Abstract
This talk will discuss the challenges of being honest with yourself about what you do and don’t know about the Assistive Technology (AT) you use. As we have more blind and low-vision people in the working arena, the first thing that must happen is that they really understand the AT packages available and what suits them the best. There are many Veterans are coming home with visual and other disabilities, and the aging population are still quite capable of working even if they’ve had a vision, hand, or hearing loss that should also consider what AT to learn to use. In order to do a job, the person’s biggest strength they have is knowledge, not just how to do their job but how to do it with maximum powered in using AT that helps them the best. This talk will also include some personal examples of how this has affected both the worker and the company they work for.
