This is lots of great information for those that were not able to attend the meeting.
During the partner meeting a question was posed:
“Can ABLE Tech provide Internet, text or phone service for the inventory of devices which utilize connectivity so that we can effectively demonstrate those devices?”
Our research indicates the following mechanisms are available for ABLE Tech to provide that service:
Unfortunately, at this time, those are not affordable options for ABLE Tech to pursue. However, if any of the partners have other suggestions, please let us know as we would be happy to research alternate, affordable options which may make this possible.

Kathryn is 77 years old and lives in the Oklahoma County area. With the assistance of HLA, she was able to borrow the Pocketalker, to determine if this device would work for her. The Pocketalker, allows me to hear better and participate in small group meetings and social gatherings. This device has been very helpful.
