Oct 20 –
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.
October 6: The Wonder of Web Browsers

We’ll answer these questions and more.
