Assistive Technology Training and Support Services

There’s absolutely no shame in admitting that you might not be as good with your computer or other electronic device as you wish you could be. We hear people talk about how wonderful they are and yet, whenever you try to use it, the device or software seems to not want to cooperate, no matter what you do.
It’s OK. The software doesn’t hate you and the computer isn’t out to get you, even though sometimes it may seem that this is the case. Sometimes, we just need a little bit of help. To be truthful, I’m not much of a cook and my grades in algebra might shock you. There are things which may be difficult or which may seem complicated for me but, for you, they’re fairly simple.
While I don’t think you’d want me to help you cook your next meal or assist you in completing your next math assignment, I’m able and willing to assist you in using your computer or iDevice.
I’ve been working in this field for over 24 years and I’m also a daily user of this technology. I can provide training and support with screen readers such as NVDA, JAWS and Window-Eyes along with VoiceOver for the Mac or other iDevice such as an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
I can help you in using your assistive technology, whether you need some help in downloading a book from Bookshare, reading that book on your Plextalk Pocket or in writing a book of your own using Microsoft Word.
I’ve been a user of JAWS since version 1.0 began shipping in January of 1995, have used Window-Eyes since version 2 and have been using NVDA since the summer of 2009. I’m also an iPhone owner and use it for everything from reading books to texting my family and friends.
My fee is $50.00 per hour. However, if that is unaffordable to you, contact me and we can talk about what is affordable for you. I also make it a policy to offer my first lesson at no cost if you feel you haven’t received what you were expecting. Also, if you ask for help with a problem and if I find that I’m not able to provide the answer you need then you pay nothing, no matter how much time I spent trying to solve your problem.
Please email me with further questions or to discuss your situation.
