Tech Talks ft Sharon Cooper

Sharon is the CDO at the British Medical Journal, the print publishing arm of the British Medical Association. Previously she held the title of CTO, but she doesn’t have a software/engineering background. We chat about her challenge to digitise the organisation, and how DevOps is making the BMJ safer!

Hat tip to M.G. Siegler for alerting us to the narrate feature in Firefox. To listen to a BMJ article in Firefox:

  1. Go to a BMJ article for example:
  2. Go to the Reader View by clicking on the Reader View reader mode icon 57 icon in the address bar
  3. Then click on the “Narrate” button on the left hand side
  4. Listen and visually follow along to the text. You can change the voice to have a British or American accent.
