Podcasting News.




@Podder is a free podcast client designed for the visually impaired.


It features large fonts and high-contrast themes, few buttons/no menus, tooltip and text-to-speech reading of podcast and feed descriptions, speech tracking of download progress and reading off screen functions.


@Podder is designed for Windows users with some vision impairment but not blindness, e.g. macular degeneration, myopia, or light sensitivity.


Special features include HTML output for sharing and cataloging podcasts and for linking show notes.


The aPodder site also has a catalog of vision-related podcasts and initial podcasts in a series "As Your World Changes".
