January 22, 2017. A Little Bio: Hi. And, WELCOME! I am a power user of adaptive technology. This is very important in the digital world where i read books with a Kindle E-reader, perform all kinds of operations with Amazon Fire tablets, Windows tablets, and, even a twelve year old laptop running Windows XP. Yep. Heard that right. Still works great, even though not supported by Microsoft.
Additionally, I am a website developer with twenty years of experience where accessibility isn't an add-on. It's a requirement! So, blind is not a barrier if you have the tools, and, from the developer perspective, understand proper digital and website design! In this blog, I talk about these devices and the way I use adaptive technology to communicate. It's a great story offering the blind computer user a place at the table with the world at large. I am especially fond of the Kindle and Fire tablet devices offered by Amazon. There is a budding list of instructional offerings on this subject!
Where there are poor website design standards, I take a look and give sensible hints on how to make these poor outcomes accessible to the blind user.
There is also links to my consulting business for which I provide marketing, website design and hosting, all within my mission of making adaptive technology a designed offering not an option! A plus, is that this website is running the CMS program CMsimple. This program which allows for online editing, is not only fully accessible to the website reader, but, also completely accessible to the blind administrator adding and editing content. That is huge!
And, some other stuff of a more personal nature including what I think of what is going around in Tiffin-Town. See "Just My Opinion! So, sit back and enjoy the ride! Of course, you can Friend me on Facebook.
