NCBI Labs Technology Live Event 56

On the show this week we’re delighted to have back with us Stephen Howell, Senior Program Manager with Microsoft Ireland. Stephen tells us about the latest accessibility features and enhancements to look forward to in Windows 11.

We also find out from Stephen all there is to know about the much-anticipated Surface Adaptive Kit being brought out by Microsoft to make its hardware more accessible. Showcased at the recent Microsoft Surface Event, the Adaptive Kit features a variety of tactile and high-contrast labels to help people with impaired vision identify keyboard keys, ports, and cables more easily.

Finally, we reveal our top tips and tricks to try out with the Apple HomePod Mini smart speaker, including making calls, sending texts, and playing music.
