On Tek Talk this week Rick Harmon will tell us all about the program Qwitter
used by blind individuals that use the micro blogging service Twitter.

Rick will walk us through using Qwitter to do several things with the
twitter service as well as discussing other services that Qwitter has to
offer such as searching with the Bing search session.

He will also discuss many of the great things this program can do on your PC
from inside any program as Qwitter has no program window that you have to
Alt – Tab to in order to use. Ease of use is what has drawn so many blind PC
users to this wonderful program that continues to be developed. The current
version of Qwitter is 4.5.1 and can be downloaded via:

Qwitter runs on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 with all major screen
