One for +Allison Sheridan and probably not a lot of other people.

I stumbled across this pretty nifty Google resource for selecting a colour palette for your designs. It's intended for use with the Google Material design language for Android apps, but it'll work for any basic colour palette you need to employ, such as in a presentation.

Best of all, it includes an accessibility page which will tell you how to create text that will be legible.

A brief update to my BeatsX review.

I geeked out a bit yesterday. Blame the internet.

If you're a bit of a math nerd, you might enjoy it.

NosillaCast across the pond, as it were.

I have a miniature review of using the Apple Watch Series 2 for swim workouts, I’ll quickly review 26 Mac Apps you didn’t know you already had, Allison will pop by with two more videos from the CSUN Assistive Technology Conference, I’ll make some recommendations for podcasts you might want to listen to that aren’t about technology, Terry delivers on his callout from Allison with a review of GhostReader text to speech software, and I’ll finish up with a review of the BeatsX Bluetooth earbuds with Apple W1 chip.

The final content for my week in charge, from +Terry Vogelaar. Just wait until you hear the recorded version of this review – it's quite something! (Podcast coming later today.)

Now is an appropriate time to share that there will be no Chit Chat Across the Pond this week. Unfortunately, the scheduling gods were not in my corner this time around.

To somewhat make up for missing out, I’d like to bring the following TEDx video to your attention. There has been a wee bit of a buzz at work lately about Design Thinking.

In this TEDx MidAtlantic video, Elise Roy talks about losing her hearing as a child and how she now considers her disability to be the best thing that’s ever happened to her. She describes Design Thinking and how it can enable innovation that not only benefits the disabled but everyone.

It’s well worth thirteen minutes and seventeen seconds of your time.

Allison interviews Frank Jones and Yvonne Felix from eSight about their new eSight 3 glasses composed of a wearable headmounted display and camera system that allows people with certain types of low vision to see better. The camera processes imagery, enhances it and displays the image on the inside of the glasses in a manner that is easier for the vision impaired user to see. The setting is the Grand Hyatt Hotel in San Diego.
