6) Ten Things Hospitals Can Do to Be More Inclusive and Accessible | David Goldfield

During the past twelve months I have spent a lot of time visiting and supporting my wife in two different hospitals. I have become keenly aware of how these places often lack accessibility which would make the experience easier and more inclusive for both patients as well as their visitors. I have nothing but admiration and respect for the medical professionals who have done so much to assist and support my wife. The following list is in no way meant as a criticism of the doctors, nurses, surgeons, respiratory therapists and other specialists who have provided support to us. These people should be honored and respected as much as our military and its veterans. Indeed, some of the people I have met in the medical field are true warriors and war heroes and I am in awe of them and what they do. They see death on a regular basis. Many of them are called to save lives. Sometimes they do save those lives. Other times they are unable to do so. I cannot imagine the effect on them of this amazing and necessary work. That being said I've had some ideas of how hospitals could be so much more inclusive. These ideas would not require technology that we don't already have. Some would require a financial investment but they wouldn't require new technologies to be designed. While I don't have time right now to work on this I'd like to help engage in advocacy at a later and more convenient time to see if we can turn some of these ideas into reality:

7) YouTuber MrBeast Hailed For Giving 'Gift Of Sight' To 1,000 Visually-Impaired People

He paid for cataract surgeries of these people who were blind or near-blind and could not afford the procedure themselves, as per CNN. Some of the participants were also given cash and other donations. Ophthalmologist and surgeon Jeff Levenson performed the first round of surgeries:

10) Blind Americans Come to Washington to Tell Their Stories to Congress

National Federation of the Blind Seeks to Advance Legislative Priorities. Hundreds of blind Americans will converged on the nation's capital to meet with their representatives in Congress to tell their stories and emphasize the need for legislators to advance key priorities that will help the blind. The annual event organized by the National Federation of the Blind, known as its Washington Seminar, officially began with a kick-off meeting on Monday, January 30 at 5 p.m. Eastern time. Throughout the rest of the week, blind Americans using white canes or guide dogs were seen throughout the Capitol complex. As part of our key priorities, we support the following legislative initiatives:

13) Colorado Woman Combats Norms By Becoming First In Her School To Obtain Black Belt In A Wheelchair | 9NEWS

Publisher: Prior to an injury that I sustained about 6 years ago now that left me with limited mobility I was a practitioner of traditional Korean Taekwondo for almost 15 years. I earned my 3rd Degree Black Belt under the late Grand Master Moo Hwan Kim and during that time taught thousands of students and competed in over a thousand full contact traditional and Olympic-stye Taekwondo sparring tournaments. And I just want to say, from experience, that martial arts families, of all styles and types, are comprised of some of the kindest people that you will ever meet. And more to the point, some of the most understanding with regard to different levels of ability. Everyone thinks that martial arts is about fighting. I certainly did. But it's really about living. So if you live with a disability, please don't think that martial arts aren't for you. They may be just what the doctor ordered. 9NEWS: It is said that less than 10 percent of people who pursue karate will ever obtain their first degree black belt, and it takes years of practice to achieve that accomplishment. Of that 10 percent, one woman at 5280 Karate Academy Foundation in Lakewood, Colorado is defying even more odds. Anita Liuzzi broke barriers by becoming the first person in a wheelchair to earn a black belt at 5280 Karate Academy in Lakewood, Colorado:

16) New Kiosk Rules in the Works | TPGi

There are kiosks everywhere — self-checkout at grocery stores, check-in at hotels and doctor's offices, ordering kiosks at restaurants, banking, and retail stores. Often, these kiosks are inaccessible—they lack screen readers, tactile keypads, captions, and other critical accessibility tools. Often, an attendant is unavailable to assist, and the only option is the inaccessible self-service kiosk. As a result of the widespread lack of accessibility and a host of existing rules that touch on kiosk accessibility but do not cohesively address it, the US Access Board is revisiting the existing rules around self-service machines and their accessibility:

17) Under-Serving The Disabled Community Is Affecting Your Bottom Line | Forbes

Poor digital accessibility will impact your bottom line. An inaccessible website makes it harder for visitors with disabilities to buy your products and use your services. It bars them from actively engaging with your brand, which can lead to lost sales opportunities for your business. In fact, 75% of people with a disability will take their business elsewhere because of poor accessibility and are even willing to buy from a more expensive e-commerce source that does offer an accessible experience:

