Let EQUAL ACCESS help you "turn the light on" for your visually impaired customers.
Are you in the DARK?
If you're not reaching blind and visually impaired customers, let EQUAL ACCESS enlighten you.
EQUAL ACCESS will transcribe your printed materials into Braille or large print and train your staff to take care of customers with vision issues.
We serve business people who, like you, want to reach the vast untapped market of blind and visually impaired people. Over the past decade, blind and low vision workers have become increasingly represented in every type of industry.
In addition, the number of older Americans who lose their vision later in
life from cataracts, diabetes or age-related macular degeneration increases every year. Many of these seniors are dependent
for their everyday needs on accessible businesses in their neighborhoods. People with vision loss patronize businesses that welcome them. Let EQUAL ACCESS help you "turn the light on" for your
visually impaired customers.

The 12 Steps to Living with Low Vision

March 26, 2017
I just finished reading a book which I’d like to share with you. It is called Occupying Aging written by Katheryn Schneider PhD. Copyright 2013. The NLS reference number is DB85915.
Ms. Schneider has been totally blind since birth. For 30 years, she worked as a Clinical Psychologist. Just recently, she joined the ranks of the unemployed.
In Occupying Aging, Ms. Schneider takes you through one year of her life; day by day. She shares her experience with retiring and replacing a working guide dog, participating in advocacy activities in her local community, involvement in her church, participation in the Red Hat Society, her appreciation of reading, music, education, culture and so much more.
I found the book inspiring as it is a true story reflecting a pretty normal active life. Ok, maybe a bit more than normal because this woman is really involved. I admire her and I think you will too.
Until next week …
