Want a Text Radio for Your iPad or iPhone? Dr. Z Makes a Discovery!

Radio? That’s the last thing that comes to mind for a deaf person. Text radio? Not a bad idea–it’s visible radio…how can this be done?

Dr. Z found a cool iOS app called TwitterTicker ($1.99 at the iTunes Store)

Set it up with your Twitter feeds–news, sports, weather, deaf community blogs, etc.

Select the feed with the app and the tweets will appear on a page by itself for several seconds before going on to the next one.

Presto! It’s a radio, sort of!

(DO NOT USE IT IF YOU ARE THE DRIVER–DR. Z ASSUMES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE IRRESPONSIBLE USE OF TEXTING WHILE DRIVING.)

But it can keep you occupied as a passenger or while you are working in the kitchen. Try it–it will blow your mind!

By the way, if you need to make video calls, there’s Z5 Mobile…

Of course, this is the best video communication app. Dr. Z uses it with a 4G connection on the road and it works beautifully. Need I say more? Leave the Z5 Mobile on all the time and use it to make VRS calls, point to point, FaceTime and send text messages from just one contact list!

For more information on the Z5 Mobile for iPhone and iPad, click this link.

Dr. Z is proud to be part of the team that understands and listens to the needs of the deaf and hard of hearing community!

Dr. Z cares about your communication access.

Try Z5 Mobile and TwitterTicker, you will LOVE it, just like Dr. Z!

Disclosure: Dr. Z (Philip W. Bravin) is associated with CSDVRS, currently its Vice-President of Business Development
