Working for People with Sight Loss

Virtual Technology Club 26th July 2018

Join us from 7:00 pm on Thursday 26th July for our next Virtual Technology Club meeting. The Virtual Technology Club was established in April of last year in recognition of the fact 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.

This month we’re delighted to be joined by Martin Lawlor, who will introduce us to the SmartVision2 mobile phone, from French manufacturer Kapsys. The SmartVision2 is an Android phone with a tactile keypad.

Martin will discuss his own use of the phone and take us through some of his favourite applications.

As usual we will have time for questions in our open forum and we look forward to an engaging session.

New participants are always welcome, so if you haven’t been involved before, please do join the conversation!

Our Virtual Technology Club is using a meeting platform called Zoom to allow us all to connect and speak together. Zoom has a software client for Windows, Mac, iOS and Android, and what’s really great is that you don’t even have to install the software to join the meetings.

Our Virtual Technology Club User Guide will walk you step-by-step through connecting to our virtual meeting room on your computer, phone or tablet using Zoom.
