I am so excited to announce that I have a new accessibility widget on my website. In the upper right hand corner of my site you will find the USERWAY icon that looks like a human standing on an arrow. If you were to click on that icon, many wonderful options would appear. As you can see from the image above, there are many variations for a user to choose from to make the user experience much more enjoyable. How did I hear of this amazing widget you ask? Great question! Let me share a little story.
For the last three months I have been spending many hours a day on a newer social media app called Clubhouse. Clubhouse is an all audio app that allows you to communicate globally with like minded individuals in “real time.” Within the virtual walls of Clubhouse, I have found quite a village of amazing people and groups. Real Talk Podcasting being one of those wonderful groups/community. I have the honor of co-hosting a Podcasting Morning Chat Room Monday though Friday, 6:30-9:00 AM EST. We talk for hours about all things podcasting. Our community is very diverse and is made up of many individuals that have varying disabilities. I am embarrassed to admit I had not digested or thought of the challenges our fellow podcasters dealt with on a daily basis. I can say without a doubt, I am a better person because of these stories. To honor these amazing members of our community, the crew at Real Talk Podcasting decided to host a room where we would raise monetary donations. These donations will go to USERWAY.ORG, the maker of my new accessibility app that this blog references.
So now that I know better, I will commit to doing better. Doing better today is simply adding a very powerful widget to my website. Little steps add up to great distances. I am so honored to continue to grow as a person through my new relationships that I have been blessed with on Clubhouse.
