Microsoft Office OneNote

Microsoft Office OneNote

I have used OneNote all through high school and college, and it seems like every update brings more and more exciting features. I have low vision and dysgraphia, which makes traditional note taking difficult. However, OneNote provides many different tools for students to take great […]

My High School Laptop

My High School Laptop

My second semester of freshman year in high school (which was in January 2012), I received approval to start using a laptop in the classroom. I had an IEP for low vision and dysgraphia, and was beyond thrilled to finally have a device in the […]

All About The Disability Law Center of Virginia

All About The Disability Law Center of Virginia

About two years ago, I was given a brochure by my Department of the Blind and Visually Impaired case manager for the Disability Law Center of Virginia. I put it on my desk, and didn’t think much about it, until I had a problem. I […]

Watching the Solar Eclipse with Low Vision

Watching the Solar Eclipse with Low Vision

It seems like everyone around me has been extremely excited for the solar eclipse. There have been lines that spanned across parking lots to get the special glasses, a few of my friends have made t-shirts for the eclipse, and a lot of local museums […]

Microsoft Office Sway

Microsoft Office Sway

College Libraries and Low Vision

College Libraries and Low Vision

This shouldn’t be overly surprising, but I don’t really go to libraries that often. I appreciate their existence, and believe they are very important, but they often don’t have services for people like me- students with low vision. There aren’t very many large print books […]

Save Bookshare

Author’s note- Bookshare, a service that provides large print and Braille digital books for people with print disabilities worldwide, is currently in danger of losing federal funding. As a student with low vision, I have been using Bookshare since 2011 and it has dramatically changed […]

All About Bookshare

All About Bookshare

In 2011, my family took me to an assistive technology event at what would be my future university. We didn’t know much about assistive technology, and went there to find resources and answers to many questions we had. It was there that someone asked us […]

Four Online Services Libraries Have For Low Vision Users (and everybody else!)

I’m used to walking into libraries and sighing because I’m in a giant building of things I can’t see. Most of the large print sections at libraries I’ve been to consist of romance novels, which I show no interest in reading, or books that have […]
