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:

Have you ever watched a movie or TV and wished you could see more? What kind of amulet is that warlock wearing? What is the make of that car? Who is she kissing! This two-hour class will give a brief overview of Audio Description, what it is and how it is created. We will examine the growing numbers of theatrical film releases, television programs and shows from streaming services like Netflix that are now providing audio description. We will review the ways you can find the described content you want to see and hear. On the way out of the library, how about checking out an audio described DVD? We have a great collection.
