Working for People with Sight Loss

Announcing NCBI’s First ever Virtual Technology Club on Thursday April 6th

Virtual Technology Club

We’re delighted to be announcing details of NCBI’s first ever Virtual Technology Club.
We recognise that for many people with sight loss who rely on technology to live an independent life, it can be difficult to travel to access training or support, or to meet other users and share knowledge.
Our Virtual Technology Club will take place on line, so you don’t have to move from the comfort of your own home to get involved. We’ll learn and share from each other and hopefully we’ll create a space where knowledge and experiences can be exchanged freely.
If you can’t make a particular session, don’t worry, because we’ll be making the sessions available as podcasts so you can download them whenever you wish.

How does it work?

We’re using a piece of software that you’ll need to install on your computer in order to join the first meeting of the club, which is taking place on Thursday April 6th, at 7:00 pm. We’ve produced a detailed Virtual Technology Club User Guide which will walk you step-by-step through the installation and configuration of the software, and will allow you to connect to our virtual meeting room.

NCBI staff will be on hand from 6:00 pm on April 6th in the virtual room, for people who have any questions or technical issues.
in addition email support is available to you between now and the time of the first meeting so please do get in touch and we’ll be more than happy to help.
