The Accommodating Your World Using Technology workshop series will teach blind or partially sighted users how to use technology as an extension of vision utilizing accessibility software programs, applications, and built-in features within technological devices.
Each session provides an additional tool to complement an individual’s skill set. With the primary focus on the utilization of technology in creating an accessible world, the series will also have an employment component to add to the tool kit. Learn Job Readiness Skills, How to Network With LinkedIn, How to use AI for Punctuality, Social Media Etiquette and much more!
Participants who complete a minimum of 12 virtual sessions will receive a virtual certificate of completion that can be put into their resume and will also be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a prize!
