SSB is on Audioboom
Share! Connect! Succeed!
What's Audioboom, you're wondering?
It's an app and social networking site that connects people through everything audio: podcasts, audio clips, voice messages, personal recordings and more. The content that SSB is putting up on Audioboom is also available as a text transcript.
You can check us out on one of our three channels:
- BATeencast is a place where Minnesota young adults who are blind, DeafBlind, or experiencing vision loss can come together to share ideas, tell their stories, and download podcasts on everything from landing that first summer internship to figuring out the world of assistive tech. You'll also find interviews with Minnesotans who are blind, DeafBlind, or who have low vision and how they've managed the world of work or school. It's a place to connect, to learn, and to be heard!
- RTB features the podcasts produced by the folks at the Radio Talking Book. It's our curated collection of articles on finding a job, building your career, and navigating the world of work and school with a vision loss. Many of these podcasts share the stories of people who are blind, DeafBlind or visually impaired who are out achieving their goals. You'll also find plenty of podcasts there that speak directly to the experience of being a young adult.
- Blind Abilities is an open mic for social and thought provoking conversations by Adults, Teens, and Teachers of the Blind and visually impaired. It is based in Minnesota and has a global reach. Oh, and it's also a place to have a bit of fun along the way.
