Jun 29

Join the LightHouse Access Technology team for a series of informal conversations on technology topics relevant to these current times.

For a second summer, both the American Council of the Blind and the National Federation of the Blind will be holding their summer conventions virtually. Whether you’ve never attended such a gathering of blind community, or you’re a veteran convention goer, we’ll share all the ways you can explore virtual exhibit halls, connect with other attendees, and stream the main events.

RSVP for Tech Together Online: Virtual Blindness Conventions or leave a voicemail at 415-694-7618. Online registration is preferred.

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.
