The pages provided here are meant to serve as a resource to provide useful information so it might not look that fancy. If you have trouble accessing these disablity resource pages please write me.
These pages were created and are maintained solely by Jim Lubin, who is a C2 quadriplegic, completely paralyzed from the neck down and dependent on a ventilator to breathe, using an keyboard/mouse emulator with a sip and puff switch to type morse codes. This site has been online since 1994.
I have been busy with other projects, so this web site might not get updated as frequently as it had been in the past. Information will be updated when I have time.
This site can now be reached using the shorter URL www.makoa.org. “Makoa” is a Hawaiian word that means “courageous”.
Comments and/or suggestions are welcome!
Please use this form if you know any sites to add.
