21st July 2020, NCBI Labs Technology Clubs invites anyone who is blind or visually impaired and interested in how technology can help overcome any barriers in daily life to participate in their Virtual Clubs.
Kyran O’Mahoney, NCBI Chief Technology Officer said “These Virtual Clubs are online Group Chats where we can learn about and discuss the latest in technology, equipment and Apps. They are fun and open conversations about technology to support people with sight loss. It is a great opportunity to learn from others on the tech they use as well as discover the latest information on new and emerging tech.”
Each club will have a NCBI Technology Trainer who is available to answer questions. When you join your club, you will be given a Microsoft Teams link where you can join a meeting on your computer or smart device. If you do not have a smart device, a phone number can be provided to you and you can dial in to these meetings.
Clubs are run throughout the country but as they are virtual you can request to join a club in any locations.
