Learn about blindness technology from the best!

Technology is in a constant state of flux.  New devices, 
software,
and services are being implemented by business and education on 
what
seems like a daily basis.  Blind and low vision users need access 
to
these same technologies in order to compete with their sighted
peers.  Access technology vendors are constantly working to help
consumers meet these needs.  With the challenges come 
opportunities
for users, and the people who train and support them.  This
two-and-a-half-day seminar is designed to provide trainers and
content creators with the information they need about these 
powerful
tools to ensure that their blind and low vision users can succeed 
in
their endeavors.  To meet this goal, the training will provide
hands-on involvement with:

    * Screen access software
    * Braille
    * DAISY eBooks
    * Tactile graphics creation
    * Apple's iDevices
    * Mac computers
    * Notetakers
    * Low vision solutions
    * Other tools

Don't miss this opportunity to learn from experts in the access
technology field, experience the latest in the industry, and 
visit
the largest showcase of blindness technology in the United 
States.
