Over the years technology has changed how we live, and as someone who was late in joining this type of thing, I struggle to cope in ways I would never have considered.
Being an engineer I got my first mobile phone and computer in the 1990s, and was forced into a life that, I found very hard to do without formal without training or support in computers.
The mobile was used as I was on call as an engineer 24 hours a day, and the MS-DOS computer
was to help me do my reports and estimating, etc through the working day.
This was a far cry from today’s computers, and a lot slower.
However today we have moved on to things like online meetings, like zoom, something I now struggle
to cope with it.
Seeing different faces in front of me these days fills me with terror, even though my wife says I used to speak to big audience in conferences etc. This is why I struggle to cope with things like zoom, as I see so many faces and cannot remember who is who, or who is talking.
Coupled with hearing problems, I struggle to cope with different toned voices
