The World Is NOW Accessible!

This week I’ve gotten allot of questions about our technology setup and how I do things. After explaining the ends and out most people asked if it was accessible or not. What I realized is that even when I told them that it was they never moved to try it out. This was even after i told them that the software had a free trial or that the vendor had a pretty great return policy.

Most of them just went back to doing the same thing they were doing before, yet expecting a different result.

A older gentleman once told me if I wanted what another man had i had to do what he did to get it. This remains true with just about everything we want and need in life.
People desire change, but they will not change to meet their needs.

Here’s the real reason why the world is now accessible and people will continue to use inaccessibility as an excuse. Think of the three ways we communicate globally and watch my video response… below

She passes the ACSP test with a B

Opportunities come to those who create them. Maryann saw her opportunity in the (ACSP) Apple Certified Support Professional course that is offered through Fedora’s Teach Institute.

She was scared initially…

She didn’t know where the road to passing the test would leave, but…

She jumped in. Took the course. Studied and…

she Passed with a B.

You are sure to hear her name in a Apple store, newsletter, blog or a course shortly.

Heck, she might even be your teacher someday.

Listen to her story and if this sounds like something you want to accomplish, feel free to reach out and we’ll make it happen together.


He’s completely blind, works on the Apple Store floor and continues to change the world

Tamer has been working for Apple on the store floor for over two months now. I’m wondering why I’m the last person she called. LOL

She’s completely blind.

She get’s to change the world by making the store accessible for every blind person who wants to work at Apple.

She not only got her technology teaching from Fedora Outlier LLC, but we helped her to be more empowered, we encouraged her and together we banded together to change the world.

Here’s a 17 minute call we had, where she broke the news to me.

My wife asked me if I cried, friends asked if I cried and just in case you are wondering…

Yes, I cried….

I love helping the disabled find or create work that is meaningful, purposeful and profitable!!!

Listen now and let’s change the world together!

Fedora In Kentucky

Todd E. Stephens, President of the NFB Kentucky Technology Assistance Division shares the success of the 2015 TAD Symposium, as well as upcoming plans for the 2016 event. Here is what Todd has to say…
We had another fabulous turn-out for the NFBK TAD Symposium that took place on Friday, September 25, 2015 at the Galt House in Louisville, KY. I want to take this time, once again, to express our gratitude to our awesome presenters: Barbara Penegor with Kentucky Talking Books; Danielle Burton (TAD Board member) presenting on the KNFB Reader app; Roseanne Hoffman and Larry Skutchan from American Printing House; Jim Fortman from Vision Aid Systems; Dave Wilkinson from Hims Inc.; VaShaun Jones and Damashe Thomas from Fedora Outlier, LLC; Jimmy Brown and Jerry Wheatley from Kentucky Assistive Technology Service (KATS) Network; MacArthur Darby, Chris Stewart, Danielle Burton, Cindy Sheets, and Jennifer Hall (Moderator), NFB-NEWSLINE Roundtable Panelists; and last, but not least, Tonia Boyd-Gatton, Extraordinaire Mistress of Ceremonies!
Where there is a will, there is a way!
VaShaun Jones and Damashe Thomas traveled from Atlanta Georgia on the Megabus, on their own dime arriving in Louisville about 8:30 p.m. on the eve of the TAD Symposium. On the morning of, VaShaun called me at 6:00 a.m. to ask me how he could help with the set-up. I was thoroughly impressed by this gesture of friendship, kindness and support. I’ll have you know that VaShaun and Damashe Thomas stole the show with their usual presentation of excellence on all things Apple. They presented, answered all questions and departed about 45 minutes after their presentation to catch Uber to get to their Megabus stop, which departed for Atlanta a little after 4:00 p.m. They arrived safely in Atlanta early Saturday morning. When I asked VaShaun to be a part of this symposium, he said, “you ask and I’m there.” Over the years, I’ve heard those words too many times to count, but VaShaun didn’t leave us hanging and he certainly backed it up!
VaShaun is the President of Fedora Outlier. His firm is the first nationally-recognized firm delivering consulting, teaching, and support in blindness-related assistive technology for Apple. To learn more about Fedora Outlier, VaShaun Jones, Damashe Thomas and the rest of the Fedora Outlier staff, you may find their website at Fedora Outlier
The Technology Assistance Division has gotten an early jump of exploring funding options for the 2016 TAD Symposium. We are excited about as well as hopeful that we can deliver an impactful symposium in 2016. The focus will be a bit different from those in prior years. Our content has been in training the trainer. The objectives in 2016, however, is to identify those training opportunities that are most in demand from NFBK members and others in the community that are affected by vision loss, so that we can offer break-out training sessions.
