Dedicated to Improving the Lives of Blind and Visually Impaired People

Upcoming Webinars of Note

The National Federation of the Blind (NFB), through their Center of Excellence in Nonvisual Access, is offering the following virtual events via Zoom:

On March 22, 2023, from 1 to 5 pm ET, the Google Workspace Seminar will explore how to use Google’s “web-based productivity suite,” which includes tools to ensure that documents, spreadsheets, and presentations are accessible to those with disabilities. Participants will learn how Google Workspace’s applications work with a screen reader and review some best practices for developing accessible content.  Register here for the March 22 Google Workspace Seminar.

On March 28, 2023, from 2 to 3 pm ET, the Remote Access Boutique will address remote desktop access, which has “always been challenging for blind people,” due to it being either not accessible at all or limited in their use. Now a new alternative, Pneuma Solutions, has another accessible offering that can establish a connection easily “with a simple keyword” and does not require a screen reader, but works with JAWS, NVDA, or Narrator. Register here for the March 28 Remote Access Boutique.

Also on March 28, 2023, from 3 to 4 pm CDT (4 to 5 pm ET), the University of South Dakota, Center for Disabilities: SD Deaf-Blind Program will be hosting the Sensory and Complex Needs FREE Webinar: Daily Living Skills for Vision Loss. Those participating will learn about daily living skills, techniques, and strategies that can be helpful to a child or adult with vision loss. Adaptations for several tasks will be covered, including morning routines, cooking, cleaning, and more. Learn more at the link above.
