CCB-GTT PRESENTATION

Wednesday, September 29, 2021, 1:00 PM Eastern/10:00 AM Pacific:

Host: Kim Kilpatrick

Presenter: Michael Feir

The latest version of iOS has just been released. There are hundreds of changes. Michael Feir will explain some of his favourites so far. For people feeling that rotor frustration, relief is a two finger four-tap away. VoiceOver now has quick settings which make it easy to access a wide range of convenient settings without using the rotor. Notes has gotten a new organization method called tags which helps keep things straight without making lots of folders. The Weather app has gotten a complete makeover and packs more information. Michael will show you how a new VoiceOver feature called group navigation can turn the sprawl into a quick and tidy experience.

Braille Literacy Canada presentation

Presenters Jen Jesso and Jen Goulden

Topic: Duxbury for Braille Readers

The Duxbury Braille Translator (DBT) is probably the most well-known braille transcription software in the world, and it can produce high-quality braille in more than 100 languages. It’s also extremely accessible, enabling braille readers to play an active role in creating our own electronic or hard copy braille documents. 

All are welcome, but the focus of this session will be on using Duxbury with a screen reader and braille display. We hope you can join us!

(NOTE) To register, send an email to info@blc-lbc.ca up until the start of the workshop. The zoom credentials (different from those used by CCB GTT) will be sent to those who register.

CCB members get in free to BLC workshops.

CCB-GTT SUMMER PROGRAM

In 2020 the full CCB GTT program ran all summer without stopping. We felt that it was important to do, as we were all experiencing difficult and challenging times. A break for our staff is long overdue.

We will be limiting our program to ONE CCB-GTT SUMMER OPEN CHAT session per week from July 1st to September 3rd 2021. This weekly zoom call will take place on Wednesdays, 1pm eastern, 10 pacific, beginning on July 14 (July 7th has been cancelled due to the NFB convention).

Hosts for this weekly session will rotate. This once a week schedule will remain in effect up to and including the week ending September 3rd. Communication about the CCB GTT program beyond September 3rd will be available via this process in early September.

(Note) The CCB-GTT ANDROID GROUP and the CCB-GTT NORTHERN ONTARIO AND RURAL GROUP will continue to meet over the summer, details and topics will be announced next Wednesday.

For many the first full week in September marks the beginning of the new work/school year. Summer, for the most part, is behind us and it’s once again time to get down to business. Tonight we thought we would assemble and discuss the CCB GTT program. What do you like and what don’t you like? Should we continue with the three a week open chat sessions? What are your thoughts about the “tech” vs “non tech” topics that we’ve enjoyed thus far? What sort of topics and guests would you like to see at future “presentation” sessions? Any thoughts about the future of the National, Beginners and Youth calls? Are you enjoying the Podcasts, should we try and do more? etc. Any and all comments, questions and concerns welcome. All three team members, David, Kim and Corry will be on the line. This is your opportunity to voice your opinion!
