People with vision problems will be able to more easily use the inflight entertainment system on Virgin Australia’s Boeing 777 and Airbus A330 aircraft thanks to new software heralded as a first for the Asia-Pacific.The Australian carrier is only the second in the world to introduce a special user interface to help vision-impaired passengers access inflight entertainment.The interface, designed by CoKinetic Systems, features big icons that are easier to recognise and use and is already available on Virgin Boeing 777-300ER aircraft used on long-haul routes to Los Angeles. It will also be rolled out on its Airbus A330 aircraft used primarily on domestic trans-continental routes to the West Australian capital of Perth.The airline consulted with an Australian disability advocate, Philip Chalker, to design the interface and a Virgin spokeswoman said cabin crew would help vision impaired people set it up.“The way it’s been designed is the iconography is really large,’’ the spokeswoman said. “So it’s a lot clearer and the basic colours that have been used allow vision-impaired … people to see it a lot easier.”The home screen on the interface gives people access to TV, movies, the flight map as well as music and audiobooks.The feature is the latest move by Virgin to improve accessibility to its entertainment system.This includes closed captions and subtitles for passengers with hearing disabilities available not just on the airline’s IFE system but on the wireless system that allows people travelling on its single-aisle jets to access entertainment on their own devices.Vision-impaired passengers can also use their own screen reader software with the wireless IFE system.Vision Australia general manager for advocacy and engagement Karen Knight commended the airline for its move to improve IFE accessibility.“Many people who are blind or have low vision enjoy travel and travel widely, and by Virgin Australia continuing to improve the accessibility of its IFE technology guests have the opportunity to enjoy the latest entertainment,” she said.
Attention was the new currency, said Linah Maigurira, one of the speakers at the National Small Business Chamber Summit. For brands to get customers, they had to pay attention to consumers’ behaviour and be where they were.Linah Maigurira of Google South Africa says engagement on social media with consumers is important. “Invite your audience to connect.” (Image: National Small Business Chamber, Facebook)Melissa JavanGrabbing the attention of consumers online was vital for your brand, Linah Maigurira, the industry manager of Google South Africa, said at the National Small Business Chamber Summit, held on 15 and 16 February 2017 in Midrand, Johannesburg.Maigurira was one of the speakers who shared valuable knowledge and expertise with the more than 30,000 attendees.The National Small Business Chamber (NSBC) said that by 7 February, a total of 32,127 people had registered for the conference. Of them, 14,806 were existing business owners and 17,321 were about to start a business.Nadia Malan and Erick Letshwene of Easy Debit at the NSBC Summit business expo in February 2017.

(Image: Melissa Javan)The summit also hosted the My Business Expo, Business Start-Up Expo, Access to Finance Indaba, The Franchise Show and Trading Across Borders.Is your business mobile-ready?Maigurira spoke about rethinking marketing for the digital age. She said that customers no longer went online – they lived online. “Audiences are looking for authentic connections.”Customers were increasingly mobile, she added. For example, 55% of queries to Google came from smartphones. “Use technology and make sure your business is mobile ready.”In addition, consumers were more empowered. “They are doing preliminary research, narrowing down people or brands they might buy from.” She gave statistics, including that 73% of South Africans found information of a brand online, and 88% had discovered products or a brand online.Be visible onlineMaigurira’s advice to entrepreneurs was that they should be present where their customers hung out online. “Be there when they (the consumers) are searching and browsing for ideas. Decide on the moments you are going to claim for your business.” For consumers, those moments included “I want to know”; “I want to buy”; and “I want to find”.“Think about your customers, their needs and how you are going to capture them,” she said.The role of social mediaLeanne Rhodes, head of creative and social media at the NSBC, spoke on the topic: “Fast-track your business success with social media”.Leanne Rhodes, head of creative and social media at the NSBC, says business owners and brands should tell their stories on social media. “Nothing beats passion. Social media is word of mouth with a microphone.” (Image: Melissa Javan)Social media gave you access to a large audience on a shoestring budget, Rhodes said. The NSBC didn’t use traditional advertising for the summit; instead, it mainly used social media and its newsletter.She warned though that social media could be overwhelming. “Remember social media is only free if you don’t value your time. Clarify how much time you are willing to spend on social media per week. Set a timer if you have to.“Clarify what you want to achieve and who your audience is. Who would you like them to become?”Entrepreneurs should think about how they wanted their audience to think and feel, Rhodes said. “If you have given them what they want, you can sell to them what they need.”Other information she gave included how the Facebook algorithm worked. Not many of your followers would see your posts unless they had great engagement. “Great images and videos are seen by more people on Facebook. So make use of video and creative visuals.”It took three seconds to get someone’s attention on social media, Rhodes said. “Give people something that they won’t get anywhere else. Facebook Live, for example, is getting seen by more and more people.”More about the NSBCThe chamber was established in 2007 as a non-profit membership organisation. It fuels small business growth.Pride Maloba and Mothusi Kibe of Easy Biz Quickbooks exhibit their business at the NSBC Summit Business Expo, in February 2017.

Former Pakistan captain Moin Khan believes the present national team has the firepower to break its World Cup jinx against India and register the country’s maiden win over the neighbours in the upcoming ICC 50-over mega-event in the UK.In six times in the World Cup so far, Pakistan have never defeated India. And India and Pakistan will meet again in the World Cup at Old Trafford on June 16.”This present team is very capable of recording a first win over India in a World Cup because there is talent, there are depth and variety and Sarfaraz Ahmed has now gelled the squad well,” Moin said on GTV News channel on Tuesday.Pakistan confident after Champions Trophy win vs India?Moin, who featured in many famous matches against India and was a member of the 1992 and 1999 World Cup teams, said this time he is confident of Pakistan win.”I say this because our boys beat them (India) in the Champions Trophy two years back and I just feel that in English conditions in June we have better bowlers,” he said.Moin feels India and England would be the teams to beat in the World Cup.”This should be a very interesting World Cup and I am backing Pakistan to beat India. Our boys are in good spirits and it is good they will go into the competition after having played ODI matches against South Africa, Australia, and England,” he said.He also supported the move to have three weeks training camp in England before the World Cup, saying this would help the players in acclimatising comfortably to the English conditions.advertisement”Pakistan has been one team which has done well in England in the last many years and in May-June the weather can be unpredictable and there is moisture in the pitches,” said Moin.Sarfraz racism incident blown out of proportion: MoinThe former Pakistan manager and chief selector also supported the return of Sarfaraz as captain for the World Cup.”I don’t know why all this fuss was made about the captaincy after the ban imposed on him for an incident blown out of proportion to my mind. I have seen Sarfaraz lead the team and I know since he was a junior and I have captained and coached him and I can tell you there is no better person to lead the Pakistan team than him now,” Moin said.Also Read | Lessons in cricket and babysitting: Rishabh Pant reacts to Virender Sehwag’s TV commercialAlso Read | England drop to No.5 in ICC Test rankings despite 232-run victory over West IndiesAlso Read | Pant, Rohit as openers for India in World Cup?

Rivaldo raps Barcelona for ignoring kidsby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Barcelona star Rivaldo says management should focus more on their La Masia academy.Rivaldo believes the club’s young players deserve a better chance at making it.Asked about Jeison Murillo’s signing and the possible arrivals of Adrien Rabiot (PSG) and Frenkie De Jong (Ajax), Rivaldo said Barca “should look more at La Masia and less outside the club. Murillo arrived, they’re talking about Rabiot and De Jong… in my opinion the club doesn’t need to reinforce from outside. “They have an excellent structure and should focus on moving through new young talents.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say
