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

Opening workshop will focus on how to make use of the Ribbons in MS Word, which will be presented by Mike Gower of SpinCycle Productions. Bring your questions and frustrations to this vital session and Mike will take a stab at relieving your pain.

The second hour will, if time permits, focus on the Be My Eyes app for the iPhone, along with discussion on several other iOS apps related to health and nutrition. iTreadmill and My Fitness Pal are just two such examples.

Did you think that only sighted people read newspapers? Is Braille only read in paper formats? Do you have to be a TechnoWizard to use audio books for your reading pleasure? Let’s find answers to all of these questions and many more, so join us on May 4 for what promises to be an exciting session of sharing and learning.

Get Together with Technology (GTT) is an exciting initiative 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.
