On July 24, thanks to the invitation of the Florida and Virgin Islands (FAVI) Deaf-Blind Collaborative, we presented our GoCC4All app at a webinar. The webinar was conducted first in English and then in Spanish, and had American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation.
If you have ever wanted to access live emergency alerts for your location but could not because of your vision and hearing loss, then this webinar is for you! Next Friday, July 24, we will be conducting a webinar about the GoCC4All app.
I remember the first time I learned about deaf- blindness. I was attending my first Project Director’s meeting in Washington, D.C. as a Project Director in a Television Access grant from the U.S. Office of Special Education- OSEP almost 15 year ago. I was terrified, trying to open up space in my brain so that I could absorb as much information as I could in this new environment.
