One thing I couldn't live without is my BrailleNote Apex. I can surf the web (with sites such as Google) when I am doing a research project or just to find information much faster than a regular computer.
Being an avid crafter, I purchased a large needlepoint canvas to keep me occupied during the anticipated long hours at the hospital. I pulled it out, I had the yarn to finish it; however, my vision is no longer adequate to do such detailed work. I used every available magnifier I could find, with limited success. I then saw the SmartView. By using the SmartView I was able to complete the project and present it to my Son, Daughter-In-Law and Granddaughter on October 15, 2011 exactly 29 years after I started it!

The sense of freedom and triumph could probably only be understood by someone who, like me, had never been able to do something like this before unaccompanied. Thanks to the Breeze, this summer will be far less isolating for me than the last one. I've learned how to get to a mall and restaurant, my church, and a few other places including a centre where I volunteer once a week mentoring young people.
