Welcome to the next batch of posts from my old Bolt journal. This was the last month of my summer holiday before returning to university, and as such there wasn’t a great deal to mention. But I did have a nice lazy break in London with relatives, during which I got a big haul of music with my birthday money, plus I got hooked on a couple of new PS2 games. So I hope you enjoy this little collection of entries!
Here’s the next instalment of edited entries from my journal on the old social media site Bolt, for my new Throwback Thursday series. I wrote these posts while I was at university, and as it was my first time posting about myself online I was keeping personal details to a minimum. And I’m just covering a single month in each post from this point, as my journal entries were starting to get a bit longer as I settled into it, though not by much.
After my previous post, I did get a question asking if I used any assistive technology at university, and the answer is yes. I had magnification and speech software, a CCTV video magnifier, and a scanner with OCR software so I could scan in typed notes and pages from books. I don’t often use speech generally, but when I was at university and had a ton of stuff of read, it was essential. I had funding help from the Disabled Students Allowance as well.
So questions are always welcome as usual. But now let’s get on with my latest set of archived posts. I hope you enjoy!