19) My Experience Watching The 2017 Solar Eclipse With The BrainPort

The February 1979 solar eclipse, the last total eclipse in North America during the twentieth century, happened during my third grade year. Of course a good teacher would use it as a learning opportunity, explaining what an eclipse was etc. Mrs. Love was definitely one of those cool teachers, and also taught the class never to look directly at the sun, and how to use pinhole cameras with paper to be safe. My classmates and I went outside during the peak of the eclipse, not total but still 87%, and it was an exiting moment, though I was disappointed that I couldn't see it:

25) Art Revives Memories Of Visually Impaired

Australian Paralympian Katie Kelly should have been on top of the world. She had just won the first-ever gold medal for paratriathlon at the Rio games, and standing on the podium was a highlight of her life. But her vision was failing. Kelly's journey with Usher syndrome, a rare genetic condition that affects both hearing and vision, was beginning to take a toll. So when she was asked to be part of Last Seen, a world-first project where artists bring visual memories of the sight-impaired to life, it was a moment tinged with sadness:

29) Talking Credit Cards Help Visually Impaired People Prevent Abuse

Credit cards are not easy for visually impaired people to use because they can't always see the terminal to know where to insert their card. But the main challenge for blind people is that they can't confirm whether the price the retailer keys in is accurate. To alleviate that problem, French tech firm Thales has developed a credit card that talks. It was the French who invented the chip card, with its four-digit-code security system. Thales is also developing a biometric credit card that can read a user's fingerprint:

30) 'Radio Talking Book' Keeps Visually Impaired Minnesotans Engaged

Back when we were a newspaper-reading country, there was the morning edition paper and the evening edition paper. The day's stories were always a big topic of conversation. But if you were blind or visually impaired, newspapers were not immediately accessible — until Radio Talking Book. Joseph Papke is the supervisor of the organization in St. Paul, and he joined MPR News host Cathy Wurzer to talk about the birth of the essential service:

33) 5 Products To Help Build Literacy Skills In Children With Multiple Disabilities | APH FamilyConnect

As teachers and parents, we plan a LOT when it comes to the education of our precious little ones. Especially with our kiddos who are blind or have low vision, as well as multiple disabilities, we plan to include not only the core curriculum areas but also Expanded Core Curriculum areas. We want them to learn an array of functional skills to match their educational skills. One especially important skill lies solidly in both camps and cannot be emphasized enough — literacy! Easily accepted as academic and part of the core curriculum, I cannot think of a more functional life skill than literacy. Fostering this crucial skill set in our kiddos with multiple disabilities can take some extra effort and thought. Here are some helpful items to support you as the parent and teacher while you make literacy learning both fun and possible for the youngster(s) in your life:

10AM PT, 11AM MT, 12PM CT, 1PM ET, 6PM GMT
Did you know there are five RUBY models to help with your low vision needs? RUBY handheld video magnifiers provide the help that many people with low vision need to read a text and see details. All RUBY models have a crisp, sharp image, high-contrast modes, and built-in LEDs. The streamlined design means RUBY can go with you anywhere, giving you easy access to photos, letters, prescriptions, packaging labels, and menus, even in a dark restaurant. With its broad range of adjustable, undistorted magnification, a RUBY video magnifier outperforms a drawerful of traditional magnifiers. Join Ian Ramos from Access Ingenuity with Joe McDaniel from Vispero to discuss the features and benefits of all the RUBY models and the assistance each can give in specific situations. Note that everybody is welcome and can benefit from this presentation. If you are a teacher of the visually impaired (TVI), this presentation is approved for ACVREP continuing education credit. Learning Outcomes: Features of all RUBY models. How to determine the right size for you. How adding speech capability can take you further.

