People with sight loss in Southport invited to attend free online skills session

RNIB'S Online Today project will help people with sensory loss get online... Blind and partially sighted people in Southport are invited to attend a free online basic skills session to help them get online and benefit from technology. The event is part of RNIB's Online Today scheme to get 125,000 people with sensory loss online.  The workshop is being delivered by partner organisation Action for Blind People, at Galloway's Society for the Blind, 22 Wright Street, Southport on Wednesday, 10 February and Wednesday, 24 February 2016, from 2.30pm to 4.30pm on both days. Anyone with sight and/or hearing loss is welcome to attend on one of the days. The session will include how to get the most from products such as tablets, smartphones and eReaders. There will also be the chance to be hands on and try out these gadgets and ask questions. Internet use in the UK has significantly increased over recent years with 76% of adults accessing the internet every day in 2014, compared to just 38% in 2006. Millions of us rely on the internet for everyday tasks such as shopping, banking and staying in touch with friends and family. However, getting online and using technology can present many challenges for someone who is blind, partially sighted or has hearing loss.

Andrew Coleman, Assistive Technology Coordinator at Action for Blind People, said:- "Being online can make a huge difference to someone's life. We hope people with sight or hearing loss in Southport will come along and find out how technology can open up a whole new world of discovery and independence."
