Featured in the August 2015 meeting will be an in-depth discussion on the Technology@Work program aimed at helping British Columbians with disabilities who are volunteering, or who are working for pay and are in need of assistive technology in order to do their work. This includes people who are self-employed, and those who have a job pending to start in the next couple of months. Please bring your ideas and questions.

Donna Hudon will relay to the group the experience she enjoyed while attending the NFB annual convention in Orlando Florida in early July.

We will also engage in discussions about what people might be in need of relative to daily living skills and the use of assistive devices for routine tasks around the home, recreation and leisure activities. Bring the gadgets you use to assist your independence, and/or the issues you’re facing for which you haven’t found a solution yet.

The Get Together with Technology (GTT) program is an exciting program which helps 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.
