Lupita Salazar talks to us about how she learned to read at 6 years old (just like everyone else) through Braille. She was highly influenced by my awesome friend Lore Schindler, who taught Tech and Braille to her and the other students in the Los Angeles Unified School District. He explains why Braille is so important to literacy when many believe audio is a substitute for being able to read. Lupita is a hard core tech head who just loves to experiment and learn new tech (she even used Android for a year just to understand it!) She’s funny and passionate and has a great perspective that I really enjoyed. You can find Lupita @queenofthesea31 or email her at [email protected].

What a great interview! I’ve shared it with not only colleagues, but also some vendors of assistive technology. I loved Lupita’s focus on the importance of braille literacy and her descriptions of how she takes advantage of Apple’s accessibility features that are built into their technology devices. Thank you Allison for your “slight Apple bias”, and for your inclusive podcasts!
