   - An Accessibility Review of the Fire TV with VoiceView from Amazon, by
   Bill Holton
   <http://afb.us11.list-manage.com/track/click?u=bd3c8fefc9f905f5ccf41c577&id=2c5229ee99&e=0122cec033>
   If you own an Apple TV and wish you could also accessibly stream Prime
   Video on your home TV, the $40 cost of a Fire TV makes it an affordable
   option. The Fire TV VoiceView Preview is by no means a finished product.
   But it does most of what it needs to do to allow you to watch Prime Videos
   or accessibly purchase and play a movie or TV episode.

   OS, by Aaron Preece
   <http://afb.us11.list-manage.com/track/click?u=bd3c8fefc9f905f5ccf41c577&id=9d62a60a2b&e=0122cec033>

   Some needed commands are not yet implemented and there are issues with
   some controls and applications in this beta version, but even in its
   current state, ChromeVox Next can enhance the Chromebook user experience
   for people with vision loss.

   In this article, we'll focus on electronic magnifier products with the
   goal of helping you identify the features you need, and answering the
   question: given so many options, who needs a standalone electronic
   magnifier, anyway?

   Rasha Said, App Creator and Founder of Sensible Innovations, by Aaron
   Preece

   - Book Review: Getting Started with the iPhone and iOS 9: Step-by-Step
   Instruction for Blind Users, by Anna Dresner, by Deborah Kendrick
   <http://afb.us11.list-manage.com/track/click?u=bd3c8fefc9f905f5ccf41c577&id=e3038ed672&e=0122cec033>

   National Braille Press and Anna Dresner have, once again, produced a
   manual that many blind and low vision iOS device users will find
   indispensable as a guide for learning or refining their understanding of
   the iPhone and iOS 9. The book is wonderfully organized and blissfully
   clear.
