Byron Meador

I have been legally blind since I was a child. My diagnosis is Starr-Gardts, a juvenile progressive form of macular degeneration. After many years of different occupations, including a 25 year stint as a bartender, I came to Signal Centers to gain additional blindness skills that would help me find a new career. Through the direction of the AT staff, I received my certification for JAWS, a screen reading software, and shortly thereafter was hired by Signal Centers to lead JAWS classes. In addition, I co-facilitate group meetings on adjustment to blindness, am part of transportation group which ensures reliable and safe transportation for blind citizens of Chattanooga and the surrounding areas, and also teach voiceover apps for Apple products.
