Podcast With A Blindness Perspective.

Sep 14, 2021

The Tech Abilities Crew took on some tough conversations and a lot of good information was laid out on the table. Will there be a Mac vs PC showdown this month? We actually went at it a bit and stay tuned when Raqi and Lisa return to the Blind Abilities Studio to balance out the battle royal. Jesse, Serina and Jeff brought a great perspective on the tools for education and gave some great tips from their own educational journeys. 

Check out the list and links below for all the tech tidbits and news covered by the team. You can use the chapter feature in your podcast player to jump to the topics you want to listen to first, then 2nd and so on.
