Summary: Accessible is a fortnightly—episodes are released twice per month—podcast about accessibility in tech. Topics covered on the show are mostly Apple-centric but will span the tech industry at large where appropriate. The show is hosted by Steven Aquino and Timothy Buck from San Francisco.
Steven and Timothy talk about their impressions so far of the iOS 12 beta, Steven's new Kindle Paperwhite, the accessible packaging of Microsoft's upcoming adaptive Xbox controller, and how to attract disabled people to beta-test accessibility features in apps.
Steven and Timothy are joined by special guest Aleen Simms. Topics include diversity in tech and the disabled, the representation/discussion of diversity and accessibility on tech podcasts and in the tech media, the importance of accessible design in software, and more.
Steven and Timothy reunite this fortnight to reflect on their blockbuster WWDC episode, ruminate on their favorite announcements from WWDC, and partake in their first-ever after-show episode for Patreon supporters.
Recorded inside Apple's Podcasts studio at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, Steven interviews three special guests about their work and what Apple's announcements mean for accessibility. He sat down with Apple's Senior Director of Global Accessibility Policy & Initiatives, Sarah Herrlinger, AssistiveWare CEO David Niemeijer, and WWDC18 student scholarship winner John Ciocca.

At long last, here it is: Accessible is back! In this precursor to the first real episode, Steven and Timothy get together to introduce themselves and set the tone for the show. Topics include their vision for the show, the history of the show's original run, and why accessibility matters and why the tech community should pay more attention to it in their coverage and analysis of tech news.
