"Having the voice on my computer changed my life. I could study again."
Adaptive technology training opens up new pathways to employment, independent living and further education.
One of the main barriers faced by people who are blind or have low vision is having easy access to print and computer based information.
There are now many solutions to minimise these barriers from mainstream products with built-in accessibility features through to specialised adaptive technologies such as computer based magnification and screen reader systems.
If you are unsure of the type of equipment that is needed we would recommend an appointment with our Adaptive Technology Consultancy Service. If you already have access to the right equipment and want advice on training options, Vision Australia Adaptive Technology Training Service may be able to assist.
What's on offer?
Vision Australia offers a range of computer training programs to assist people who are blind or have low vision to have greater access to print and computer based information.
Using the latest adaptive technology and teaching techniques, clients are equipped with the knowledge and skills that help them open up new pathways to employment, independent living and further education.
Whether it is the desire to get on the internet, read or write letters or assignments, keep a record of phone numbers, addresses, appointments, financial records or recipes, Vision Australia has the answer.
Flexible learning options are often available, including group courses, self-paced courses, and distance learning. Materials for all courses are available in a range of formats, including large print, audio, braille and electronic.
