Hello, I am BC Starkson, and I am the Computer Technical Specialist at Techno, and I am ready to help you meet your computer training needs. First, I want to let you know about my experience with computers and computer Access technology for the blind.

From March of 1988 to November 1993, I worked at the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center, RRTC, at Mississippi State University, and my main duties were to train rehabilitation professionals to use and apply speech, Braille, and large print computer access technology to a variety of job situations. From November of 1993 to February of 2002, I supervised and worked with the other computer access technology trainers at the Department of Veterans Affairs Southeastern Blind Rehab Center in Birmingham, Alabama to train over 350 Blind veterans from throughout the Southeast to use computers.

Since I started Techno in 2002, I have worked with Blind people from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, State of Georgia Vocational Rehabilitation for the Blind, the Valdosta City School system, Mississippi State University Rehabilitation Research and Training Center, and the State of Florida Division of Blind Services.

Below, you will find information about my knowledge, skills, and training abilities with computers and computer access technology for the Blind.
