For the sensory-impaired, navigating new technology is always a challenge, but one that is well worth the effort. Eager to assist others within the Apple community, Gordon, who is totally blind himself, co-founded Mac-Access with his visually-abled partner, Lynne. Mac-Access is a non-profit organization whose primary purpose is to assist the sensory-impaired with everything Mac OS and iOS; with an emphasis on accessibility.
The people at Mac-Access have reviewed a number of products including Audiobook Builder. As long-time users, Gordon and Lynne have helped shape the development of Audiobook Builder as well as shared valuable getting started tips and tricks with other new users. Audiobook Builder would not be the product it is today without the feature requests given to us by the people who love it. Some of the highest quality suggestions we have gotten for Audiobook Builder have come from visually impaired users and we appreciate the feedback!
“Mac-Access’s primary purpose is to provide a friendly and informal place of discussion for those with a common interest in Apple’s products and those of third party developers like Splasm Software, in the form of an E-Mail forum. We have assisted quite a number of former die-hard Microsoft Windows users to make the switch to Mac OS and iOS,” stated Gordon. Although accessibility is the primary topic of discussion, it isn’t the only one. Anything Apple-related is fine. Mac-Access provides a positive wealth of friendly, knowledgeable, interesting and well-informed individuals who are only too willing to share their skills and knowledge with you.
Mac-Access welcomes all kinds of people; you don’t have to be disabled or sensory-impaired to join. Share your opinions, ask questions, and connect with this great community of Apple enthusiasts.
