Why Your Donation Matters

[Picture is of Audio-Reader listener, Kevin E.]

You can help change lives!

Audio Reader listener Kevin always wanted to be a professional pilot. He already had his private pilot’s license when, at age 19, he suffered a spontaneous hemorrhagic stroke. After spending his 20th birthday in a coma, Kevin’s brain injury left him blind in the left side of both eyes. Unable to pursue his professional pilot’s license, Kevin went into the business side of things and is already quite accomplished in aviation management.

Audio Reader is helping Kevin study for his Accredited Airport Executive Certification, the highest level certification offered by the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE). Kevin is determined not to let his visual impairment stop him from being the best he can be. “I’m so grateful to Audio Reader for helping me! This is the certification that many airport CEO’s get. I’ve already passed the first part, and now I’ll be ready to pass it all.”

YOUR support is helping Kevin and other listeners follow their dreams. “I don’t know what I would’ve done without Audio Reader. I couldn’t find the materials in audio format” Kevin said. “Due to my brain injury, any computerized text-to-talk programs are really hard for me to listen to or pay attention to. Having the human voice through Audio Reader is a Godsend!”
