2:00 pm: Tech Together
Jan 14 –
Do you use accessible technology regularly, but don’t have time to keep up with what’s new and what’s changing? Do you sometimes hit roadblocks in your technology use and wish you could problem solve with someone else? Do you love your iPhone or iPad and want to learn more about accessible apps? Are you a screen reader or magnification user who’s trying to adapt to increasingly complex websites? Do you just want to talk about technology and the latest developments for blind and low vision users?
Tech Together is a monthly technology learning group of blind and low vision technology users. People who are blind are resourceful and clever, but there is no reason we should each have to reinvent the wheel, or the app, for ourselves. In these sessions, we will discuss the topics that are of interest to the group, and help one another to understand troubleshooting, find app recommendations, and learn about the latest in Tech… Together! Each session will be facilitated by LightHouse Access Technology specialists, but the content of the event is for the participants to decide on for themselves. Come with ideas on topics and bits of news and software you want to share with your friends.
If you are brand new to access technology, you may wish to book an individual appointment with an Access Technology instructor before joining this group. This group is free and open to all, but a current LightHouse waiver is required. To make sure you are registered as a LightHouse student, contact Erin Luaridsen, Director of Access Technology, at 415-694-7368 or firstname.lastname@example.org
