given up on Cortana?

Podcasting Help.

Listener Derry emails to ask what options there are when it comes to getting your podcast out to the public. Tim reveals all about the services he uses and the other options available.

Accessible Keyboards.

We also received an email from Mario regarding musical keyboard accessibility. Are the accessibility features built into the Yamaha Genos actually usable or is there a better option? If you know the answer get in touch.

Smart Mobility.

Just how useful is technology when it comes to mobility. Is a robot guide dog a possibility? Steven seems to think so. If not, can the humble white cane really be improved with smart tech?
