Technology Creates Endless Possibilities

“For people without disabilities, technology makes things easier. For people with disabilities, technology makes things possible.” ~Mary Pat Radabaugh.

Blurred image of an open laptopI am so grateful to have the opportunity to learn new things every day. Take a recent article I wrote the other day focused on how I use my computer. In response to my post fellow blogger, David Goldfield of Thoughts from David Goldfield directed me to a very comprehensive FAQs he wrote on this topic.

What I like most about David’s article, How Does a Blind Person Use a Computer or Smartphone, Anyway? is the way he explains not only the ‘what’ but the ‘how’ of assistive technology for a person who is blind or has low vision. When you have a moment pop into David’s place to check it out. He also encourages additional questions he may have missed.

Have A Happy Hump Day!!

  1. Steph, I’m a bit blown away at the mention you gave to my FAQ. I just expected a passing reference. Thank you so much.
    The capabilities that we have with today’s mobile apps are absolutely staggering. I use my phone for just about everything: reading books, watching TV, listening to the radio, reading news, identifying money, etc. Oh, and let’s not forget making and receiving phone calls.

    1. You are most welcome David. I enjoy sharing the work of others especially when it involves awareness on issues related to disabilities. I was just taking with another friend of mine today about how great technology is. She even observed how Siri, Alexa and Cortana were embraced but not really seen as tools of accessibility.

  2. I just got an app for my phone for magnifying things. Thanks for the details of how you do things.

    1. Cool. I have a magnifying app as well which allowed me to donate my video magnifier. It seems like everyday there are newer and better apps to make life easier.
