Chester Triplett

Military Veteran/Paralympic Athlete
"As a visually-impaired Military Veteran and Paralympic athlete, sharing my story and writing about my journey is very important. I work with Streamline to maintain an online hub for sharing my Paralympic journey and adapting to vision loss. Stargardt's Disease causes a loss of central vision so in order to adapt, I use several low vision aids that are a built-in accessibility feature with every iOS device. Equipped with these low vision aids, the AwareLabs platform and Streamline connectivity make it possible to upload videos, photos and enter all the text needed to build a website that represents the journey. As well, StreamLine Agency is always readily available to provide troubleshooting and help. In sum,AwareLabs and Streamline platform make it possible for a visually-impaired customer like myself to easily navigate my website, all the while, defeating vision loss and disability. Nice work team! "
