Yes. I had asked if anyone knew of funding that might be available for
Kurzweil or OpenBook for someone who does not qualify for voc rehab -
unemployable or most other programs as I am too old -61, and medicaid
doesn't have funds for something this expensive and not medically necessary.
They don't even pay for glasses last I needed them. Nor would the lions club
down here (Miami) two years ago. There are limits to free demos.
If I can learn to validate using rtf on Wordperfect of wordpad I will settle but they were driving me crazy - I spent more time undoing than doing.

Dear Nancy and Natasha,
Thanks for the idea. I have not had much luck with tem even for glasses but I gave the suggestion to my social worker and she is going to try her luck.

4. Last but not least. I don't qualify for voc. rehab as I am too old and will never be employable because of the MS. I cannot earn a living as anything
over $100 a month will cost me my medcaid and I cannot earn enough to compensate so I am left with out any idea where to get funding for Kurzweil or any
other equally expensive program. I have not credit cards and no credit so that avenue is also closed. The social workers I know have not been able to
help but are still looking but any ideas would be appreciated.
This is a lot for one email so I would be grateful for any help with any section.
Have you tried approaching a local Lions Club? Perhaps they would have a special fund of some kind.
Nancy and Natasha
