Please share this invitation widely to anyone you think will benefit from our collective knowledge, or who might have expertise to offer. 


Come out and join us on December 3rd as we discuss the self-help/peer mentoring technology needs of Victoria residents who live lives as blind persons or with partial sight.  


For this initial meeting, and because it will be held in December we’ll try to have some fun.  The theme will be “Games People Play”, and we want you to bring your non-electronic, and electronic games/gadgets along and explain to the group what games you find interesting and fun, whether it’s on the computer, a mobile phone or a stand-alone device.  We also want you to bring along a small Christmas treat to share.  Know that only dark Christmas cake is real and that the white stuff isn’t yet finished.  Just saying.  


The second hour will be devoted to general discussion about assistive technology as it pertains to its use by people who are blind or partially sighted.  


To RSVP, please call Albert Ruel at,

The Get Together with Technology (GTT) program is an exciting program of the Canadian Council of the Blind which aims to help people who are blind or have low vision to explore low vision and blindness related access technology.  You can learn from and discuss assistive technology with others walking the same path of discovery.  


The group is made up of blindness related assistive technology users, and those who have an interest in using assistive technology designed to help blind and vision impaired people level the playing field.  The GTT group meets monthly to share their passions for assistive technology and to learn what others can offer from their individual perspectives.
