“A challenge for anyone, after hearing an interesting question, is to not answer the question.” It’s not easy! It’s human nature to want to share what we experienced and learned on topics that impacted our lives“.
You have questions?
The Companion has answers. Just ask.
The Podcast Companion is about joining conversations in voice format with other listeners about the shows you love. It’s a device dedicated to the visually impaired or blind, exploring new ideas with new people, all through voice, always interactive. It is much simpler to use than a smart phone, so if you can work an old fashioned radio, you can work a Companion, which includes a touch sensitive button to help you navigate your way around your Companion’s menus. It doesn’t get much easier.
Power up the Companion and the most recent questions asked will start playing. Simply push the selector dial to answer (or listen to all answers, or create your own ask-all). Turn the dial to tune into the next ask-alls. There are an endless number of ask-alls & answers, endless number of conversations to join, and its easy to start your own thread.
From the podcast episodes feed, simply turn the dial to listen to different podcast titles.. From the podcast questions feed, turn the dial to browse through questions that are based on particular podcast episodes. If you like a question, press on the dial to listen to all the answers and/or add your own answer.
Everything feels like real time on the Podcast Companion. Record your answer, and it immediately joins the thread of other answers. Record your ask-all and it is immediately available for others to hear and answer. Listen to all answers, and it feels like everyone from around the world is in your living room at that moment.
You may be surprised, but if you put questions in voice in front of someone, and include a button to reply, lots of people who usually have nothing to say will record beyond the five minute audio chime.
Voice is authentic and intimate. Learn about ideas and people from the inside out, instead of outside in. Interact with someone based on who they are and what they say, instead of how they look, and you’ll discover a whole new world.
You can learn more about the Vorail App (IOS ONLY) by clicking here to get started, but the Companion is much more robust in its abilities to deliver questions and answers and take part in the podcast and other feeds.

The fine print.
Rotational arrows on the main dial are for illustrative purposes only to indicate that the main dial has a 360 degree rotation. Actual dial unit will just have the small arrow or dimple only to indicate its position.
