When I first received my iPhone in 2014, I did not have the opportunity to learn how to use the device until my trip to Ablelink Australia in Melbourne where I was trained in the use of the smartphone which was very new to me.


I also gradually got the hang of using the iPhone and the focus 40 Blue braille display to communicate with sighted people. 

The concept of using the iPhone and the Braille display to transmit messages through a program called Bluetooth and voiceover which converts printed words in to Braille for me to read messages.


It helped me to become very social and open minded to everything because I enjoy meeting and talking with people when I am out and about.


It gives me the opportunity to open up to the world through facebook and some other apps especially music, reading books and texting/messenger.