February 22nd 2023 | Procedural Safeguards and Parental Rights: New Webinar Series with Karen Mayer Cunningham | APH FamilyConnect

4PM PT, 5PM MT, 6PM CT, 7PM ET, 12AM GMT on 1/26
This fall, we were pleased to partner with Karen Mayer Cunningham to present two webinar series. Navigating and Negotiating Successful IEP and 504 Outcomes and Ask the Advocate provided information to parents, professionals, and school-based members. Participants had the opportunity to learn more about the IEP and 504 processes as well as the opportunity to ask specific questions about their child's IEPs. These two series have been highly attended, and we have received requests for more content from Karen Mayer Cunningham, the self-proclaimed “Special Education Boss”. The positive feedback and need for more content to support parents and professionals leads to the next series of webinars. We are excited to offer the next series to continue to support parents and professionals. Procedural Safeguards: Procedural Safeguards are handed out, and many don't have a full understanding of the document. Procedural Safeguards and Rights are in place for parents and individuals with a disability between the ages of 3 to 22. Unfortunately, most parents are only asked by school-based members if they “received” their copy of the procedural rights, and would they please sign in receipt of them. While that checks a box for the school, it in no way equips the families with a knowledge of their rights and protection, nor indicates the school's legal obligation. This series will identify your rights and the difference between procedural and substantive requirements. Join the APH ConnectCenter and Karen Mayer Cunningham as we dive into Procedural Safeguards and Parental Rights. Learn more: We hope you will join the 6-part webinar series to further your knowledge and understanding of the Procedural Safeguards and Parental Rights.

March 21st 2023 and March 22nd 2023 | Multiple Perspectives 2023 | Americans With Disabilities Act Multiple Perspectives On Access, Inclusion, & Disability Conference | Ohio State University

"It is time to move beyond the letter of the law to the spirit of the law; to shift our focus from redressing human and environmental problems through remedial design to preventing problems through holistic design." -Leslie Kanes Weisman. As a modern land grant university, an important part of Ohio State University's mission is outreach and engagement, serving the community through a variety of activities. During the tenth anniversary year of the Americans With Disabilities Act the Multiple Perspectives On Access, Inclusion And Disability conference was created to help fulfill this mission. In short, the goal of the conference is to encourage the kind of change suggested by Leslie Kanes Weisman in the opening quote. It is hoped that the annual conference will serve as a catalyst for positive change and a springboard for collaborations with our partners in education, business, public, and social service. Each year a series of workshops will provide a forum for individuals and organizations to expand their knowledge and perspectives, and an opportunity to increase community resources through the synergy of collaboration. The workshops are designed to bring a diverse audience together to discuss the full spectrum of disability issues and experiences. To ensure broad participation from the university community, business, state and local government, educators, advocacy organizations, social service agencies, and individuals with disabilities sponsors are sought each year to subsidize conference participants.

Editorial Contributor #3: David Woodbridge (Volunteer)

Volunteer Editorial Contributor Since: February 6th 2023

Location: Central Coast, New South Wales, Australia

Time Zone: Australia Eastern Standard Time (AEST/AEDT) (GMT+10)

In addition to serving as an Editorial Contributor to Access Information News, David is also the National Commercial Assistive Technology Advisor for Vision Australia where he has worked since 1990. Over this time he has assisted people who are blind or vision impaired in their home, education, and work settings to take advantage of the benefits of using assistive and main stream technology.

In the last seventeen years, he has also been involved with evaluating technology for use by people who are blind or vision impaired covering both low and high tech equipment (including Microsoft, Samsung, Google, Amazon, and Apple). David is also one of the key spokespersons for Vision Australia relating to technology.

He has been an Apple Ambassador for Apple Australia since 2009 with a group of other Ambassadors / Apple Distinguished Educators (ADE)'s covering the range of Apple's Accessibility solutions throughout Australia.

David produces a range of podcasts (since 2011) covering Apple and other technologies which are distributed on his own podcast (http://davidwoodbr.podbean.com). In addition, he also has a regular Talking Tech program (since 2013) which can be heard every Tuesday at 4:30 Eastern Summer Time on Vision Australia Radio Melbourne (available online) or via https://omny.fm/shows/talking-tech-vision-australia-radio

David also runs a weekly Tech Monday where people can chat about assistive and main stream technology, share information, and any tips and tricks.

David lost his sight when he was 8 years old and had to learn Braille. Since then, he completed high school, went to Sydney University receiving a Social Work degree, spent 4 years drug and alcohol counselling, and then moved into his current job.

As a person who is blind, David believes that as a user of the technology that he recommends to others, that he is well situated to look at the strengths and shortcomings of the assistive technology that he comes across in both his professional and personal life, in particular, mainstream technology that is accessible.
