    Tech Together Online: Tech for Reading Printed Text


    Jan 5

    Join the LightHouse Access Technology team for a series of informal conversations on technology topics relevant to these current times. Tech Together is a chance to share your knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other blind technology users. LightHouse Access Technology staff share tips and resources on each week’s topic. Then there is time for LightHouse students and friends to add to the conversation, as we all learn from each other.

    Topics are decided on a rolling basis as our community’s needs evolve during shelter in place.

    January 5: Tech for Reading Print Text

    We’ll discuss apps and techniques for reading printed text, such as paper mail, package directions, and image files with written text.

    Join us for one or all these conversations.

    RSVP online for the January 5 Tech Together.

    Or leave a voicemail at 510-925-2943. Online registration is preferred.

    Safe and Confident Movement for O&M Travel​

    All students, customers, visitors and staff are required to wear a mask indoors in gatherings of 25 people or more, or if asked to do so in someone's personal space at all our sites.

    Safe and Confident Movement for O&M Travel​


    Jan 5

    Adults 55 and over are invited to participate in a 6 session course geared towards improving safety in movement for indoor and outdoor activities. Exercises performed during class will help students feel more ‘sure footed’ when navigating stairs, walking over uneven sidewalks, and moving around obstacles while using a white cane or dog guide. Exercises designed to ease the transition between sit-to-stand movements will also be incorporated.

    In addition to completing simple and dual task activities, participants will learn how to conduct an at home safety assessment, evaluate elements that improve footwear stability, and develop a personalized balance program. After the 6 session course, participants can expect to feel more self-assured in personal movement patterns and less anxious about falling.

    The classes will be taught via Zoom or phone at the following dates and times -
    • Week 1: Tuesday, January 5 and Thursday, January 7 from 3:30-4:45pm
    • Week 2: Tuesday, January 12 and Thursday, January 14 from 3:30-4:45pm
    • Week 3: Tuesday, January 19 and Thursday, January 21 from 3:30-4:45pm

    There are no costs associated with this course for adults 55 and over living in the following counties - Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Marin, Humboldt, Del Norte, and Trinity. For those adults living outside the noted counties, the course is 150.00, plus materials.

    To registration is currently closed for this class due to it being full with a waitlist.
