You are invited to the CCB’s GTT Zoom meetings where we focus in on the technology needs and concerns of Canadians who are blind or low vision. The calls will take place over the accessible Zoom Conference system, which will allow participants to dial in using their landline phones, smart phones, or computers. You will find the Zoom link and phone numbers below the meeting listings. Please pay special attention to the “(note)” notation after some of the meeting listings. Different zoom platforms are used for different meetings and some require preregistration.
Enhanced security procedure remains in effect.
When you enter the waiting room before a meeting, please ensure that you give us a recognizable first and last name. If you are calling for the first time or from a land line, please e-mail the CCB’s Receptionist, (Shelley Morris) ahead of time to let us know your name and number so we will let you in. Shelley’s email is email@example.com.
If you need help doing these things or learning to use zoom, please contact us and we can help you.
YOU SPOKE….WE LISTENED!
One of the changes suggested by a few of the participants at our September 9th planning meeting was to have an CCB-GTT Open Chat in the evening. Great idea lets give it a go! The first Evening open chat will take place on Wednesday September 30th (we thought we would give you the scoop now so you can plan and mark your calendars) …. See you there!
Have you checked out any of our podcasts lately? Several of the recent CCB- GTT Presentations and CCB-GTT National calls have been turned into Podcasts. A special thanks goes out to Nolan for his hard work in putting the audio together! So, just in case you missed a presentation you may have a second chance to hear it via the podcasts. You can subscribe to the CCB Podcast feed by searching for CCB/Canadian Council of the Blind Podcast on the Victor Reader Stream, or your favourite smart device Pod Catcher.
CCB-GTT BEGINNERS CALL
Date and Time communicated to invited participants.
Our first group of participants are well underway and progressing in a friendly and informative fashion! We have limited the group size of this, and future CCB-GTT Beginners Call groups to a small number to ensure maximum support. If you are a beginner and would like to be included in a future group, please contact David Green at firstname.lastname@example.org
