Life After Blindness is joined by two very special guests this week. First to discuss the weeks news is Derek Daniel from Life After Sight Loss. And later we hear about Aira from New York Times best-selling author of the book Thunder Dog and Director of Strategic Sales for Aira, Michael Hingson.
Derek and Tim begin by talking about the upcoming Apple event on September 12. They discuss all the rumors surrounding the new iPhone, Apple TV, Apple Watch and the new Home Pod.
Tim and Derek then talk about an inspiring story from Southern California. Jake Olson, who is the long snapper for USC, snapped the winning extra point in a recent game.
The news wraps up with a discussion about a new musical that is directed at children called Addy & Uno. Each of the five main characters in this musical are puppets who represent a different disability, including blindness.
Following the news, Tim demonstrates the Aira app for iPhone. He talks about everything from how to contact an agent, to checking your usage and even how to check your inbox for photos and videos.
To conclude the podcast, Tim interviews Michael Hingson for more specific details about Aira. Michael talks about how he came to work for Aira, using the service and the goals of the company. He even comments on the perceived high price of the service and its plans to expand internationally.
Michael concludes by telling us about an upcoming conference call that Aira will be holding on Tuesday, September 12, 2017. The call will begin at 8:00 PM Eastern time, 5 o’clock Pacific. This conference call is designed to answer any and all of your questions concerning the Aira service.
