2:00 pm: Tech Together
Sep 10 –
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

4:30 pm: Learn More About Better Market Street
Oct 3 –
You are invited to a community gathering on Thursday, October 3, to learn more about and give input to the Better Market Street project.
Better Market Street is the City's multi-agency project to transform 2.2 miles of Market Street from Octavia Boulevard to Stuart Street, enhancing safety and accessibility, improving transit performance, replacing aging infrastructure, and revitalizing the corridors streetscape.
The project is advancing toward approval this fall and in the coming months. Team members from San Francisco Public Works and San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency will be joining us for community meetings to provide updates on the project.
At our first meeting, we will hear an overview of the project with an emphasis on the first phase of the project: Market Street between Eighth and Fifth streets. The team will also discuss proposed transit stops and passenger drop-off zones.
Please join us at 1155 Market Street, 10th floor, on Thursday, Oct. 3, 4:30-6 p.m.
RSVP directly to Jennifer Blot of San Francisco Public Works: Jennifer.email@example.com or (415) 554-6993.
|Oct 4||Oct 5|
The events for the upcoming week are read aloud on our event hotline every Friday, which can be accessed by calling (415)694-7325.
