Let’s talk apple! (Hosted by John Panarese)

the event is    being held on Saturday, June 5, at 1 PM US Eastern time. If anyone cannot make it who did register, the event will be recorded and I can send a Dropbox link to the file afterwards.

  What We Need from You

  For those who plan to attend, Donna and I would like you to send specific questions in regard to Mac or iOS accessibility. This can include shortcomings or enhancement recommendations. Donna and I will field your questions and comments, but then, in the last segment, the forum will be open to everyone for additional conversations. Your questions or comments can be sent to, john@macfortheblind.com. This is also where you request the join link.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

This is Not a vehicle for Apple bashing or general complaints. If anyone seeks to use this forum for that purpose, they will be removed immediately from the session by myself or Donna or another moderator. We are desiring constructive comments and criticism that is professionally and tactfully presented. This information will be sent directly to Apple accessibility, so there will be no toleration for any “abusive” behavior towards Apple or any other company.

We apologize for any inconvenience this change might cause, and we look forward to the June 5th event.
