Hello GTT Victoria members,
Yes, you read correctly. By popular demand, and as a result of some correspondence and a couple of meetings, we now have free meeting space, generously
offered by Greater Victoria Public Library, central branch.
Meeting time: 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM
Date: Wednesday, September 2.
Location: 735 Broughton Street
This month’s meeting will feature a presentation by Sky Mundell, who will present a comparison of the top four most popular non-visual screen reading solutions.
These are: Jaws for Windows, WindowEyes, System Access and NVDA (Non-Visual Desktop Access)
There will also be an update on what is happening with automated bus announcements in Victoria, as well as information about Vocal Eye descriptive service
coming to Victoria. And of course, there will be opportunity for questions, as well as suggestions about future meeting topics. We hope to see you there.
If you’re having trouble using one of your devices please bring it along so that we can set time aside to assist you individually.
The meeting will take place in the Community Room. It is the same room where CFB meetings were happening for a while. But please note that the door closest
to this room is no longer in use.
So, you must use the main entrance and walk all the way around. More detailed instructions are as follows:
When you enter the main doors of the library, you are facing south. Walk straight ahead until you’re almost at the service desk. Turn right (west) and
walk along a long hallway (up the ramp). Turn right again (north) and walk along another long hallway. Turn right a third time (east) and walk down the
ramp along a third hallway. Then finally, turn left (north) and walk along a very short hallway to where the door to the room will be directly in front
