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.

Announcing the TTJ Summer Schedule

Memorial Day has come, and with it, the unofficial start of summer. Beginning Tuesday, June 15, 2021, TTJ will operate on our summer training schedule. There will be no free group courses offered during the summer. Help sessions will be reduced to one session per week, to occur each Tuesday at 3PM Eastern, 2PM Central. Help sessions will continue to be held twice a week until June 15, and free courses will continue until their scheduled end date. The currently in-session course, iPad For All Computing, will conclude tomorrow, June 2. Hourly service, paid training programs, TTJ specials, and training and support for gold, premium, and platinum support customers will remain available throughout the summer. Please get in touch with us if you have any questions, and be sure to stay tuned for special summer offers and information on our upcoming annual TTJ Tech Summit.

Apologies, today’s help session

Due to technical difficulties, today’s help session has been canceled. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. There was a technical issue with the website, and so unbeknownst to us, the link never got posted, even though it was indeed scheduled. Again we are sorry for the inconvenience. We will resume normal schedules tomorrow, so we will have class at 3 PM Eastern tomorrow, Wednesday, with the link being posted to google classroom. Our next free virtual help session will be this Thursday, May 27, 2021 at 3 PM Eastern time. The link will be posted Thursday afternoon as usual. Thank you so much for your understanding, and God bless you.
