AntennaPod, Accessible, Feature Packed And Open Source

Welcome to another midweek bonus episode of the Blind Tech Guys. We appreciate you taking the time out of your day to check out this episode of the show.

Nimer and Marco interviewed Koen, a volunteer on the open-source AntennaPod podcast client for Android project. Did you know that the developer of AntennaPod decided to fix accessibility challenges which were reported by other blind users as a result of enabling Talkback and trying out AntennaPod blindfolded? Learn more about AntennaPod, their efforts towards accessible design, and more by listening to this interview.


App Demo

Following the interview, Nimer demonstrated how to join the AntennaPod beta, as well as the interface of this app. While there are a few challenges accessing chapter markers, we discovered that it is doable, and the rest of the app is quite accessible and full of customization options.
