Dec 8 –
Join the LightHouse Access Technology team for a series of informal conversations on technology topics relevant to these current times. 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.
Topics are decided on a rolling basis as our community’s needs evolve during shelter in place.
December 8: Tech for Staying in Touch
If you’re going to be physically distant from friends and family this holiday season, make sure you’re up to date with all the voice and video apps you can use to connect with friends near and far.
December 15: Tech for Description
Whether you want to know what is in a photo or get live descriptions of scenes and objects in the world around you, technology brings many options. From crowd sourced descriptions from the community, to AI object recognition.
December 22: Tech Tales
During this all-audience participation gathering of Tech Together Online, we invite you to share a brief tale of Access Technology past, present, or future. Whether you share your memories of your first AT, current favorite tools, or a wish for technology of the future, this will be a fun time to come together before the holiday break.
Join us for one or all these conversations. RSVP to AT@lighthouse-sf.org or leave a voicemail at 415-694-7343. RSVP by email is preferred.
