Sight and Sound are hosting a webinar for us specifically tailored towards KC. The webinar takes 6 or 7 cases covering people at different stages of their lives – children, teens, students at university, young people in work and those at a later stage in their lives. They will look at how the condition manifests itself and map the impacts into various scenarios and look at how the technology can support those with the condition. The webinar has a mix of real time demonstrations and presentations showing the technology in use.
The topic “If only I’d known….”, has been chosen because it is what people always say. Technology is developing so fast we simply do not know what is out there. You can now get what looks like a small pen and clip it to your glasses. It contains a camera linked to your smart phone by Bluetooth. It will read a menu just by running your finger over its surface and when you go outside it will read the shop signs. If you walk into a room it will tell you if someone is there either sitting or standing and even their name if you have seen them before. Someone the other side of the world will be able to see what is in front of you and direct you down the street.
This is a fabulous opportunity to see what is available.
The Webinar will take place on Tuesday 9th March, 2021 at 18:30
