Meet loc dots

 

Hi there!  It’s Donna and thank you for allowing me to come into your inbox once more.  Today I’d like you to meet loc dots.

 

Talk about the lower levels of technology and you can easily say that loc dots is not even classified as technology.  I would say that it is  more like someone’s creative thinking, ingenuity, and a way to bridge the gap.

 

The good thing about loc dots is that it can be used by so many people.  From the one who has no vision to the one who has high partial vision and those in between.

 

So what exactly is loc dots?  They come in packages and they come in various shapes, sizes, and colors.

 

You can use loc dots to mark almost anything.  From screens and panels to file folders, CD cases, and so on.  I would recommend however that you use them to mark spots on your screens.  You can use something more appropriate to mark your CD cases and I’ll talk about this in another blog.

 

Loc dots really do make great indicators.  You peal off the back of the dot and then place it on the spot that you wish to mark.

 

For those with enough vision to see colors, you can definitely use the colored dots to further help you distinguish spots.  However, if you are unable to use various colors then there are the various shapes or even the sizes.

 

I bought my packages of loc dots a few years ago and I have been having a great time using them.

 

So why not go out there and purchase a package of loc dots just to try them out?  They are economically priced.

  1. I think we do need to support our assistive venders in some things. Some stuf is over priced. If your in a pintch though and you need some emergency dots we found some at the dollar store. Assistive tech I should point out is better because you can get the different sizes and shapes. some Dollar store may have some: oh my goodness I need these in an hour were very screwed dots to get you buy. Just something we noticed 1 afternoon. Thank Bonnie. smiles
