Question for you! 🤔

Fedora has the unique opportunity to work with individuals, groups and communities around the world that have served our country both in war and in their civil duties.

Our veterans come back home and are often times disabled.

When this happens, we work with them to enhance their “quality of life”, but…

What does that mean exactly?

Everyone is different. Everyone has their own unique perspective on life and what the quality should be.

My question to you is…

When we say “quality of life”, what does that mean to you specifically?

Does that mean having employment, good health, creating music, making a movie or just being able to see your children and or grandkids grow up big and healthy?

Please, please take the survey below and give us some insight into your thoughts to this question.

We will be holding our monthly veterans technology webinar Friday, February 8th at 10am and we’ll be going over your replies to this one question survey on what quality of life means for everyone.

Wearable Tech Series: Tired of pricking your finger as a diabetic?

The world has changed forever for those of us that are blind and live with diabetes! Instead of sticking a needle in our fingers…

why not just use your iPhone to get your blood sugar readings?

The Freestyle Librelink sensor and an accessible app on your phone makes the old way of monitoring sugar levels a thing of the past.

Let’s discuss how the system works, see a demonstration and get informed.

Most importantly…

Let’s upgrade our quality of life!

We’re starting a new project here at Fedora where we share with you a different accessibility focused channel each month.

This month we’re featuring a long time client of the Fedora Family.

Leslie is a totally blind user from SC who has been working in accessibility for 10+ years.

She is also a long time friend and previous roommate to our website and marketing guru, Kristi.

They attended the South Carolina School for the Deaf and Blind together in high school and have worked on many accessibility projects together through out their 20 year friendship.

Leslie currently runs an up and coming YouTube channel called “Crazy Robot Lady” where she delves into the a multitude of interesting robots and how she interacts and navigates them as a blind user.

We’d love you to check it out!

Getting to the finish line verses pretending

Ever met one of those people who would rather take a picture of themselves at the finish line as if they actually ran the race? They want INSTANT success when it’s just not possible for most. Yup, I get it…

There are some who make it on the first try and we call them outliers.

Most of us make it after seval attemps at doing something and then maybe we might see a glimmer of success.

In this video I’ll share my biggest failure with my mindset and how I overcame it, but most importantly I will show you how to over come it as well.

The video is below. Remember to unmute it if it doesn’t play imediately.
