Rick Harmon will discuss the topic of Podcasts on Monday, June 7th 2010 on Accessible World's tek talk. He will tell us what a podcast is, where to get them and how to play them on your computer or portable device. He will talk about a couple of different pod catchers usable by blind persons, including Accessible podcatcher, Juice and iTunes. He will show us several places where we can find podcasts to download. Rick will also briefly talk about what is necessary to create a podcast as well. After the demonstration, Rick will take questions from the virtual audience.
