Welcome!

Hello, I am Kevin Fjelsted. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Technology is one of my main interests, as the blog’s title suggests, and I have worked with numerous products. Blindness makes me especially interested in accessibility and gives me an opportunity to find strengths in my struggles and triumphs.

Technology, accessibility for blind people, learning, family, and faith are some of the topics that interest me. These topics will be what many of my posts are on, but the main purpose of this blog is for you to know me better and hopefully for you to respond so I can meet you. Thus, we will build a community and learn from each other.

I remember thinking about the fact that I always wanted adventure and new and unusual experiences. I had been accustomed to walking between three and five miles a day for about six months or so; a good daily exercise walk had become quite routine.

Accessible Productivity And Spell Check On The Mac
Operating With A PC Moving to the Mac with VoiceOver from Microsoft WIndows and JAWS was a great organizing exercise for me.
