Educator Describes Bookshare to Serve Disabled Veterans and Senior Citizens


I live in San Antonio and we have some fantastic medical complexes. With the military being so prevalent everywhere. We also have the Wounded Warrior Center for the Intrepid. We also have a higher population of
senior citizens. Our wounded warriors very often have a physical disability or maybe from shrapnel that causes them to have a visual impairment. Bookshare can work for them as well. They can have access to text so that they can further their education or just to find high-interest reading that
they enjoy. The seniors that I’m finding, and my own dad has a visual issue right now, the senior citizens can also have access to Bookshare so they can also read the magazines and newspapers and the books that they might want to
talke about in the book club with their friends, so it’s really a
beautiful opportunity for access for a whole wide
range (of books) as people transition from being
school-aged children to looking at post-secondary academic
endeavors up and through their senior years as their enter twilight.
