The use of technology is an integral part of our lives. For people with disabilities, technology is even more vital as it balances the playing field and helps ensure success and independence. Estin has been totally blind since the age of 7 months due to a traumatic brain injury caused by a baby-sitter. Estin attended regular public schools and began college at the age of 19 and lived independently on campus until he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree. Estin began utilizing technology at a very young age, both in school and in his everyday life. In his senior year of college, Estin started his own company called En-sight. He realized that there was a desperate need within the school systems for someone to teach technology and to make the current technology accessible to the disabled student. Estin became the expert. He works with teachers and students alike to ensure that their educational experience is a success. As the word of Estin’s company got out, the corporate world also began requesting Estin’s services. He often works with company’s to ensure their software is accessible to employees with disabilities; and recently began working with software companies to ensure that the software they were selling was accessible.
