Computer Solution for Blind and Low Vision Users
Welcome to a great product called CDesk! This is a stand-alone, all inclusive software program for the blind, low-vision, seniors, cognitive disabilities, or anyone one who wants their computer to be easy,( including new users) that enables access to the most used functions of their computer. CDesk in not just a screen reader or magnification program. It is a single program with 8 core applications, built from the ground up to be extremely intuitive, simple to use, and easy to learn by utilizing a consistent user interface. "PEGGY" is the friendly speech recognition system ( with a personality) that allows a totally hands free user experience. This is a high-contrast, large print, and fully speech enabled desktop that will allow you to do all of your important daily activities simply, easily, and cost effectively. You may even have a little fun.
One of the reasons we love this product is because it was created out of love. Randyce Wechter, a successful owner of a wholesale bakery company, was diagnosed with Optic Neuritis and lost her sight in both eyes. She was welcomed into the blind community and offered lots of support. Randyce tried many options on the market to try and maintain her independence with her everday computer needs and found that many were too complicated, too expensive, or both. She and her husband, Michael, a respected computer developer and programmer for 35 years , decided there had to be a better way. The development of the CDesk program took place and they were able to give back to the community that helped them and gave them support and friendship. CDesk is finally ready to help others regain the ability to be part of the computer world or join it. Additionally, every sale of CDesk results in a donation back to the low vision community to keep the resources flowing to those who need it most.
