(NOTE) With respect, there will be no meetings on Wednesday November 11th, 2020. We encourage everyone to take some time to reflect upon the past and honour those that have given so much, that we can enjoy the freedoms that we have today. This would include, and is not limited to those that were blinded in war times. Through their powerful strength in working together, they created the road to equality that we continue traveling and working on today, for the good of us all.  Remembrance Day, lest we forget……

There arrival includes vulgar language and/or disturbing video content. Once in the zoom room it is impossible for a host to get rid of them, so…..

When you enter the waiting room before a meeting, please ensure that you give us a recognizable first and last name.

  • Have you ever found yourself asking which type of phone should I get for my needs? An IPHONE or an Android? The truth is both have their advantages and disadvantages, but Apple gets most of the press. That is why your hosts for the call, Tracy and Matthew, have put this group together. We want to share some of the perks of using an Android device. More importantly we want your input as blind or partially sighted users and are here to discuss any questions you may have. This is not an android Only group, we welcome the input of Apple users and users of all experience levels. In our first meeting we will be discussing the purpose and goals of this group and will mention some of the excellent accessibility features available on Android devices. After that, the floor is yours!!! We want to hear what works for you and what issues you may have. The group can help you with your issues. We look forward to your participation!!!   CCB GTT Android User Group use this link to attend.
