[nfbwatlk] Another device to help us "see"

I know of a young lady who is trying to purchase a rotary phone. I suggested
she might find one on eBay. I remember them not so fondly because they hurt
my fingers. 

I can't believe that we typed paper after paper with no speech to tell us
what we were typing and not a very good way to make corrections. I would
feel very anxious if I had to type that way now. 

At our chapter meeting this evening we talked briefly about the benefits of
braille. Those in attendance were all braille readers.

Blessings in Jesus' name
Philippians 4:6-7
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and
petition, with thanksgiving,
present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all
understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

But before there were scanners, the KNFB reader, computers and 
all, we all had to have people read us all kinds of sensitive 
stuff.  I always tried to find people through church, because I 
figured I had less of a chance of getting ripped off, but there 
was and is no guarantee.  It's a whole different crazy world out 
there now.  I notice young people don't have some of the same 
doubts and fears we um, dare I say, older folks have.  Today as I 
was heading for work, I had this daydream of technology suddenly 
stopping and going back to what was available in the 1950's.  I 
had to laugh, thinking about having to dial a phone again, and 
use a typewriter (probably not even an electric one).  Lol.
