Kia ora Mosen At Largers.
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away in the Mosen Consulting days, just ahead of Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference I would post my top 10 wish list for the coming version of iOS. As a blind person, many of them were VoiceOver-related, but some of my wishes pertained to mainstream OS features and my requirements as a hearing aid wearer. Last year, I transferred this tradition to Mosen At large. With the WWDC keynote less than two weeks away, I’ll be telling you my current top 10 wishes, which of course you are welcome to agree or disagree with. More important, I’m very interested in hearing what you’d like to see in iOS 15. Don’t worry, there’s no need to provide a top 10 if you don’t have 10. Even if you have just one thing that you think would improve your iPhone experience, share it with the Mosen At Large community so we can have a constructive discussion.
And let’s not forget, Apple reveals other operating system updates at WWDC as well. Do you have features that would improve your experience with your iPad that you’d like to see in iPadOS 15, your Apple Watch for watchOS 8, or your Mac for what we believe is going to be called MacOS 12? Dream big, then write me an email or record a message for this week’s show.
Staying with things Apple, technology author Janet Ingber joined me and members of the Mosen At Large community in the Mushroom FM Club on Clubhouse earlier this week. Janet’s just updated her Mac Basics book, available from National Braille Press. We’ll talk about the book and what you can learn from it, plus Janet and some Mac users reflect on the state of the Mac today. Just what are its strengths and weaknesses and who should consider using one?
As usual, there’s a wide array of blindness and technology topics from listeners on which you may like to comment once you hear them.
If you want to raise something new, you’re very welcome.
Getting your contributions in ahead of time leaves you free to hear the show, and gives me a chance to organise them all, so go for it. Please don’t be shy, I’d love to hear from you. To contribute, send an email with an audio attachment or just written down to Jonathan at MushroomFM.com, or call the listener line, +18646066736, that’s 1-864-60Mosen.
The best way to hear Mosen At Large is when it airs live and in full. Catch it on Mushroom FM, either on the station itself or in the Mushroom FM club on Clubhouse, the Mosen At Large YouTube channel and the Mosen At Large Facebook page on Saturdays at 2 PM Eastern, that’s 7 PM in the UK. It will then be available in abridged form on the Mosen At Large podcast, available anywhere you get podcasts. If you RSVP to the event on Clubhouse, you’ll be sent a notification when it starts, plus you’ll be helping to spread the word to your followers, so we really appreciate the RSVP there.
Thank you so much for listening and contributing to the show and see you soon for Mosen At Large.
