Hi SFC members,
I just had to pass this along to you. It is an amazing 6 minute video about how a blind man has his life transformed by technology.

Subject: [Oacao-l] TASS Technology brings joy to a blind senior
To: <>
Dear Colleagues,
This video demonstrates the courage and determination of a blind senior who has the willingness to learn and make life better for himself. TASS tablet, designed for the blind, has given him a life-altering experience; he is learning new things and exploring new ways to engage himself and be more independent. It is uplifting and rewarding to witness the joy this new technology has brought in his life and given him a new motivation.
Technology for the blind video demonstrates Raymond Jackson from York Region, ON, Canada, using a tablet specially designed for the blind by Human Endeavour's Technology, Access, and Support for Seniors (TASS) project. The project is funded by the United Way of Greater Toronto/Allan Slaight fund and The Regional Municipality of York.

Thanks to OACAO (Sue and Lina) and many other TASS partners working with us to enhance the lives of seniors.

You are invited!

Please join us online on Monday, September 27 at 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time for a webinar about the beauty and benefits of our native shrubs.


Join the Canadian Wildlife Federation and our guest presenter, Colleen Cirillo, to discover the beauty and functionality of Canada's native shrubs. Delicate flowers, showy fruit and colourful fall leaves make these smaller woody plants ideal additions to any garden. But you will get so much more than beauty. These plants will also attract and support a diversity of native insects and birds, thereby helping you counter biodiversity loss right outside your door. Colleen has spent many years in the world of native and invasive plants, nature education, and on the ground stewardship. She is thrilled to share her love of the often-overlooked native shrubs with us.
