American Council of the Blind Awards Apple for Accessibility Innovation

MINNEAPOLIS — The American Council of the Blind (ACB) will present Apple with the Robert S. Bray Award for their continued accessibility innovation on July 4, during ACB’s annual conference at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Minneapolis, MN. The Bray Award is given to a person or a company that has improved communication technology or devices, or expanded access to such devices for all blind people.

“The American Council of the Blind applauds Apple for its innovative approach to product accessibility, giving people who are blind equal access to mainstream technology,” said Kim Charlson, president of the American Council of the Blind.

ACB will award Apple for the company’s accessibility innovations that open up the world to people with vision loss by giving them access to the same products their sighted friends, family, and colleagues use. Intuitive by design, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV come with assistive features built-in, such as VoiceOver, Zoom and Dynamic Type, making them powerful and affordable assistive devices. 
 
“We put great effort into making our products accessible because we believe technology should serve everyone,” said Sarah Herrlinger, Senior Manager for Global Accessibility Policy and Initiatives Apple. “We build accessibility into the core of our operating systems and continually innovate new ideas and features to create a great experience for all users.” 

During the annual conference and convention, July 1-9, attendees have the opportunity to hear presentations from mainstream and assistive technology companies, network with others who are blind or visually impaired, and attend many informative workshops and seminars. For more information about activities taking place during the 2016 ACB conference and convention, visit www.acb.org/2016convention.

Action Alert!

Stop Congress from chipping away at our rights
Oppose HR 3765

 

Tomorrow the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice is holding a hearing on HR 3765 – the ADA Education and Reform Act of 2015. AAPD and our partners in the Disability Rights Movement oppose this legislation because it will chip away at the hard-fought victory of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The proposed legislation would prohibit, and subject violators to a criminal fine for, sending demand letters alleging a violation of the ADA with regard to public accommodations. This bill seeks to limit the power of the ADA and reduce compliance with the law.

 

Hearing: HR 3765
 

Examining Legislation to Promote the Effective Enforcement of the ADA’s Public Accommodation Provisions


Thursday, May 19th
9:00am ET
Rayburn House Office Building, Room 2141

 

Almost 26 years ago, the ADA was enacted as a compromise between the disability and business communities. The disability community gave up the ability to receive damages from failure to comply with the federal ADA by only allowing injunctive relief and attorney’s fees for violations of the law with the understanding state and local governments and property owners of public spaces would comply with the regulations. Unfortunately, almost 26 years after enactment, there are still organizations, businesses, and companies who have yet to comply with this important civil rights law for persons with disabilities.
 
Kelly Buckland (Executive Director of the National Council on Independent Living and AAPD Board Member) will be the only witness testifying at the hearing about the importance of the ADA and the significant harms HR 3765 would cause.
 
It would send a strong message to the subcommittee to have a crowd of disability rights advocates pack the room – please join us at the Senate if you are in the DC area! Those of you who can't make it in person can participate via the live stream. More information on the hearing and the live stream are available here.
 
Lead on!

ACB convention preview Fast Lane Communications

Ardis
 

Board of publications presents Fast Lane Communications at the 2016 ACB conference and convention


  
The Information Superhighway has been around for decades, but lately, the traffic has been heavier and faster than ever. Developments like the 24-hour news cycle, the proliferation of on-line information sources, the 140 character limit on Twitter and the use of emoticons mean that if we want to be heard, we have to make our point quickly and powerfully. At this year's Board of Publications Editor's Workshop, we will be sharing strategies that you can use to sharpen your message-whether you are speaking to a crowd, including in a newsletter or posting on-line. It's all about saying more with less, using tools like pictures, audio clips and humor, and generally doing whatever it takes to supercharge your communications so that your message roars to the front of the pack.  
Life in the Fast Lane will be held on Thursday, July 7th from 1:15 to 2:30 PM; workshop costs are $5.00 pre-registration and $7.00 at the convention.

 

Registration for the 2016 conference and convention will open on Thursday, May 19th and run through Wednesday, June 22nd.

Medicare Reminder

 

If you are having trouble covering your Part D drug costs, there are assistance programs that can help. The federal program that helps with drug costs is called Extra Help. Download this chart that lists the income and asset limits to qualify for Extra Help. Depending on your eligibility level, Extra Help may assist you with your Part D premium, deductible, and copayments.

 

Additionally, many states offer a state pharmaceutical assistance program (SPAP) to help their residents pay for prescription drugs. Each program works differently. SPAPs may help pay for your Part D plan premium, deductible, copayments, and/or coverage gap. Download this chart that lists the states that have SPAPs. Use the information listed on the chart to contact your state’s SPAP and see if you qualify.

Spotlight

 

As millions of Americans ready themselves to vote this election season, they need to know the candidates’ positions on key Medicare issues. For this reason, the Medicare Rights Center is providing six questions to ask the 2016 presidential and congressional candidates to find out where they stand on protecting and strengthening Medicare.

 

The Medicare program helps countless older adults and people with disabilities, and their families, achieve health and economic security. Before people head to the polls, they need clear answers from the candidates about their positions on critical Medicare issues–from filling gaps in Medicare coverage to stemming the rising cost of prescription drugs.

 

Visit the Ask the Candidates page to reach out to the 2016 presidential candidates through email or on Twitter and ask where they stand on Medicare.

Alternatively, we could ask John how much is needed to complete the total and offer to pay the difference.

I think RSVA should step up and pay the money to do this for a man who did so much for Vendors  would be the right thing for RSVA

Subject: [leadership] Let's Make Charlie Hodge an ACB Angel!

 

Hello Fellow ACB Leaders:

 

As you may be aware, the November issue of the Braille Forum contains an "In Memoriam" article for Charlie Hodge, a man I was privileged to call a mentor, colleague, and friend.  The article is available at:

 

http://www.acb.org/node/2473

 

As the author of the article, I will say that I was barely able to scratch the surface in referencing Charlie's many contributions to ACB, but understanding the importance of ACB's financial health, one of his significant contributions was his commitment to our "life memberships" program.

 

ACB has recently established an Angels Memorial Tribute Program. Everyone honored by this program will receive their own page on the ACB website containing a testimonial and a photo. In addition, ACB has created a portable Angels wall which will be prominently displayed at every convention which includes each angel’s name in both large print and braille. Tributes to those deceased members who have been honored as ACB angels start at five hundred dollars or more.

 

Several individuals have already written to me inquiring about making contributions in Charlie's memory to honor him as an ACB angel.  As Charlie's close friend, one he mentored and who now is privileged to serve as ACB's second vice president, I am urging all who can to support ACB with a memorial contribution.  Charlie deserves to be on the ACB angels wall!

 

Memorial contributions should be sent to the ACB Minneapolis office at:

 

6300 Shingle Creek Parkway, Suite 195

Brooklyn Center, MN 55430-2136

(800) 866-3242

 

Kindly indicate that your contribution is in memory of Charlie Hodge to assure that it is counted towards his being honored as an ACB angel.

 

If you need further information, please feel free to contact me at:
