OT: Accessibility: Jana Schroeder's Holman Prize Application

Perhaps Off Topic, but in a good cause.

This year I met Jana Scroeder, a blind person forced to change jobs as part of the social cost of Covid. Her outsider experience of computer coding training became a wish to make things better. She has applied for a Holman Prize ($25,000 over a year) to fund this. She’s also set up a survey to reach and know better those with similar wishes.

One simple way to help open to many is to volunteer to be a sighted helper for a code and math variant of BeMyEyes.org. I encourage you to listen to Jana’s pitch for a Holman prize, and if you want to help complete the survey (whether you’re blind or sighted, code or math, young or old). I’ve learnt a lot about accessibility from Jana.
