"Techno Tiger" B.C. Starkson with Vision Specialists in North Carolina

In July, MSU-RRTC consultant B.C. "Techno-Tiger" Starkson provided instruction for Vision Specialist students in North Carolina as part of a special session of the graduate certificate program arranged specifically by the state for rehabilitation counselors and supervisors. Starkson covered multiple areas related to workplace technology: introduction to computers, operating systems, screen readers, large print software, tactile devices, and optical character recognition (OCR) systems. Starkson also presented a unit on concepts of job analysis. Students practiced evaluating a variety of computer assisted technologies (CAT) for the blind, conducting job analyses, and recommending appropriate CAT for jobs when performed by workers who are blind.
