I am gauging support for assistance in getting an amazing IOS tutorial into audio.
Recently, Michael Fear released a guide called "personal power". It's an amazing compendium of knowledge that will really help people get from start to finish in the world of using their IOS device. For those who haven't heard, the link is here:
He has generously released this guide for free. It is available to anyone who would use it on the internet in several formats.
Unfortunately, none of these formats include audio. This is unfortunate because many people who may benefit from this knowledge may not be as familiar with how to use speech synthesizers, and would hugely benefit from a human recording of this guide.
A few notes before you read on:
1. This project is in no way affiliated with Michael. He has generously granted permission for anyone to redo the guide in any format to improve its accessibility, and I have corresponded with him yesterday and he has reaffirmed this.
2. Please take this down if it does not comply with appleVis guidelines. It was never my intention to break them.
I am currently working on a project to get this read. Although the person I am working with is not a professional voice, she has been a volunteer reader for me in the past and is very good at it.
Unfortunately, with a project of this size, financial compensation will be necessary. I am writing here to gauge interest to see who would be willing to contribute (financially or otherwise) to this project.
If you are interested, feel free to either comment on this thread, or if you do not feel comfortable, you can private message me through the AppleVis e-mail system.
I hope we can come together as a a community to make this resource available to even more people.
