There are many ways in which we are helping people with a visual impairment learn about new and potentially life-changing technology or get to grips with computers, the internet or mobile phones and the latest GPS and orientation aids.
Our home visiting technology service will help you set up and familiarise you with your home computer. We can show you how a few simple changes, such as enlarging the text, adjusting the resolution, choosing a different colour or using speech software can help you to use your computer in the way that you want to opening up a whole new world of opportunities for greater independence.
Please call 0115 9706806 to arrange an appointment. Prices for a visit are just £7 (subject to change).
As well as teaching computer skills we support our service users through the process of purchasing a new computer. Our experienced staff are able to assess what hardware and software is needed and then source it at the best possible price. We can then provide training and support to help ensure you get the most from your technology.
Our award-winning IT & Technology Service allows you to set your own goals and is completely user-led by each individual service user.
In addition to our home-based service, which continues to be in high demand, we also provide IT & Technology drop-in sessions, conveniently located in our Nottingham city centre Hub, where we offer privacy and access to large screen monitors for better accessibility. The keyboard and mouse equipment is all bluetooth enabled for added ease of use and we’ve installed the latest accessibility software for both magnification and speech.
Our Drop-in IT & Technology sessions take place on Monday and Wednesday afternoons from 1:30 until 4:00pm. Prices for a session are just £2. As space is limited, please try to call in advance to avoid disappointment and to check availability. Please call Alan on 0115 9706806.
