Question of the Week
Question: I am thinking of “cutting the cord” and canceling my cable or satellite subscription. What is a good streaming device to use?
Answer: Hands down my recommendation for this situation is the 4th Generation Apple TV. It is by far the most accessible streaming box out there. There are some tradeoffs, such as no internet browser. But, the accessibility features are unmatched. And, if ou are familiar with the gestures of Voice Over on iPhone or iPad, it will be simply to use. If you are looking to get into “cutting the cord”, the Apple TV is well worth it!

Work of the Week
As visually impaired people, one of our great concerns is if something is going to be accessible to us. That becomes our focus. But, so often, it takes our focus off of the actual thing we want to do. For example, in this episode, we discussed kitchen accessibility. If we are too worried about how to make the kitchen accessible, we won't get to focus on the fun we can have in the kitchen. So, let's all work together on making the lives we live as accessible as possible so that we can enjoy our lives to the fullest!
