So there was mention in a comment thread about getting pictures of another dog who is at school right now, for her puppy raiser. Carin asked if my phone has a camera, and it does but it shuts down my screen reader. I got to thinking that I’d really rather get video while I’m at school, because while pictures are nice for sighties, they don’t really do much for me, and videos have audio.
I’ve thought about how, in the future, I’d do pictures, how to keep track of what is what since you can’t label them when you take them, and what a holy pain in the butt it would be, not to mention how hard it would be to be sure to get the dog in the frame.
So I started looking at those USB video cameras that have gotten popular with the birth of youtube, but none of them had great reviews and I don’t know enough about cameras anyway.
Then I remember B telling me the latest iPods take video now. How I didn’t know this, I have no idea. So I went and looked up the iPod Nano 5G and wow. They sure do take video! And with spoken menus, it should be accessible. It works just like all other iPod functions, using the center button to start and stop video taping. Since the menus are spoken, I can just scroll to video and whamo. I might even be able to add effects lol!
So, I broke my Amazon rule and ordered one yesterday. If it works the way I hope, it’ll be perfect. My cats can be test subjects while I’m playing with it, which means I’ll ahve video of them to take with me.
So, for you folks who have uploaded videos to Blogger, does it work ok? I don’t want the videos embedded because then they are not accessible to screen readers, at least not mine. Should I just make a youtube account?
It shipped today, so I should have it by the 27th. It’s coming USPS which sucks, but I got the free super saver shipping this time lol!
