Coming Next Week: Freedom Scientific’s Newest Assistive Technology!
A representative from Freedom Scientific is scheduled to visit my Assistive technology Instructor’s Class next week and demonstrate all of the new technology. Look for an article summarizing the different items presented in class.

Remember use the link below to go directly to the Vision Issues forum and tell us about your convention story. I talked with a couple who attended the convention one year and were married at the next year's convention. A very interesting story.

ATI Program Update:
My ATI class just finished learning the ins and outs of Word and I am preparing for the Microsoft Word certification Exam.
The class also completed our studies of report writing and I have written my first assistive technology assessment report. Our next topic is learning Microsoft PowerPoint. I am looking forward to using JAWS to learn how to construct a PowerPoint presentation. So, stay tuned!

Until next week – Have a great week!
