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 was amazed at how many pages were in the compact book that I held in my hands as a child. I received my first new testament in the third grade from my grandparents. The new testament in Braille consists of four volumes. Each volume

Children Are Awesome
I saw a Twitter post from a Blind friend recently that went something like this. “I wonder if Blind people can adopt children?” This question gave me a bit of a pause for reflection because we adopted four children! Adopting is an incredible miracle and life is so fully manifested in the incredible gift of bringing a new child home to the family. I remember the wonderful bonding that took place immediately after holding a newly adopted baby in my
