CastBlaster Public Beta Inaccessible Despite Previous Assurances

June 27, 2005 • Darrell Shandrow Hilliker

Despite previous assurances of accessibility by Adam Curry and company, several blind testers have reported that CastBlaster is actually inaccessible with today’s modern screen readers such as JAWS and Window-Eyes! The blind community is quite willing to pay to play with solid podcasting software, but only if it is reasonably accessible. Podcasting is a natural fit for blind people; it would be a real shame if the CastBlaster folks end up taking it away from us. If CastBlaster’s accessibility problems do not get resolved, this will represent yet another case where the blind community will be locked out of equal participation.
