- Don’s Excellent Feedback
- Darrell. As a sighted individual with a special interest in accessibility, I’ve become a regular reader of Blind Access Journal and a fan of your podcasts in particular. You’ve asked twice, now, for feedback regarding your “pod chats,” first from Tucson and now your 9/11 tribute. So, here’s mine. I think they’re great – Karen brings a whole new dimension to the blog; and by including topics that may at first seem to be outside the scope of your mission statement, you’re actually enhancing your message. Sometimes I feel like a voyeur, listening in on a private conversation; but more often I feel like an invited guest, privileged to have a better sense of you as a couple, not merely trying to cope with inflexible bus schedules and inaccessible software, but enjoying friends, sharing music, talking politics. You know. life! Darrell, you’re an inspirational advocate for accessibility. Karen, I think you complement that advocacy in a very genuine way. Your “chats” bring a deeper meaning to accessibility because you’re making yourselves more accessible – as human beings – to readers like me. And that’s the point. isn’t it? I’d like to discuss this with you further in the future, but please keep up the good work. We’re listening .we’re reading .we’re getting the message.
