TEK TALK WELCOMES AUTHOR, BONNIE MOSEN TO DISCUSS HER NEW BOOK: IT'S OFF TO WORK WE GO!" Hosted on Monday, June 06, 2016

Unemployed and actively seeking work? Underemployed and searching for a job that makes better use of your skills? Entering the workforce for the first time?
Having a job promotes dignity, helps with a sense of purpose, and hopefully brings in some money to buy the things we want.
Paperless offices and increasingly capable assistive technology should mean that jobs are easier for blind people to get than ever. Yet it seems that attitudinal change hasn't happened as quickly as technological change.

Tek Talk Welcomes Chris Gray, President, The ALLIANCE FOR Braille Literacy Hosted on Monday, May 23, 2016

The Alliance for Braille Literacy was founded in March, 2013, to promote braille literacy and to ensure that any new braille systems adopted in the United States would provide state-of-the-art codes for braille readers and blind students in this country. The impetus for the formation of this group is the adoption, by BANA, of UEB (Unified English Braille) code as the official braille code for the United States.
