Online Today

Online Today sessions are designed to help people with sensory loss get online by offering an introduction to using smartphones and tablets. 

Technology can make life easier if you have hearing or sight problems, but knowing where to start isn't always easy – we're here to help. At this session, we can give you the information and knowledge to realise the benefits of being online, understand how it can assist your everyday living and importantly, how to stay safe online.

Delivered by a facilitator who is severely sight impaired himself the sessions are a basic introduction to smartphone and tablets and is aimed particularly at people who have never used these devices before and have little experience of using computers.  The session is approximately 2 to 3 hours long and is delivered by something who is severely sighted impaired themselves.  The facilitator will tell you how to use and make the most of the devices as well as demonstrating software that is available to help people with sight loss, particularly “talking” accessibility software. And there will also opportunities to be hands-on and try out these the devices and ask questions.

Online Today is a Big Lottery funded project delivered by the RNIB. To find out more visit the RNIB website
