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.
CCB-GTT BEGINNERS CALL
Date and Time communicated to invited participants.
Our first group of participants had another great session last week. 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 Greene at email@example.com
