    August 2: Tech on Task
    Whether you’re headed back to school, back to work, or just want to perform tasks more efficiently, productivity involves more than knowing the right screen reader or magnification commands. We’ll share our approach to managing time and tasks, choosing the right tools and format to get a job done, hearing screen readers and conversations at once, and explaining how we work with access technology to others.

    August 9: Take Note
    Are you tracking a dozen Zoom meetings a week? How about preparing for an upcoming exam? Are you trying to keep track of the names and numbers of folks you've met through online networking events? Perhaps you are preparing for school, in person, or in the virtual classroom. Maybe you are simply interested in learning different ways to take notes. We will discuss the different aspects to notetaking and the uses of adaptive notetaking tools and devices such as digital recorders, Braille devices, and notetaking solutions on smartphones.
