Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss

In Their Own Words...

Learn what successfully employed blind users of assistive technology have to say about the devices they use on the job.

"Currently, I use a Perkins Brailler to prepare documents and lessons, and I also use a braille slate and stylus for my own note taking. A personal computer with the JAWS screen reader and a Basic D embosser with the Duxbury braille translation program streamlines my preparation for classes. It took a bit of an effort to learn how to use this technology, but it was worth it."

Sylvie Kashdan, Teacher of English as a Second Language
