Today I want to take you on a journey. Sorry, or should I say, thankfully, not my life’s journey, just the simple daily journey of my commute to work. Other than by my wonderful Guide Dog Earl, the successful navigation of each of the legs of my journey was improved by some kind of assistive tech in the environment. I used the Olympus DN-5 Voice Recorder
to capture my walk to the train, than bus ride and finally my arrival at work. I hope you enjoy the soundscapes ranging from an early morning walk along the lake to a bus ride with an overly exuberant driver.
