So I wanted to put an idea out there.
I’ve encountered a lot of the independent living centers to be not so good places.
My idea is in some way, maybe creating an app, or some type of service like Uber but different.
It would be where other blind/sighted people could go to other people’s houses who need help say for example cooking, cleaning etc and teach them.
The idea for me, should be that it doesn’t matter how many times it takes, before a person learns how to do something, or doesn’t understand something.
It shouldn’t disqualify that person from learning how to cook, clean, etc at their own pace.
Any ideas as to how this idea could work? I’m all ears.
PM me if you have any ideas or comment on my post!
So for example, a person called
Hi. I have Windows 10, Jaws 18 and the demo of 2018, and the latest version of Office 365. My spell checker doesn’t work very well. Jaws keeps getting stuck so it’s very hard to select an option without a lot of escaping. Additionally, I can’t scroll through the list of recovered docs. Is this just me or a known bug?
Does anyone else seem to have facial amnesia? I’m not talking about people you’ve known for years or family, but the people you’ve met since your eyes got worse. Example, I started going to a new Dr and had been going there for a year and a half, my wife and I went to the grocery store and someone said hi and my wife returned the hello and I asked her as we walked away who was that and she said my Dr and I seriously had no idea who it was. And that type of thing happens a lot. Like I can’t recognize people out of the setting I normally see them. I just think it’s weird because I have a super great memory for everything else.
Hi all. Even though I knew it was coming, to hear your Dr. say “you are legally blind” for the FIRST time is devastating and soul crushing. Any advice for how to deal with the psychological/emotional aspects of RP? 😉 Also, if anyone has any advice about resources/support for the blind, I’d greatly appreciate it. I may be down today but I am coming at this full force tomorrow. Good night all!
