This issue features:

   - Editor's Page: A Busy Time at *AccessWorld*
   - Advocating for Yourself in an Emergency Medical Situation: Advice for
   People with Visual Impairments, by Deborah Kendrick
   Even while rooted in a hospital bed, unable to move without assistance,
   we can still advocate for ourselves, control our own environments to a
   point, and thus maintain our independence. This article uses my experience
   to demonstrate how to advocate for yourself? while in a hospital setting
   - A Review of Manamon, an Audio-Based Role-Playing Game by VGStorm, by
   Aaron Preece

   Manamon is an excellent game for those who enjoy turn-based role-playing
   games. The game plays smoothly and the sound design is top-notch. Manamon
   customization is limited, which can make some of the minor balance issues
   problematic, but the developer continues to make improvements.
   - A Review of the Audio Tutorial for the Google Suite of Products by
   Mystic Access, by Bill Holton
   The step-by-step audio guidance works well. The tutorial does not strive
   to be comprehensive. Indeed, that would take a book several hundred pages
   long. What this tutorial aims to do, and in my opinion it succeeds
   admirably, is to offer a beginner's guide to these apps, giving you
   sufficient basic knowledge to venture forth on your own into the more
   advanced features.
   - There's No Place like Google Home: A Review of Google's Voice
   Assistant, by J.J. Meddaugh
   While my smartphone can do many of the same tasks that Google Home does,
   it's nice to have a machine that I can yell at wherever I am in my house,
   regardless of where my phone happens to be. The hands-free operation lets
   me set timers, read recipes, or call an Uber with little effort, making the
   device an integral part of my life.
   - CAPTCHA Be Gone from Accessible Apps Removes Another Barrier to
   Accessibility, by Jamie Pauls
   CAPTCHA Be Gone is an easy-to-use service that does exactly what it
   promises--it allows someone with a visual impairment to successfully enter
   the information requested by a CAPTCHA with a minimal amount of
   - Feel the Buzz of the BuzzClip, by Janet Ingber
   Wearable technology, such as the Apple Watch, is currently a big trend
   in consumer electronics, and the BuzzClip is a promising new entry in this
   market. This device can be a beneficial tool to increase independence for
   visually impaired travelers.
