Braille Transcription using WYSIWYG
This is a story on how Braille2000 became more accessible for the blind transcriber such as myself. Hello Everyone, welcome to another article here on Vocal. In my previous article on braille transcription I showed you how braille is done using simple formulas. Plus, in a different article, I discuss this concept in the music code; but, how does all of this work?

How I Live With a Disability
Hello folks, welcome to another article here on Vocal. It's been awhile for me. I last wrote in March with a great article talking about driving which got a nice award for it being on the front page on Vocal’s site in the appropriate category. Today, I want to take a different approach to an article and talk about living with a disability and what was done to support me both in the technology side, as well as life in general.

The Mass Shootings
This world is becoming a sad state of affairs. I just don’t seem to understand what is going on, especially with all of the recent mass shootings that have taken place of late. The most recent took place on a Sunday night in Las Vegas, and quite a number of people have died. One of the people killed was a young girl that started working for the sports team the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League. Other teams felt the effect the first week of the NHL season where there were moments of silence, even for one broadcaster who died in an unrelated manner. Every time this comes up, people want change in the ways guns are managed, but before I get into that argument, let's talk about our past history for a bit.

Can Social Media Really Be Bad for You?
I’ve written about articles I’ve read on my technology blog and have also listened to podcasts in regards to the subject. While I just recently posted about the Equifax breach on the new 01.media site posted to the web through the Vocal platform, I recently saw after my article published there, an article entitled: "Social Media Is Bad for Your Soul" by ALLISON K. JONES and it got me to thinking about posting my own thoughts about the subject. Mind you, I’ve been talking about this type of thing for awhile now, oversharing, posting where you are, telling people what you’re doing or eating, etc. are just indicators. Let's talk about what caught my attention in the article I read through Vocal’s 01.media site.
More On the Equifax Breach
The security industry is continuing to come out with more information in regards to the massive data breach at Equifax. This is not any ordinary breach, where a database was taken from a company and put underground for those people to sell, and others to report on it like Brian Krebs. This was done through a vulnerability in a piece of software which was able to give the data.
Hello everyone. As lots of us know, there has been a recent breach, and this one has me really worried. This has nothing to do with the recent ransomware attacks that have plagued the news, but more stolen data from social security numbers, credit card numbers, potential driver license numbers, and a staggering number I just don’t know what to say about.
