Rick Harmon joins us on Monday, February 14 2011 to demonstrate Hope the
accessible interface for Pandora radio written by Christopher Toth the
developer of Qwitter on the Windows PC platform. Rick will show us how the
program works to make the Pandora service 100% accessible. This program
costs $10 and is available to persons in the United States only due to
Pandora restrictions. The Hope program can be purchased by going to:
Next Rick shows us how to use your iDevice I.E. iPod touch, iPad, iPhone 4.x
with a Apple bluetooth keyboard. He will show us how to do many things on
the device such as opening programs and switching between programs, surfing
the net, downloading apps from the app store, typing text without ever
touching the screen of the device. This not only makes using the devices
easier in many ways but it also may open the device up for use by persons
that may not be able or desire to use the devices otherwise.
Rick will take questions from the audience after each presentation.
