Forbes Library is offering a series of free classes on assistive technology and related topics on the second Friday of each month from 1-2:30PM. Assistive technology helps people with challenges like low vision, hearing loss, or fine motor problems. All classes will take place in the library’s Community Room and will be taught by Rick Ely. The classes will provide demonstrations and time for question and answers. Participants will have the opportunity to sign up for one on one or small group tutoring for hands-on instruction related to the topics covered in each class.

About the class:

Is your vision making reading increasingly difficult? Do you find it a challenge to hold a book for a long time or to turn pages? If so, there are many tools to make reading easier. Many of them are absolutely FREE! This first workshop will offer paths to independent reading when vision loss or other physical challenges make this difficult. The two-hour workshop will introduce you to accessible resources for books and magazines and we will review the many tools that make reading accessible again. Come and explore new territories for reading.
