Subject: [TechTalk] Life experiences as a blind person
I changed the subject line.Ithe other due to a
dynamite cap blast when I was 3. I never had seen anotherblind person
until I was grown. When my mother took me to register inpublic school,
1951. they told her I could not attend, I would have to goto a blind
school.My mother left there crying, but not sure what shedid but I was
admitted to the public school.At home I was expected to dojust like my
older brothers. I had great teachers in the grammarschool. In high school
I had great teachers as well. I wasn't given much extraattention except
when the teacher put something on the board. They wouldgive me a print
copy. I could read normal size print when I would holdvery close.I was
given large print books but most were not the same as theother students,
so I left them at home as references. They were too bigfor me to lug
around at the high school. After high school I went to avocational class
at the Georgia Academy for the blind to studyHorticulture. I went into a
business of my own growing and selling plants. After 9years I went to
work with the Coca-cola company for 13 years until I lostall vision.After
a couple of years I regained some vision after surgery.Then I took up
computers and repaired and built computers . Now at 75 Ihave again lost
all vision and having to learn computer totally withscreen reader, after
using ZT with screen reader. After reading many of theexperiences talked
about here I am thankful I did not have the badexperiences they had.
