Hello and welcome to issue fifty of theKvin Se Cha podcast, I'm Sam Peten, and once again, I'm joined by my colleague,Marcoin Himark. I sum and welcome everyone to issue fifteen. Yet Wat anEXCITIN issue. We've got a head. Things are easing at me in the outsideworld, lockdown he's easy n over the coming MONTHSO. Hopefully a lot of uswill be getting out and about a lot more, which leads onto our first topicof the day. Doesn't it Bark Yeah? So we've been thinking about thisidea of being able to get around a little bit more and what is it that youuse from a a mobility? At point of view, I'm BIGIN TO MY MOBIL TO GEPS APS atthe minute mark, I'm an iphone youse. So on Ios, my personal choice would beapple maps and another at Covinal Vate, both of which offer Edestrian or opublic transport versions of how to get FOM A to be the inclume favor, afavorite section. They've got BASAC you...

...journey planning, they're, just absolutely fantastic andeven like nortifications of when your stops approaching. When you are on abus- and you can't see it coming so in terms of giving people independenceabsolutely brilliant and the best thing about those two APPS is the freeanother one to mention is an upcalled soundscape Bugo, no, that another freebe available in the UPSTAR, which is it's not a GPS, APP in itself Ar Surchit's more of an overlay. So if you're already using a commaps on mov, you canuse sound stape over the top and it'll give you just extra information so places of no businesses that are in that locality,etc that maybe thit's the left, Eright or in front of you O. It's just a a bitof extra knowledge of what is around you. What about you mark? What do youfind? An android is useful. Well, one of the APPS that we've been talkingabout on our anything android group is Lanzerillo, so quite a few of us noware trying that out and again, that's...

...very, very useful in that you can walkaround and it will tell you what is that around you and you can set it aswell to filled Herso. For example, if you just want to find restaurants, O yojust wanted to find a bank for agument sake ar a certain type of stall, youcan set it just to filter on to that particular type of business, and it does work very wellwith Google Mams Inde. It can integrate with Google maps again. This idea, asyou've mentioned just have very often putting the two apps together, can getsome very, very good results and andlazarilla is available for Ios aswell, and we also mentioned movit because again move it, as you say, isreally really useful for doing that. Extrabit of the journey with withpublic transport definitely- and I believe, you've got some MARTEC Cupdates for us as well Mac. I certainly have got some more tack updates andwe've got one actually. That is just literally of the press. I would justcome off one of our Kvan zoom event and...

...where this has been brought to ournotice, so I've literally got something that is so hot of the press. I onlyfound out about it twenty five minutes ago, so owers OOUR tack, updates. Thenthis week sees the launch of product called Real Sam Speaker. Now some ofyou might be familiar with the puduct called in your pocket, whichessentially is a mobile phone that gives access to lots of differentservices from different books and talking magazines to the ability tohave navigation as well. Now, real SOM in your pocket is something that'sliterally just launching this week and it's going to work initially with theGoogle Smart Speaker. Hopefully it would be working with the A lady in acouple of months time, but what it will do is it will give you the ability toask the smart speaker to access a range of different audio books and what thehoping to do as well is integrate...

...information from local sitelossorganizations, which will be really neat in the sense that you can ask itwhat it is going on with the assigtemy Sol commiisation in your local area.They are going to be coming to talk to us on our zoom chats in April and willhopefully have access to information in much more detail about that very, veryshorly and we'll put some further information, and hopefully ademonstration out for you as well on that one. One of the things that we'vebecome aware of over the last couple of weeks is that there's been at update akindle and that's causing issues for one or two people in that it stopskindle talking. It stops voice view from working. So that's been an issuefor one or two people. We have got a a fix for that now, so if people arehaving difficulty with the kindle and with voice view once it's updated, doplease get in touch and will be able to share with you the strategy for forfixing that so the hot of the press,...

HAP is something called Sullivan plus.So it's a word Sulliben and then the plus sine- and this is a new AP thats,the same sort of idea, a seeing a I or invision a I or Google look out theones that you'r here is talking about all the time, except this seems to do alot more different things. It's got the standard sex recognition and facerecognition. It's got image description. It's got document recognition, colorrecognition. It will tell you whether lights are on or off it's got a builtin manifire. It's got TA PDF reader. But what is quite smart about it is ithas an artificial intelligence mode, so it will make the choice for you about.What's the best thing to do in that situation, so you might have something:that's a a seeme where there's some...

...text in there and something that needsdescribing as well so Sullivan plus will put the link to it in thedescription. It's it's a new one to try and will review it and see how it goeson. So that's an update from what's happening in the Zack world. What'shappening in the world of Kvin SOM. We have got a seriously busy month comingup mark to start off with, we've got another list of get speakers joining usfor our special Zals. So, on the tenth we have a visit from pramit.

We also have on the twenty fifth andother stams awarenness session, withtrading standards and on the thirty first we have our local identic ays onoffice and Nicki is joining us for some sitless related advice and with someexciting news in terms of something...

...very special with the Zoom itself aswell Im wa, we have on the twenty faith of the month. It would be a one yearanniversary for basically holding zooms, which we started. Obviously, when thefirst lockdown kicked in so somewhere around that date, we would be havingsome sort of celebration to keep your eyes on our Social Meidea to see what'shappening with that, it's all in the pipeline nothing's being disclosed.
