Are you Techno Savvy? If I had to rate myself on a scale between the numbers one through ten then I would say that I am about a five. My husband on the other hand is definitely nine and a half. The 21st century has brought a great deal of accessible technology to the blind and visually impaired community. However, it is my opinion that there are some blind individuals who choose not to be “Techno Savvy.”

As much as I love the Apple App Store both on the Mac and iOS I still have some fears with purchasing new apps. These concerns are some that you share and some you may not. We can browse for content and apps easily, create alerts for developers and their apps, artist with the latest jams and more, but what we can’t do is find out before hand if an app is accessible to us or not.
How are you able to enjoy reading a book if you can’t see? Do all of your books have to be in Braille? Where do you get your books from? Recently these questions were asked by the daughter of a dear friend of mine. To me, they are very simple questions. However, to the sighted, they are very legitimate ones.
If you are like me then you love to have things presented in a simple and concise manor, you are neat and tidy or you just hate looking around for things you need. I have a Mac System Preference Pain tip that is sure to make your life easy and if not easy then at least simple.

Good morning all friends and family:
Today is the most important day of the year, yes even more then my marriage to my wonderful husband, Nelson; and the birth of my daughter, Dina.
This date August 23, 2005, was 7 years ago today that my best friend in the whole world, Steve Caroll, gave me life, yes life. I had been on dialysis from 2002-2005, on this faithful date, after not wanting to receive this special gift, but with 2 heart attacks while on dialysis, I might be able to survive the next one.

How dependent are you on your cell phone? In other words, do you take yours everywhere you go, even into those unmentionable places that I won’t mention? Or, are you one of those who barely looks at your phone except to perhaps make or receive a call, and could care less if you are not near the phone and miss the call?
