Yeah so... If anyone was hoping for indivisible accessibility so much for that. I can't say I'm surprised that's how it ended though, it's more or less what I expected after the first messages about Mike.
Indivisible development stops after Lab Zero fallout: https://bit.ly/34W6t6P
I hate when companies do stupid shit like this. Spotify updated their terms forbidding apps from using their API from transfering libraries into competing services, probably to make it less likely for people to try to switch away. Monopolistic much?. https://songshift.com/blog/spotify_transfers
I'm legitimately curious just how good this actually is. If you play guitar you should test this.

We learned from the pandemic. We knew what we needed stockpiles of, whether due to actual or perceived shortages. We developed mitigations.
And new products.
A way to can your scent, to send those who miss you. Recordings of touches and hugs.
We won't run out of essentials again.

Alon features I love continued: You can set it up to auto-record at startup, do voice activation recording and turn iOS processing (though this also kills stereo). Finally, to get your data off, you can either use a built-in web server, iCloud, iTunes sharing, various other clouds or my personal favorite, any ftp/WebDav server. This means I can have this thing sync with my selfhosted Cloud, and it even makes folders for the categories I mentioned earlier automatically. This thing is great!
In my quest for trying all the recording apps that support the new iPhone stereo recording capabilities I just tried and instantly fell in love with Alon MP3 dictaphone. It's one of those apps that is way too configurable for its own good, but this also makes it really powerful. Some highlights: For the stereo recording, you can force it to a specific orientation. You can record up to 32-bit. You can set up categories for your recordings and then move them between them before or after recording.
Oh, one more thing ( pun not intended ). Voiceover not reading the total track time on the lock screen is not a bug. Those controls got redesigned and its gone for sighted people too. The Internet has a love hate relationship with the visual changes.
In all seriousness though yeah, this beta is soooo much better.
Are you in a lot of WhatsApp groups where people send long voice messages and you want to speed them up? Turns out there's a chrome extension for that for WhatsApp web! It'll add a speed button below the message field. May need a click to work. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/whatsapp-audio-speed/ceidoienoamaoajmeobmfbcndkehmlbg/
This is an interesting read. Apparently, the accessibility problems and complexity of Gutenberg was quite a contributing factor to this.

RIP. They had some cool ideas with it too, like from what I heard the way it does custom actions was far better than how Talkback does now. We can only hope that Google makes that suck less now that it has multifinger gestures but I'm not holding my breath
Looks like Voice Assistant on Samsung devices will be no more folks...

For anyone considering buying an apple watch now that it works with braille, it's worth noting that not all displays that work with iOS work with it. I was able to pair a Hims display no problem, but pairing a 5th gen Focus results in a device not supported error, though this may have been fixed in the GM release. I also heard orbits work fine. So it may be necessary to crowd source a list of compatible displays or wait for apple to publish a list.
There has to be a happy medium between the corporate "let's maintain everything forever, yay 20 more years of IE" and the open-source "let's release breaking changes every Tuesday just for fun." But I don't think we're there.
