Digital sessions for blind and partially sighted people
Learn how to make the most of smart-phones, tablets and other devices.
A Big Lottery-funded project, Online Today, which is run by RNIB Scotland in conjunction with Culture Perth and Kinross and Vision PK, is continuing with a series of drop-in sessions at the AK Bell Library in Perth. These sessions will help people of all ages with sight loss overcome barriers to getting online and benefiting from technology.
Project co-ordinator Sheila Sneddon said: “Millions of us rely on the internet for everyday tasks such as shopping, banking and staying in touch with friends and family. For people who are blind and partially sighted, getting online can make a huge difference to being able to live independently. The friendly, informal drop-in sessions we are holding will offer training and advice on how to browse the internet and use smartphones and tablets. We aim to give people the confidence to make sure they’re not being excluded from today’s digital world.”
Visit the library to see what technology can do for you.
