News from the Federation Family

A Report from our Communications Committee:
Liz Wisecarver writes: The Communications Committee discussed several timely topics, including how to support survivors, news about the ongoing affiliate website updates, communication platforms and publications that can be used to reach out to members, and tips for hosting successful virtual conferences. I think discussing how communications can be used to support survivors was a particularly important issue. I also enjoyed hearing about hosting both state affiliate and national level virtual conferences. Thank you to all who attended and participated.

En-Vision America Celebrates Twenty-five Years:
From a beginning in the basement of a home in Normal, Illinois, En-Vision America has grown into a multi-national company helping thousands of patients throughout the United States, Canada, and overseas safely and independently access their prescription labels. From Talking Prescription Labels to Large Print, Dual-Language/Translation, Braille and even Controlled Substance Safety Labels, En-Vision America continues to expand and evolve to meet a growing need.

Braille Computer for Sale:
I’m needing to sell my Actilino Braille computer. It has sixteen cells and weighs one pound. It is about the size of a small billfold and fits easily into a purse or backpack.

If interested, please email Gail at [email protected].

For Sale:
I have a Braille notetaker device with adapter, manual (word document) and case called Actilino. I’d be glad to send it to anyone who can pay $200, and I believe it can be shipped free. If interested, please contact Gail Hamilton at 720-984-8082 or address inquiries to [email protected].
