About Me

Thank you for checking out my About Me page.

I am Jackie Brown, wife, mother and freelance writer. I live in Maghera, Northern Ireland, and am married to Ulsterman Martin. I have one son called Ian who is the apple of my eye.

I have lots of hobbies and interests including reading, music, sport, technology and writing. I am also totally blind, and use a raft of assistive technology to enhance my independence. The combination of using technology, and my writing skills, means I review a lot of gadgets and equipment that is suitable for someone with a visual impairment to use. You can check out my Reviews on the Reviews Page
for the most up-to-date pieces I have written.

I enjoy several voluntary commitments that give me the opportunity to meet lots of lovely people. These include:

  • • Branch Organiser for Mid-Ulster, Guide Dogs for the Blind Association (GDBA)
  • • Community Connector for the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB)
  • • Editor and Board Trustee for the British Computer Association of the Blind (BCAB)
  • • Guest contributor for Tech Talk, RNIB Connect Radio
  • • Guest contributor for Tech That, Sound Vision Online (Northern Ireland)
  • • Trainer for Hims Braille Sense products

Away from all my activities and hobbies, I care for my beautiful German Shepherd guide dog, Bumble, and enjoy the beauty and peace that living in Northern Ireland gives me.
