FAQ
Q) Why are there comments from a week ago when this video has just gone live today?
A) Patrons usually have early access to videos. I'll show the first version of a video on Patreon and often the feedback I get results in a video going through further revisions to improve it. e.g. Fix audio issues, clarify points, add extra footage or cut extraneous things out. The video that goes live on youtube is the final version.

Q) Why weren’t the controls labeled with Braille?
A) If something is used regularly - operating it becomes second nature. ‘Light Switch’ isn’t written above a light switch - and yet it’s possible to turn one on in the dark. There would be an introduction and orientation session with the machine - it wouldn’t just turn up in the post. So someone would sit you down - here on the left that’s the rewind and play - up for play down for rewind, give it a go, you hear how it works right? Good, got that? Now on the right you can feel those dials - this one here is the volume and this is the tone - give them a go, you can hear how they change the sound - yep, right on to the track selector, that’s this one in the middle....
