Good morning, Andrew,

Good morning, Andrew,
Unfortunately for us, every thing's turning out to be tech/ffine 
motor-oriented, posing still an additional barrier to access. I do 
use a SmartPhone but fortunately, it has a capability of its 
functionality being triggered with voice. since my own facility with 
fine motor is ineffectual at best, I am a little reliant on my 
roommate's whom is also total but possesses facility with a fine 
motor demension  of occupational work.08:24 PM 10/27/2019, andrew
