This Week's Featured Advertisement: Attention! We Have A Winner! BraillePenmanship Giveaway Essay Contest!

After weeks of receiving an overwhelming number of submissions, and after reading through so many great essays and then agonizing over them repeatedly over the last few days, Flying Blind, LLC is ecstatic to announce that we have a winner in the BraillePenmanship Giveaway Essay Contest.

Ms. Caitlyn Laster of Belleville, Arkansas is the undisputed winner of the BraillePenmanship Giveaway Essay Contest sponsored by Flying Blind, LLC and has won herself a brand new BraillePen Touch valued at $995.00 USD! Caitlyn will be entering the 10th Grade this Fall at Western Yell County School, and will have the remainder of the summer to benefit from using her BraillePen Touch in a variety of settings!

Caitlyn had some extremely tough competition, and the decision came down to Caitlyn and two other very worthy recipients. But it was Caitlyn that managed to make a most compelling case as to why Braille is important to her, and how she plans to utilize her newly acquired AdapTech companion, which sealed the deal with Flying Blind LLC!

Please feel free to read and share Caitlyn's contest-winning-essay in its entirety at: http://bit.ly/1Lq76WR. And stand by for an update and accompanying photo that will be posted to Flying Blind, LLC's Facebook Page sometime this summer letting us all know how Caitlyn is enjoying and using her new BraillePen Touch!

Flying Blind, LLC would like to thank each and every student who took the time to participate in this writing contest. We think you are all winners! For those of you who participated, be sure to look for a note in your inbox with a word of thanks and appreciation from us!

Congratulations Caitlyn! Until next time!

Uniting Your Body, Mind, and Spirit

Flying Blind, LLC is pleased to marry its passion for physical, mental, and spiritual wellness with adaptive technology by partnering with www.blindyoga.net, your source for accessible Yoga instruction for persons who are blind or vision impaired.

"Beginning Yoga for the Blind and Visually Impaired", which is $31.95 USD plus shipping for the 5 CD Set, or $19.95 USD for an MP3 digital download, is a dynamic, inspiring , and very well thought out compilation produced by Marty Klein, a blind author and workshop facilitator, and Gretchen Hein, a certified Kripalu Yoga instructor.

Marty Klein has decades of experiencing practicing Yoga, and shares his experience and techniques through a system that is easy to follow from beginner to advanced Yoga practitioner. This comprehensive non-visual approach to teaching Yoga will change your body, mind, and spirit, if you embrace it.

TypeAbility: Keyboard Instruction Software for JAWS and Magic

Photo of Larry Lewis of Flying Blind, LLC demonstrating TypeAbility: Keyboard Instruction Software for JAWS and Magic. Click to view this demonstration on YouTube now. TypeAbility is a program that teaches the entire computer keyboard in 99 user-friendly lessons to aspiring computer keyboard users of all ages!

By the end of the lessons, the student will have mastered all of the letters, numbers, and punctuation, as well as navigation and editing within dialog boxes and text documents. TypeAbility is great fun for all ages and is a fantastic asset for any school, rehabilitation training center, or for itinerant teachers who provide adaptive computer training. It's also a great teaching tool for individuals wishing to improve their typing skills!

TypeAbility 4.1 for JAWS, is compatible with JAWS 8 and higher. Conveniently, you can use either a full version of JAWS, or the free JAWS demo. TypeAbility is also compatible with the screen magnification program MAGic. With MAGic, the partially sighted can not only listen to, but also see their typing lessons. TypeAbility for MAGic can be installed into MAGic 10.5 or MAGic 11. In that case, JAWS is not needed, because MAGic will provide both speech and magnification.

Learning how to launch, run, choose lessons and tasks, and how to close TypeAbility is very simple. After a few lessons with an assistant, a blind non-typing child will be able to use the program independently. TypeAbility is fun and appropriate for students of all ages. There are User Preferences that allow TypeAbility to conform to each student's needs. However, there are not such a bewildering number of complex options that learning how to use TypeAbility would be a mystery or chore. It's a cinch!

Though TypeAbility is very simple to use, it is both the most advanced typing program for the blind on the market, and also the most fun to use. TypeAbility offers support for one-handed typists and can be run on computers connected to a network.

    The standard AAI Professional Development Seminar is designed to accommodate 20 educators per seminar, though it can be scaled to meet the needs of any number of participants. Please contact us for additional information on larger groups.

    Pricing
    The cost for the live and in person version of the AAI Professional Development Seminar is $1,000.00 USD plus all pertinent travel expenses for Mr. Larry Lewis, Flying Blind, LLC's Founder, and the instructor who will be personally conducting each live and in-person seminar.

    The online version, which is also conducted by Mr. Lewis, is divided into three modules, with each module lasting approximately 1.5 to 2 hours. The cost of each module is $400.00 USD per module, if purchased separately, or $1,000.00 USD if all three modules are purchased at once. These modules may then be scheduled to be conducted on three separate agreed upon days, or throughout the span of a single day, based on the preferences of your educators.

    Why AAI is the Right Choice
    Flying Blind, LLC is keenly aware of today's economic climate, and we believe that by offering the AAI Professional Development Seminar in its current, comprehensive, and field-tested form, we will save you far more time, energy, and money than if you were to attempt to integrate these solutions without the proven resources and field tested information that we have built into this seminar.
