The text printed by Pintos inside Bochs probably went by too quickly toread. However, you've probably noticed by now that the same text wasdisplayed in the terminal you used to run pintos. This isbecause Pintos sends all output both to the VGA display and to the firstserial port, and by default the serial port is connected to Bochs'sstdin and stdout. You can log serial output to a file byredirecting at thecommand line, e.g. pintos run alarm-multiple > logfile.
The pintos program offers several options for configuring thesimulator or the virtual hardware. If you specify any options, theymust precede the commands passed to the Pintos kernel and be separatedfrom them by --, so that the whole command looks likepintos option... -- argument.... Invokepintos without any arguments to see a list of available options.Options can select a simulator to use: the default is Bochs, but--qemu selects QEMU. You can run the simulatorwith a debugger (see section E.5 GDB). You can set the amount of memory to givethe VM. Finally, you can select how you want VM output to be displayed:use -v to turn off the VGA display, -t to use yourterminal window as the VGA display instead of opening a new window(Bochs only), or -s to suppress serial input from stdinand output to stdout.
iPhones make great accessible media players. It's one less device you need to carry around, and with a Wi-Fi or cell data connection you are always just a few double-taps away from the latest books, news, and entertainment. More and more, I find myself accessing the latter two via the ever-growing number and quality of downloadable podcasts. I subscribe to nearly a hundred different feeds, from 99% Invisible to WTF with Mark Maron, and Downcast, my podcast player of choice, is without doubt the most frequently used app on my iPhone.
Recently, a new iOS podcast player app has begun to make a name for itself within the accessibility community. It's called Overcast, from Overcast Radio, LLC, and it's from Marco Arment, co-founder of Tumblr and creator of Instapaper. I decided to have a look for myself, both at its functionality and its accessibility. Here's what I found.
After creating an account, you are given the opportunity to import your subscription list from any other podcast client already installed on your device. Select your existing player and the app will give you instructions on how to export the OPML file from that player and send it to Overcast, which will then subscribe you to those feeds and begin auto-checking for new episodes.
Played episodes are removed from your player automatically. There are two ways to delete a partially played or unwanted episode using VoiceOver. With the title highlighted, double-tap on the screen, swipe left, and then double-tap the delete button. You can also swipe to or single-tap the line above the episode title, which provides the episode's running time and publication date, perform a one-finger-swipe-up gesture, then use the rotor's Action menu to delete the episode the same way you would clear an e-mail.
There are a few places in this app where the two-finger scrub gesture does not work, and you need to find the actual Back button to exit a screen. Other than that, I could find no VoiceOver snags or unlabeled buttons or controls. The layout is easy to navigate and intuitive, with only one exception that I could find. In the player screen of certain video podcasts, there is an extra button that displays the length of the podcast. If you get curious and double-tap this link you will wind up beginning a second playback of the episode, at which time the two-finger play/stop gesture will not pause playback, it will toggle you back and forth between the two playback sessions.
When it comes to product evaluations, the September issue has that covered as well. In this issue, learn about the Overcast podcast player app for iOS, Spotify Free and Songza music player apps for iOS, the Focus Blue 40 braille display, and the joys and challenges of running Windows on a Mac. 2b1af7f3a8
