Somehow I missed this when it came out. Stanley Sakai is working on a free app called Aloft. Basically it assists with streaming services. A quick summary from their page is that it offers more options, and especially makes the already-available options for text and font easier to use so that people of varying sensory needs can be met.
You can read all about it here, or skip down to the bottom to just try it out. Honestly, spread the word. Apparently Aloft is open source, which means the more people know about it, the more people can work on it, and the more it’ll take off and improve.
Big props to Stanley Sakai and everyone working on the code of this project. It is a huge addition to the field.
Full disclosure, I haven’t utilized it yet, but I just might give it a try in the next week or so.
I did try the software after posting, but in my ineptness I could not get it to work. As of October 2020, the aloft.nu website appears down. This post remains up to memorialize the program / monitor updates.
