Twice in One Week!

NewImage

I know it was the week of World Sight Day… and I know I’d just drawn up a press release focusing on my ability to talk on the topic of blindness… but still I was startled when I was approached to speak on Cape Talk 567 not once, but twice in a single week.

Here is the link to the first of my Cape Talk 567 interviews, which took place at the way-too-early time of 04:45 AM. Luckily it was a phone interview so I could gratefully stumble back to bed to resume my disturbed sleep afterwards.

The second interview, for which I had to be in-studio, took place two days later at the much more civilized time of 14:00 –I’ll share the link to the podcast of that recording soon!

Here’s the first interview, on Early Morning with Abs, 10 October 2017.

Hope you enjoy the interview!

You Have to be Kidding – Me Doing Tech?

The other day I was finishing off editing a recording I’d made of one of my presentations when I stopped dead in my tracks and realized what I was doing. Now, that may not be a shocking statement to you, but try to see it from my perspective. I… was editing…. A recording…. I had made – me, the woman who revealed in her book, “A Different Way of Seeing: A Blind Woman’s Journey of Living an ‘Ordinary’ Life in an Extraordinary Way”, that she had a love-hate relationship with technology and was secretly terrified of breaking the internet… editing a voice recording of a speech totally without sighted help – wow!

I’m not saying I’ve suddenly become a total wizard at technology. Nor am I claiming to have the (to me) remarkable skills that some of my blind friends who are web developers, podcasters, musicians, and assistive technology trainers do… but I feel justified in feeling a little bit proud of my ability to keep learning and growing my skills.

Over the next few weeks I’ll share some of my recordings with you – a few of my speeches and a few radio interviews. Some of those I’ll share will be ones I’ve edited and others will come from other sources.

I hope you enjoy them!
