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.
SPECIAL NOTE: Just a reminder, don’t assume that because there has been a call on a certain day, at a certain time, that it will be the case every week.
In order to stay informed every week on what calls are happening on what days, please consider the weekly listings as your up to date schedule as there may be changes week to week moving forward.
For example, there will be no Monday Chat or Braille group this coming week.
