VPAD+ Time-Limited for Deaf Canadians

UPDATED (as of Jan 30): creditcardpaymentform

Hello Vancouver Deafies,

I’m posting this message on behalf of Darryl Niefer, Viable Representative, ViableDC08

He would like to get the message out, as if there is a number of VPAD+ purchases from Vancouver, he will come out to Vancouver and install for you all.

I would like to emphasize that this is a very special LIMITED-TIME ORDER for Canadians.

Hello Vancouver Deaf!

My name is Darryl Niefer, Viable Representative, ViableDC08. Some of you may remember me from Calgary’s Deaf Canada Conference last year in July.

We have exciting news — you can get a VPAD+!

What is a VPAD+? Check it out: http://www.viable.net/product/vpad

Viable uses a different way to order the VPAD+s here in Canada, rather than the regular orders through the US Viable website, which is good only for US customers. Please note, this is a TIME LIMITED OFFER. I hope to have plenty of orders soon and come before the end of January for installations before I go back to the States. Also, other provinces also bought many VPAD+ so this means that right now, not as many left in my stock for Canadians-only.

You can order up to two units of the VPAD+ for $99 US each plus shipping (approx $20.00)! 🙂

Please order ASAP!

Ready to order VPAD+?!!?

Canadians, please follow the instructions below:

How? Email with accounting@viable.net.

Please provide us your name, your home address, your credit card information – e.g. MC or Visa or Discover, etc, numbers, date expiration, exact name from the credit card and numbers from back of the credit card. And then, the Viable representative will give you your receipt at your place during installation.

Also, before the installer arrives, you need to have a VSN (Viable screen name) which you need to register for. What is this? Each VPAD+ must have different VSN. It is like your sign in name, and will show up when you call other people using a VP.

If you don’t have one, please get one now.

Easy to register! Please go to https://www.viable.net/register/vsn1. Hurry!

Please email your new/old VSN and your name to Karunya Saumel, sales manager at karunya.samuel@viable.net

Lastly, please reply back to me letting me know you already ordered and registered your new VSN.

We will give you a new Viable number during or after installation.

After ordered, Viable representative will come and install at your place this month, January 2009!

This is only time of this year that the installations will be done! Because this is a time-limited offer, with limited supplies available.

Sorry for all of those who have been long waiting! Now ready! 🙂

If you have any question, please feel free to email me at viabledc08@gmail.com.

BCSD/Slope Elementary Attempt New Guinness World Record

We are searching for someone to act as a witness for the BC School for the Deaf’s participation in attempting to reach a new Guinness world record!
On Friday January 23 (tomorrow!) BCSD/South Slope Elementary is involved with several other schools in Burnaby in attempting to reach the highest number of students having 5 Robert Munsch books read to them at the same time. We need someone outside of our school community to verify our participation. The witness simply has to sit and enjoy watching the classroom teacher sign the stories to our Deaf students.
If you are interested in being a witness for a grade 6/7 class and are available from 11:00am until later in the afternoon, please contact Myrna Ziola as soon as possible at 604-664-8300 (voice) or Myrna.Ziola@sd41.bc.ca

Thank you for your consideration,


Myrna Ziola
Vice – Principal
BC School for the Deaf
