If you are a Deaf-Blind person in need of new technology and training to access email, social media, Zoom, or other distance telecommunication, this one’s for you. LightHouse’s iCanConnect (iCC) program is hosting a series of Q&A Sessions for interested community members and potential applicants with Nai Damato, the iCC access technology trainer, and Alyah Thomas, the program assistant. The iCanConnect program provides eligible, deaf-blind, low-income applicants of all ages with new technology, training, and support after training is complete. We can provide a range of equipment depending on individual need and skills, for example: iPhones with Braille displays; computers with screen readers and noise canceling headsets to hear JAWs; assistance with upgrading software such as ZoomText or JAWS; or providing braille displays to folks who can no longer hear the speech on the screen reader, but can read email using a braille display.
If you or someone you know might be interested in the program, please join us at one of the following dates:
January: Tuesday 1/12 from 3:00-4:00pm or Friday 1/15 from 12:00-1:00pm
February: Friday 2/19 from 12:00-1:00pm
March: Monday 3/15 from 3:00-4:00, Friday 3/19 from 12:00-1:00pm
