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.

Instagram is a social media platform that has been around since 2010. It can be downloaded for free in the App store. Instagram is for sharing photo and video content. You can create and share content with your family and friends. You can also view content created by businesses, brands, influencers, and other members of the community. Unlike other social media, Instagram is intended for and works best on your mobile device. Join us and learn about how this extremely visual, social media platform has transformed in the past decade to be more accessible to the blind and low vision community.
