I always have said that those who believe they can change the world will and those that don’t won’t.

Simply an amazing interview of an amazing guy who really is changing the world.

Let me count the ways…

Fedora Outlier LLC Blazes a Trail in Assistive Technology Teaching for the Blind and Deaf-Blind with its iOS Master Series

March 8, 2015


Fedora Outlier LLC, a nationally recognized firm of all blind and low-vision team members, announces the iOS Master Series with Access Touch.

Fedora raises the bar for both the blind and deaf-blind with its signature Access Touch feature for the iOS Master Series. Produced for Fedora Outlier by iHabilitation Canada, Access Touch is an optional tactile enhancement to the

Scheduled for release at 7 pm on March 15th (VaShaun’s birthday!), this is the same best-in-class assistive technology teaching that subscribers to the Mac Master Series have come to love, now expanded and packaged for iOS users.

Damashe Thomas and Brie Rumery, the coaches inside the iOS Master Series, will coach each member from the basics on up to mastery.

Each member will have access to:

  • Weekly modules to walk through performing a task on the device
  • Monthly live classes designed to help members move quickly to their goal
    of mastery
  • Community help and support from the community forum
  • The Ask A Coach feature to get help when it’s needed within 24 hours of submission
  • Weekly quick tips and tricks to aid in exposure of a new feature or app
  • The optional Access Touch component where feeling what your screen is visually displaying

Sulaimon Salam Bamidele known as THE GREAT SSB is from Nigeria. He’s in the states on a Visa. His story is so captivating I had to capture it.

This guys story is simply a miracle!

He says that challenges in life are inevitable, but failure is a choice.

Dive in, but before you do you should know that listening will remove any thought of you failing at anything ever again…
