Visually impaired people in Suffolk get technology support
Eighteen blind and partially sighted people from Suffolk recently took part in a workshop in Kesgrave to learn about the accessibility features of popular computers and mobile devices.
Run by Action for Blind People and funded by RNIB, the free event was one of three workshops designed to inform people with sight loss about technology available to help them communicate and live independently.
Paul Nugent, Assistive Technology Coordinator at Action for Blind People, says: “The Ipswich Blind Society asked us to design this event around Apple products in response to specific requests from their service users. It made sense to run a workshop dedicated to helping people make the most of the accessibility features that comes standard in most Apple devices, as well as allowing them to share personal experiences with their peers.”
