Technology to help with vision impairment

Do you have a hard time seeing what is on your computer screen? Would you like to explore some assistive technologies to help you read? Do you have an Apple idevice and would like to learn more about VoiceOver?

Bob Purvis, Ph.D. is coming from Sitka to the SAIL office to demonstrate a computer program called ZoomText as well as a number of other assistive devices, software and tools designed to help people with vision impairment. President of the Southeast Alaska Independent Living (SAIL) Board of Directors, Bob has been legally blind for a number of years due to AMD or age related macular degeneration. He will be at the SAIL office at 3225 Hospital Drive, Suite 300, on Thursday, March 28 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.. Participants are encouraged to bring laptops if they have them so that a trial version of ZoomText can be put on their computer. If interested call SAIL @586-4920 to set up a time for a personal visit.
