Please share this invitation widely to anyone you think will benefit from our collective knowledge, or who might have expertise to offer.

Come join us on January 7 as we enjoy a presentation on the National Network of Equitable Library Service by Allan Carlson from the BC Ministry of Education. Allan will let us know what NNELS is, how to access it, what devices you need and where you will find support through your local Library Branch to effectively find and secure the reading material available.

The second hour will be devoted to general discussion about assistive technology as it pertains to accessing both pleasure and work related accessible reading material for those of us who are blind or partially sighted.

Did you think that only sighted people read newspapers? Is Braille only read in paper formats? Do you have to be a TechnoWizard to use audio books for your reading pleasure? Let’s find answers to all of these questions and many more, so join us on January 7 for what promises to be an exciting session of sharing and learning.

To RSVP, please call Albert Ruel at,

The Get Together with Technology (GTT) program is an exciting program of the Canadian Council of the Blind which aims to help people who are blind or have low vision to explore low vision and blindness related access technology. You can learn from and discuss assistive technology with others walking the same path of discovery.

The group is made up of blindness related assistive technology users, and those who have an interest in using assistive technology designed to help blind and vision impaired people level the playing field. The GTT group meets monthly to share their passions for assistive technology and to learn what others can offer from their individual perspectives.
