A Brain, Cane, Pair of Ears and My Trusty iPhone Show Me the Way

October 17, 2010 • Darrell Shandrow Hilliker

Enjoy this approximately 36-minute sound-seeing adventure as I get off the bus, check into the bus stop using Foursquare, cross two streets, walk to a shopping center and combine use of the A+ Voice Compass iPhone app with a bit of sighted assistance to locate Supercuts for a long-needed hair cut. It is just one example of the responsible combination of traditional orientation and mobility skills and technology to achieve successful results while traveling as a blind person.

Walking with Mobile Geo 1.5 Part 1

March 7, 2009 • Darrell Shandrow Hilliker

By popular demand, Karen and I are once again exploring the possibility of returning to podcasting. In this new episode, we take a short Saturday afternoon walk while I experiment with the new Mobile Geo 1.5 accessible GPS solution developed by Code Factory and Sendero Group. We hope you enjoy this sound seeing adventure. As always, your feedback and active participation is appreciated.

Correction: Though Mobile Geo relies on technology licensed from Sendero, the product is developed and sold by Code Factory. I make several references in the podcast to the need for Sendero to fix certain problems. That may or may not be entirely factual, depending on the technical nature of the issue. It is the case, however, that Code Factory is the first line of attack on any concerns having to do with the Mobile Geo product. I apologize for my unintentional misrepresentation of fact in this podcast episode.
