Accessible Education: A 3 Part Series

For the past several years, T-Base has partnered with Alliance for Equality of Blind Canadians (AEBC) by offering scholarships in order to help fund the educational pursuits of an outstanding blind, deaf-blind or partially sighted student in Canada who is continuing his or her academic education at the post-secondary level. Last year’s scholarship winner was Michael Staffen of Regina, Saskatchewan. With the announcement of this year’s scholarship recipient looming, we caught up with Mike and asked him about accessible education, accessible technology, and what advice he could give to blind students pursuing secondary education.

This is the first of a 3 part series from Michael that will lead up to our announcement of this year’s scholarship recipient.

Happy World Environment Day!

If you’ve been following our social media accounts and blog posts for the past 7 months, you may already know that T-Base has been giving back to the earth with the Planting by the Dozen (#tbasedoztrees) program. For every one tree we consume printing braille and large print statements, documents, and textbooks for our customers, we are reinvesting in the earth by planting twelve more trees across North America.

So Many Trees So Little Time

Happy Earth Day! If you have been following along on our social media properties, you’ll know we have been giving back to the earth by planting 12 trees for every 1 tree we consume printing braille and large print for our telecom, financial, and education customers. We print it because it’s a necessity – but that doesn't mean we can’t give back! There is no better day for you to join us than today, a day where we all celebrate the earth and do our part by giving back.

We're Sporting a New Look!

We have had the same logo for over a decade, and as a company, we have evolved, so it only makes sense that our branding evolves too. Our services are now offered from all touch points, all access methods, and in all formats. We are going for a new professional and modern image that better reflects who we are and what we do.
