Jamel and the Nova Chat 7

Posted on 2012-06-26 14:17:38 by Admin under Success Stories

My name is Jamel Mills. I live in New York City. I am artistic. I want to show people I can do some things without speaking. I love dancing and I am writing a novel and a musical. I am also a loveable, elegent, and sensitive dude.  I like listening to Raggaeton music. Raggaeton is Latin and Caribbian music and almost all songs are sung in Spanish. I took Spanish in high school so I understand almost all of words. I love my NOVA chat 7.  I can finally talk after all these years. It's not hard to use and its light weight. I use myCore ss vocabulary file. I can take pictures and go on the web. I chose to use Brian, the adult male British voice because my best friend Cheryl has a British accent. I even used the memo on my device to write this story and email it to Saltillo. I hope you enjoyed my story.


My Story- Adil Sanai

Posted on 2012-06-26 14:13:16 by Admin under Success Stories

My name is Adil Sanai. I am a Muslim. I lived in Pakistan until I was 15 years old. There are no schools for people with disabilities there so I never went to school. I couldn't walk or close my mouth. I did not have a wheelchair so my family carried me everywhere. When I came to the United States I received medical help and had many surgeries. I was very determined to have a better life here. So I exercised really hard to get better. I can now walk and close my mouth. I now attend AHRC Queens Workshop in New York City. I also work at Marshall's three days a week. Last year I became an ambassador for Saltillo Corporation. I use a ChatPC device so people can understand what I have to say. It's small and easy to use. I can make changes on the device by myself. My story is also on the disability.gov website.
