Posted in Apple Inc

May’s chat is right around the corner (scheduled for May 7th at 8:00PM EST), and we’re pleased to share the evening with our good friends from SpeedDots, who you’ll recognize as the makers of the popular tactile screen protector for iOS gadgets. But wait–there’s a little something special in store for chat participants that night…

Get Connected Through AFB’s Message Boards

Posted in Apple Inc

In the era of a constantly connected world that we all are living in I believe that it is vitally important for all of us whether
or not we are a blind person that is a social butterfly, or if you are like a lot of blind people you just like to stay in your comfort zone, you do have the opportunity to connect with others over the Internet. Having said this I read this article recently on the AFB blog and I wanted to share it with the Fedora Outlier community. I hope that you all enjoy it.
