A wonderful experience: Great volunteers

There are volunteers and then there are volunteers and this is what I discovered in September 2017 when I attended a conference hosted by the Canadian Human Rights Commission in Ottawa.

Each volunteer that I interacted with was definitely a cut above the best! They were well-trained when it came to rendering assistance to me as a vision-impaired person.  They communicated so well, offered assistance beyond the call of duty, and certainly helped to make my time spent at the conference a pleasurable and memorable one.

We need more of this type of volunteer to help improve communications between persons with disabilities and the sighted world.

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