Making Media Accessible For All!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Accessible Media Inc.. All opinions are 100% mine.

There are many things that I take for granted in my life and I know I am not alone in this.  The thing is you do not realize this always until it is taken away from you. Your eyesight is one of those things.  If you have it you do not think anything more about it, though imagine having it for 13 years of your life and then no longer.  Reality is not everyone is going to have their eyesight and and other faculties throughout their life and the earlier we educate ourselves and improve the services for all with impairments the better for us all.

Accessible Media has a great video out right now on YouTube video about Jeff Berwick. He was blind since age 13, and this video allows you to share his day with him. It's an a great perspective and allows you into the world of someone that is visually impaired.

You may be asking who Accessible Media Inc. (AMI) is.  They are a not-for-profit multimedia organization operating two broadcast services, VoicePrint and The Accessible Channel -- TACtv, and a companion website ( AMI serves more than five million Canadians who are blind, with low vision, print-restricted, deaf or hearing-impaired, learning disabled, mobility impaired, in need of literacy skills or learning English as a second language, by making print, broadcast and online media accessible.  Talk about a great company and a rewarding job!

Just watching the video makes me appreciate the services that Accessible Media does for Canadians and I definitely recommend checking out this video and educating yourself.
