Reid My Mind Radio – The Gatewave Triple Double

July 22nd, 2015  / Author: T.Reid

The third appearance on Gatewave Radio is definitely a charm for Richie Tienter and his Mom Anne. This is my third time getting to speak with them both and it's always a pleasure...This time the focus is on the National Braille Challenge in California. Richie was invited; listen to how he did, but as usual with these two, there's more to the story.

Arron's ability to compete with athletes without disabilities has brought some to credit his success to what they consider to be his edge; "The Blind Advantage."

Reid My Mind Radio – I Do It My Way

June 25th, 2015  / Author: T.Reid

"Now usually I don't do this, but..."

Today, I'm taking you on an audio tour of my production process. This is not a tutorial, just a look at how I produce non visually! A Picture of my desk with audio equipment including mixer, midi keyboard, turntable...

Shout out to my daughter Raven for the photo, her cameo in this piece and her featured clarinet playing!

Since the idea for this piece came from a suggestion, I thought I would invite more… If there’s anything that you want to know about or think would make for a good story topic go ahead and suggest it in the comments. If you’re interested I could even include you in the piece! For those who are shy, no worries, you can say no to that with no hard feelings.

Now on to the show... [soundcloud url="https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/211655006" params="auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true" width="100%" height="450" iframe="true" /]

Reid My Mind Radio – The Braille Captel Phone

June 17th, 2015  / Author: T.Reid

Telephone technology in its basic form hasn't really changed since its inception. Two people speak to one another on each end of the line. Of course we have wireless phones, cell phones and internet based phones, but the basic idea is still the same...two people speak with one another. Ultratec, a technology company changed this when they introduced the CapTel phone opening this communication to those with hearing loss. What about those with both hearing and vision loss? Ultratec has just introduced the Braille CapTel.

Listen below and help spread the word about this device that can really present improved communication possibilities for an entire community.
