Accessible technology can open a world of possibilities for people living with sight loss. It can help with reading, with accessing the internet, with navigating and with using social media to name only a few uses. Our new technology services are designed to provide you with the support that you need to use technology in your day to day life.
Technology Awareness Sessions
Join us for a practical session that will help you to explore how to use smart phones, tablets and computers to access the internet. We will provide you with an overview and demonstrations of how you can make the most of technology in your day to day life including use of phone applications, speech and magnification software, video magnifiers and smart speakers.
Sessions are being delivered at various locations across North Staffordshire subject to demand so please get in touch to book your place.

Our one to one technology support service can provide you with expert advice and support to use phones, tablets, e-readers and computers.
