UATP Webinar: iPhone apps for the Blind and Visually Impaired

The Utah Assistive Technology Program (UATP) will present a FREE online interactive training, “iPhone apps for the blind and visually impaired,” on Wednesday, Dec. 10, 2014 from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. MST.

Dancing iPhones.

The iPhone is more than a text machine! It is a great accessible tool for those with vision impairment. Everette Bacon will demonstrate many applications specifically designed for those who are blind or have low vision on the iPhone. These apps can help with independence in everyday tasks and also can assist with school or vocation.

Everette Bacon is the Field Services Coordinator and is over both Technology and Employment Services for the Division of Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired. He began as an Assistive Technology Specialist in 2006. He is also the Affiliate President for the National Federation of the Blind of Utah. Jerry Nealey will assist Everette, and is a Field Instructor for DSBVI.
