Disappointingly, this app still has a long way to go in order to be fully accessible, and the team would certainly appreciate the opportunity to interview the developer of Alpha Backup pro so we can go about discussing what changes we would like made and to explain to him the importance of accessibility and why this is such a vital component to blind and visually-impaired users. Check out the app on the Playstore. Listener EmailsWe received two very thought-provoking listener emails this week and the team appreciates each of you for taking the time to ask your questions and we hope that we managed to answer them to your satisfaction.ConclusionTo get in touch, send us an email to blindtechguyspodcast@gmail.comIn order to support the show, please share this podcast, and subscribe using your favourite podcatcher.

Hello everyone and welcome to this week's bonus episode of the Blind Tech Guys.On this episode, Nimer and Marco sat down with Mark Muscat and Dr. Scott Hollier for a chat on accessibility, WCAG, and whether we are moving in the right direction with making the web and PDF documents truly accessible.Dr. Hollier and Mark introduced themselves, and discussed their experience in the accessibility field.Marco and Nimer took turns asking questions about a number of topics including:WCAG and its purpose,How valuable is WCAG at making sure companies’ web presence is accessible,How do individuals receive training in WCAG,How do companies locate individuals to hire who are trained in WCAG and other accessibility best practices,And what kind of enforcement exists in the U.S. and Australia which mandates companies comply with WCAG, as well as what Mark and Dr. Hollier think works to get companies to comply.This was certainly an interesting conversation. For instance, did you know that in many countries, there are no laws to legislate web accessibility?We want to thank Dr. Scott Hollier and Mr. Mark Muscat for agreeing to discuss this interesting topic with us and the team appreciates you giving up your valuable time in order to be a part of this week's bonus show.ConclusionTo get in touch, send us an email to blindtechguyspodcast@gmail.comIn order to support the show, please share this podcast, and subscribe using your favourite podcatcher.
