Coming up on Mosen at Large 181, Braille HID expectations and complexity, a demo of Sonos Voice Control, and a joyous personal announcement

Kia ora Mosen at Largers. Our amazing community has put together another informative, thought-provoking listen for you, and it’ll be in your podcast app this weekend. Here’s a sneak peak of what you can expect.

There’s more on the issue of Braille HID support, or should I say lack thereof, in Talkback in Android 13. How long might it take until Braille HID comes to Android, and should all Braille display manufacturers offer backward compatibility in the interim?

Sonos has released its much-anticipated voice control feature, which you can install on compatible devices and then invoke with the Hey Sonos command. But do you want to? I put it through its paces this week and demonstrate how to upgrade a compatible device.

David and Joanna Mosen join us. If you were listening to my shows back in 2000 when David was born, their news might just make you feel old.

A reminder that this is the first of two episodes you will receive in the next few days. Right after the WWDC keynote concludes, we’ll be recording some analysis from a blindness perspective and publishing that thang right to the podcast feed. Stand by for it.


There’s plenty more on the show as well. If you want to raise something new, you’re very welcome. Please don’t be shy, I’d love to hear from you. What makes Mosen At Large special is the global community we’ve built and all the perspectives we share with each other.
