A free online basic skills session is being held in Bath on 1st June to help blind and partially sighted people get online and take their first steps in using technology.
Sight loss charity RNIB (Royal National Institute of Blind People) has been holding workshops across the UK to support people living with sensory loss in getting online as part of its ambitious Online Today project.
RNIB will be holding the workshop at No.2 Queen’s Parade, Bath, BA1 2NJ. The session will take place on Thursday 1st June 2017 between 11am and 3pm.
The session will be hands-on, including interactive demonstrations of how to get the most from products such as tablets, smartphones and eReaders.
Supported by the Big Lottery Fund, RNIB’s Online Today project aims to help 125,000 people living with sensory loss to get online, enabling them to use the internet for everyday tasks such as shopping, banking and staying in touch with friends and family.
Sunny Bains, Assistive Technology Coordinator, said: “Access to the internet and technology can open up a whole new world for people, but knowing where to start isn’t always easy if you’ve got sight or hearing problems. Our Online Today sessions are the perfect introduction, providing the basic skills and confidence to get online and explore all that is on offer.
“If you’re living with sight loss and are keen to take your first steps in using technology, sign up for the session on 1 June and find out the difference getting online could make to you.”
