Third party technology does not always work

In the normal scheme of things, it is always preferable to be able to use technology without having to depend on either third party software or
hardware to make things work. However, it is not always possible and over the past two years I have come to realize that third party technology does not always work.

An example of this is trying to pair a Braille Notetaker with an i device. Truth be told, most manufacturers of Braille Notetakers promote their
product as being able to work successfully with an i device. This is not accurate. There are lots of challenges when it comes to pairing and more often than not there are huge challenges and lots of heartache for the user.

I think that, based on my experience, the Braille Pen is probably the most affective Braille device when it comes to pairing with i devices. This is
just my humble opinion and maybe someone reading this could help to enlighten me more.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"Each time we raise our voice at someone else we are engaging in bullying! Each time we raise our hands to slap or punch someone else we are also engaging in bullying and each time we engage in actions to either manipulate or force someone else to do what we want we are also engaging in bullying!

There is no room in this world for bullying and each day we fail to take action against bullying it is another day that we allow others to bully us and our kids. Our heros and role models are the ones who have made us proud, those brave young men and women who gave their lives for us in past wars and those who continue to do so. They are not the ones who choose to be racists and those who believe that their bad behaviour in public is acceptable.

I write and record audio mysteries that are being used at such events as murder mystery evenings as well as at public awareness and team building events. I promote understanding, tolerance, and problem solving and my audio mysteries continue to be broadcasted around the world and you can listen to them anywhere! On the plane or train! In the car or right there in your home! On your i device or computer!

Please join my campaign against bullying (CAB) by supporting my efforts to keep on writing and recording!
If you truly care then you will certainly dare!"
