City of Seattle Awards Sight Connection Technology Grant

Sight Connection is partnering with Sound Generations to provide accessibility training to seniors.

The design features in smart phones and tablets can greatly enhance the independence of those living with vision loss. Screen magnification, screen readers, and voice control of common tasks such as sending an email, placing a phone call, and searching the internet are all built in to these new devices. Seniors, and those hesitant to learn new technologies often miss out on these latest advances. Beginning in 2017, our accessibility trainings will teach seniors how to use their devices to complete common tasks and increase their comfort level with new technologies. More information on how to sign up will be available in early 2017.
