iAccessVO, Making It Happen With VoiceOver Accessibility, hosted by Brian Fischler and Ed Plumacher.

Getting Started. (iAVO-001)

Welcome to our first iAccessVO podcast, a bi-monthly presentation of VoiceOver accessibility on iOS devices and Apple Mac computers, hosted by Brian Fischler and Ed Plumacher.

It's not all about Apple.

We praise Apple for their accessibility efforts and call them out when they fall short of community expectations.

Early Adopters vs. those who wait to upgrade. 

It is a personal preference based on needs.
