A look at the Nexus 4 from an accessibility viewpoint

After many technical issues, we’re back with episode 2 of the JL Applied Technologies podcast.

In this show, we talk about the accessibility history of Android, and what accessibility is like in Jelly Bean. We cover business for the podcast, such as a properly working Ogg feed, and the fact that there won’t be any behind the scenes  episodes. (Sorry folks!)

J describes the Nexus 4 from Google. We walk you through the setup process of the Nexus.

We also explain why headphones are needed to type passwords and how to get around it.

J talks about the experience of switching from an iPhone to Android.

We speculate on the usefulness of Android in an education environment.

I'm the founder of JL Applied Technologies. If its technology in nature, and has existed since 1996, I've probably used it! I've used DOS, Windows 95, 98, 2000, XP, Vista, 7, and Ubuntu Linux. In 2007, I started using Ubuntu full time. I'm an amateur radio operator, and hold the call sign W0JRL. Feel free to join me on the air. If you have access to a PTTLink node, dial 527650. If not, I'm on EchoLink as W0JRL-L. If you're not an amateur radio operator, you can call me on my sip server. My sip address is: sip:jeremy@sip.jlappliedtechnologies.com
