Our Original Story from May 18, 2015:
Check out this story written by Alice Brouhard for the Post Independent. It clearly illustrates how advocacy, including the petition to convince Apple, Inc. to modify its operating system, can have an effect in the world. If successful, Alice and Kara, along with their app developer, will have a chance to improve quality of life for a lot of people with disabilities.
Since many people who support Trinity Services, Inc., signed the change.org petition for Kara, we'll take a minute to say thank you
to everyone who has helped to bring attention and increased focus to this issue. If those efforts continue, hopefully Apple will be able to see this wisdom of making the necessary changes. http://www.postindependent.com/opinion/columns/16324315-113/guest-opinion-david-and-friends-versus-goliath
