Order Today: The Old Hat Guide to iPhone Accessibility
"The Old Hat Guide to iPhone Accessibility" chronicles the most common frustrations new iOS users face when picking up their device for the first time.
The book, with its easy-to-follow instructions, personal testimonies and included video/audio demonstrations, has been written to serve as a "lost manual" and the missing link to help you master your iGadget for use in the classroom, workplace and at play!
I love your new motto. It says a lot about what people can expect from you and has a nice ring to it.

Follow Friday: #FF with Laura Legendary of @Accessible_Info
Welcome, once again, to Follow Friday (or as frequent Twitter followers call it—#FF). The weekly #FF trend highlights interesting “tweeters” worth following,, and since it’s one of the Fedora team’s goals to share noteworthy people and brands within the blindness community, we felt it necessary to jump in feet first on the weekly Follow Friday craze. Each Friday, we’ll profile another Twitter user through the Follow Friday series on the Delivering Access blog.
Who are we showcasing this Friday? For this week’s profile, I’ve picked Laura Legendary from Accessible Insights. What’s this? You haven’t heard of Laura and Accessible Insights? Well, get that cup of coffee or tea, sit back and read about whom she is and what her organization has to offer.
How to Add a Contact to Favorites in iOS
We all have family and friends that we communicate with often, sometimes several times a day. Those folks are definitely our favorites, and on the iPhone, there is a tab in the Phone app devoted to them. It’s a neat, handy little way to get to the contacts we call most frequently.
Wednesday Roundup For May 15
In this weeks edition of the Fedora Outlier Wednesday Roundup we have chosen six stories from around the Internet for you to enjoy.
In our lead story you will learn about the changes that Apple is planning to make to their AppleCare warrantee service.
Digit Eyes – Old Hat App Review
There is a ringing noise in my ears and its from a quick response unit of either the fire department, police station or a ambulance on their way to assist someone. You can get similar assistance by using this app and even if its an identifying/labeling emergency you can feel at ease when your life is labeled and in order.
Trip It – Old Hat App Rview
Its a bird. Its a plain. Nope maybe its a train or a car. It doesn’t matter how you travel this app is for any mode of transportation you choose except for time travel.

#FollowFriday: American Foundation for the Blind (@AFB1921)
There’s a trend happening each Friday on Twitter—and it’s called Follow Friday (or #FF to frequent “tweeters”). Since we love to share cool people and brands serving the blindness community (and we happen to have a pretty happening Twitter feed of our own), we want to bring this phenomenon to the Delivering Access blog each Friday.
As I thought about who we’d feature on our first #FollowFriday post, I couldn’t think of anyone else besides the American Foundation for the Blind (tweeting as @AFB1921), whose tweets are powered by savvy media guy and social media manager, John Mackin. Take a second to go beyond the 140 character limit with us as I talk with John about AFB’s tweets and his involvement with the social media account.
Fedora Outlier Wednesday Roundup For May 8, 2013
In this weeks edition of the Fedora Outlier Wednesday Roundup we have a great assortment of stories for you all to enjoy. First up is an in depth review of the newly accessible Kindle app for iOS, and then you will read about 5 technologies that only ten years ago would have only been seen in a science fiction film. Then is a story about Eric Weihenmayer, a blind adventurer
who skis with the help from a sighted guide.
Our fourth story is one that will most likely upset most of us in the blindness community, but I think that is a very important article for all of us to read. It is about 2 blind people in Belfast being denied entrance to an airplane because they are blind. Finally we have another Old Hat Guide app review. This one is on the very popular PayPal app for iOS. So what do you say? Let’s get to it.
