Posted in Apple Inc, Mac, and Podcasts

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!

How can you take a picture if you are blind? How do you know what you are aiming at? Does the phones camera tell you what you are shooting?

When you think of texting, filling in other text fields, or composing emails on your iPhone, does anything come to mind?

There I was back in October with my brand new, first day it came out, 64 GB white iPhone 4S. All those terrific features they talked about, and I was holding them in my hand! I began to explore, and it didn’t take me long to figure out my absolute favorite one.
