I can hear but she cannot see

This is what happened a few weeks ago when I went to show Mom a news story on my iPad. Mom is not an iPad user and, as a matter of fact, she is not an idevice user in any way. So, any time I get an opportunity to have her interact with either iPhone or iPad, it is a treat for us both.

On this particular day, I wanted to have her read an article from the newspaper and when she went to read it she could hardly see the screen! Strange but I could hear everything and then it dawned on me. The brightness had inadvertently been set way down somehow and all I had to do was to go to the settings option and increase the brightness. Presto! She was then able to see what I was hearing. She would not admit it but she is intrigued by my idevices but won't readily admit it.

I'm Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advocate, wishing you a terrific day.

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 heroes 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!"
