CNIB Online Learning Opportunities

Tech Talk Tuesday

Have you heard about Kurzweil - software to scan and read print documents? Want to know how to search for and download audio talking books from the CNIB Library? Are you interested in learning how to customize JAWS voice settings? Do you have questions about assistive technology available for people with vision loss?

Join us each Tuesday from 6:00 – 8:00 PM (Eastern Time) to learn about the uses and challenges that today's technologies bring to our daily lives, both in the workplace and at home. Each session begins with an interactive discussion – everyone’s questions and ideas are valued and everyone benefits from each other's knowledge, wisdom, understanding and humor. The second part of the session focuses on a specific topic, based on expressed interests or needs.
