Free Web Training: Accessibility options for Mac, Windows and other computers

April 6, 2011
3:00 – 4:30 p.m.
RSVP by April 4 to OR (435)797-7412.
This FREE training is intended to allow people to learn about the tools they already have, but may not know about.  It is a review of the accessibility options within your computer.  We will review the different features of Windows 7, Mac OS X, as well as older PC operating systems.  The Computer Center is a Microsoft Accessibility Resource Center and has an emphasis on keeping costs down wherever possible.  Looking at the tools that a user already has on hand can be important for individuals seeking to quickly and effectively access technology.

Scott Baggley has been working as an Education Program Specialist at the Computer Center for Citizens with Disabilities at the Utah Center for Assistive Technology for the past 8 years. He specializes in Computer Access, Augmentative Communication, and Educational Software.
