DTD321Escape the Room

12/16/2017
More
Today’s skill, which is all about eventually extricating yourself from three precarious predicaments, is certainly somewhat on the creepy side (especially the car one) but captivating nevertheless. Perhaps ‘captivating’ wasn’t the best choice of word…

DTD320 Christmas Movie Quiz

12/15/2017
More
If you like your Christmas movies, then you’ll love this festive feast of Christmas questions. Today’s topic will really have you reaching for the remote and a mince pie and settling in for a night of Christmas classics.

DTD319 Emoji Fight

12/14/2017
More
Hmmmm - even though today’s skill has sound-effects galore it’s still a bit of a weird one and perhaps not everyone’s cup of tea. See what you think. If you like emoji (and perhaps fighting) you will probably want to give this one a go.

DTD318 Code Guess

12/13/2017
More
Today’s episode is probably, no definitely, the worst and most frustrating skill demo yet - and that’s saying something! So with that due warning please check out today’s skill that’s very similar to the Mastermind one we looked at a few days ago, but here you also get additional info about correct numbers that are in the wrong position. You’ll see what I mean - and then wish you hadn’t. I know you can record a better skill demo than this so please do so and send it to me at...

DTD317 Swimming on a Reef

12/12/2017
More
Yikes - I get into hot water in this choose-your-own-audio-adventure-game today! Moray eels and sharks galore. But don’t worry - extreme attitude in the face of adversity saves the day.

Duration: 00:10:06


DTD316 Snakes and Ladders

12/11/2017
More
It’s your classic Snakes and Ladders game played against the A-lady or else up to three friends. If you fall foul of a snake when landing on square 99 then please be gentle with your Echo.

DTD315 Christmas Facts and Festive Facts

12/10/2017
More
To random fact generating skills today but with a suitably festive theme. Did you know that Rudolph was an interloper or that Santa would have to visit 822 houses a second to get round to everyone on Christmas Eve? This is quality stuff!

Duration: 00:06:18


DTD314 Penalty Kick

12/9/2017
More
Take careful aim, choose the strength of your kick and any fancy tricks you want to try to incorporate into your shot, and then just give it some welly. See if you can get more than 1 out of 5…

Duration: 00:07:05


DTD313 Mastermind

12/8/2017
More
Do you remember this game by the same name from waaaaay back? There was a plastic board, coloured pegs to show your guessed sequence, and white pegs for the other guy to score your attempt to get it right. Oh those were the days…

Duration: 00:06:12


DTD312 Meditation Timer

12/7/2017
More
This is a simple skill that brings a timed dose of ambient relaxation. Set your timer and deep-dive into the lapping ocean surf or just lay back under the rainforest’s all-embracing canopy. Mmmmmmmm. All you need is a double dark-chocolate Bounty bar and this would be perfection.

Duration: 00:05:35


DTD311 Force Information

12/6/2017
More
Everything you ever wanted to know about the height, weight, eye-colour, length and maximum velocity etc of characters, vehicles and planets that populate the Star Wars universe are found in today’s skill. OK, stricktly speaking it won’t give Han Solos maximum velocity or the Millenium Falcon’s eye-colour, but, just like Luke when he toppled unconscious from his Tauntaun into the snow, you can’t help but get the drift.

DTD310 Christmas jokes and Christmas sounds

12/5/2017
More
Today we revisit the Christmas theme and suffer a few feeble festive jokes followed by a nice soundscape to get us in the mood for mince pies (I won’t tell you how many I’ve already eaten this year).

Duration: 00:08:52


DTD309 Question of the Day

12/4/2017
More
Now we can ask the A-lady for a question each day and, if we get it right, there’s often a bonus question too. Bit waffly but interesting nevertheless so why not give it a go?

Duration: 00:12:23


DTD308 Beauty Tips

12/3/2017
More
It’s our fantastic Faith to the rescue. She’s providing her expert grooming guidance to compliment the official pearls of wisdom dispensed by today’s Beauty Tips skill.

Duration: 00:15:20


DTD307 Science Challenge

12/2/2017
More
Into science? Want a challenge of the true-false, see-how-many-questions-you-can-get-right-before-losing-three-lives/your-mind kind? If so then today’s skill just might be somewhat suitable.

Duration: 00:04:49


DTD306 Advent Calendar and A-lady, please give me a Christmas song

12/1/2017
More
Today’s advent calendar skill is feeble in the extreme but, as I’ve been waiting till this morning (1 Dec) to record it, I had no idea and now we’re stuck with it! After that we try to redeem this episode with some A-lady Christmas songs and a quick consultation of Wikipedia, but I don’t think we quite manage it. Let’s face it - we’re way off.

Duration: 00:06:43


DTD305 The Daily 5/9

11/30/2017
More
Today special guest host, Holly Anderson, gives us a brilliant insight into the querky audio adventure game that is The Daily 5/9. I’m not familiar with the show Mr Robot (on which it’s based) - but that in no way means it isn’t on-air over here, although not yet available in the UK skill store. You can follow Holly on @DHSHolly and on the Maccessibility.net podcast. Thanks Holly and hope everyone enjoys todays episode.

DTD304 Say Your Cards Right

11/29/2017
More
Try to ignore the football noise in the background as we check out this groovy skill that harks back to the brilliant TV game of my childhood (so a very long time ago - but not quite in black and white) and, BTW, you enable it by saying “A-lady, enable Say Your Cards Right”. Forgot to mention that bit.

Duration: 00:05:24


DTD303 UK Music Chart

11/28/2017
More
Once again, brace yourself to experience yet more of my eye-watering ignorance of anything music-related. Faith’s heard of them all but yours-truly couldn’t name anyone in the charts - even if a whole packet of chocolate digestives was at stake. So don’t listen if you easily get cross at sheer stupidity. You have been warned.

Duration: 00:14:21


DTD302 Multi News and Sad Trombone

11/27/2017
More
The first of today’s skills is all about the news. Get it from circa 70 different sources. After that I completely fail to find a segue into the Sad Trombone skill (Wah, wah, wah, waaaaaah…)
