In this webinar we’ll demonstrate a wide variety of tools and adaptations that seniors living with vision loss can use in order to remain active, engaged, and in charge of their own lives. You’ll learn to help seniors living with low vision to use contrast, glare reduction, magnification, and better lighting. We’ll also explore ways to incorporate tactile and audio feedback and new ways to do common everyday tasks. Finally, we’ll show how smartphones and other tech are exponentially expanding possibilities for seniors with vision loss – even for the most reluctant tech users.
