Subscribe to We Can Do!
If you wish, you can receive an alert in email when new posts are added to We Can Do. You can subscribe for free via “Feedblitz” at:
Signing up for email alerts is a two-part process. First you have to tell Feedblitz that you want to sign up. (If you are sighted, then please do that through the web at Feedblitz. If you’re blind, you do that through email; more instructions further below.) Second, Feedblitz will send you an email to ask you to confirm that you really do want to sign up. You will then need to follow the instructions in their confirmation email. You will NOT BE SIGNED UP FOR WE CAN DO EMAIL ALERTS until AFTER you respond to Feedblitz’s email with your confirmation. The reason Feedblitz does this is to help protect people from being signed up for email alerts without their knowledge or consent.
If you do not have a print disability that prevents you from using visual captcha, then please proceed now to Feedblitz to subscribe yourself there: http://www.feedblitz.com/f/?Sub=332241
Or, if you wish, follow We Can Do via Facebook.
Instructions for Blind People
If you are blind, visually impaired, or dyslexic, then you will need to subscribe in a different way. The usual web form at the Feedblitz site above asks subscribers to prove they are a human being–not a robot–by looking at an image and typing the letters they see. (i.e., they use visual imaging “captcha.”) This is not accessible to screen readers. It may also be difficult for some people with dyslexia. BUT Feedblitz says they will help you subscribe. If you are unable to subscribe via the feedblitz web subscription form then you can send an email to Feedblitz Support at firstname.lastname@example.org
Tell them you want to subscribe to the We Can Do blog at https://wecando.wordpress.com Also tell them whether you want these alerts via email, Skype, AOL IM, or Twitter (public or private).
Feedblitz says that they will help blind or visually impaired users subscribe to the blog(s) of your choice within one business day. This probably means 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. So if you try to sign up on Friday night in the United States then Feedblitz might not help until the following Monday.
I ALSO encourage blind, visually impaired, or dyslexic users to let me know that you are trying to subscribe. If you do this, then I can help make sure your subscription goes through as quickly as possible. Or I can help you follow up with Feedblitz if you run into trouble. You can contact me by posting a comment in the comments area below. (Be sure to put your email address in the field provided for it. You do not need to put your email in the body of your comment.) Or you can send me an email at ashettle [at] patriot.net.
However, if you are sighted with no print-related disability, then you are encouraged to please sign up yourself at http://www.feedblitz.com/f/?Sub=332241. My offer of assistance is primarily meant to be for people who might have difficulty completing the first part of the process themselves.
