Almost ten years ago I woke to discover I could no longer read or write. My life was completely changed and as I could not get any help from Government or private organisations I had to learn how to cope on my own. Luckily I discovered many avenues of accessibility using my iPhone but of course there were many aspects which fell short.

Over the course of months and years I developed a “calendar system” of my own and many people who have seen it have been congratulatory. The kudos are great for the ego but I would love to help others although have no idea at all where to start. Most people who are not visually impaired say it is too simplistic to be of interest but I do wonder if there are others out there who would be helped by it.
