Description

Online Today helps people with sight loss to get online

“Learning how to use my tablet has changed my life” Polly Conn

Sight Service are supporting the RNIB Online Today program to reach people with sight loss who would like support to get online using the mobile technology of today.

Tablets and smartphones are transforming our everyday lives – and sight loss doesn’t have to stop you getting the best out of them.

Online Today can help in many ways, offering support across the UK. From home visits by our volunteers to locally run group sessions, training and one-to-one support. So whatever your technology experience or level of vision, you’ll soon be doing things like browsing websites and sending emails with confidence.

“This has improved my day-to-day life tremendously. I can use the calendar, contacts and reminders to name a few. I feel more organised and I’m not afraid of the IPad or IPhone anymore.”

"I feel more involved with the mainstream now; the technology I use is the same as everyone else which is brilliant.” Steve Radmore

Sight Service are hosting two events on Tuesday 23rd May and Tuesday 20th June 2017 and would like to invite anyone who would benefit from this service.

There will be 2 sessions per day, a group presentation in the morning with a light “hands-on-demonstration” and either one to one or small group sessions in the afternoon where you can gain more information or practice using the technology in more detail.

Sessions are FREE
