Reminder: GTT Victoria meeting, April 1, 2015

Reminder: GTT Victoria meeting tomorrow, April 1, 2015 at 1:30 PM in the Shaw Conference Room at Fort Tectoria, 777 Fort Street.

Empowerment is what results from opportunities to share.

GTT empowers members of the blind community by sharing information about assistive tools, strategies and technology to help gain equal access to information, download audio books, music and other reading materials through accessible Library Services, and use GPS for mobility and independent travel and so much more.

During our April meeting we will set aside time where everyone is welcome to meet, share and learn, and I will also ask each of you to state what you hope to get out of your involvement in GTT so that we can build an inventory of needs. From that we will recruit the resources needed in order to satisfy participant’s needs.

We will also engage in conversation about the cost of operating and maintaining smart phone contracts. Bring your thoughts and questions for the group to discuss.

GTT believes in sharing information and working together with our community and/or other organizations to build confidence through better understanding of adjustment to vision loss and using tools and technology to improve access to information. If you have any questions about the technology you’re currently using, bring you’re: Lap Top/iPad/eBook Reader/DAISY Player/Cell Phone along and we’ll set you up with someone who has answers. Perhaps you have questions about Accessing Music or Finding books and magazines. No question is too difficult to answer if we work together.

Although it isn’t necessary, if you let the Coordinator know a few days before the meeting it will help us ensure that you get your specific questions answered, or work with you on the device you are bringing to the meeting.
