Talking Technology with V I Labs Episode 54 – Aira, Voice Dream, and a Solar Eclipse

Date: Tuesday 9th April

Time: 2.30pm

On the show this week we catch up with Everette Bacon, Vice President of Blindness Initiatives at Aira Technologies to find out about the inspiration behind this popular app, how it works, and future developments including the new Access AI Feature.

Voice Dream Reader, the highly regarded text-to-speech reading app, was set to be the latest beloved app to adopt a subscription model. But now that’s no longer the case. We discuss what happened.

Plus, we share a vivid depiction of yesterday’s solar eclipse in North America by one of Aira’s skilled visual interpreters, capturing the unique experience for blind and vision impaired listeners.
