  • Are you finding it increasingly difficult to read print newspapers and magazines, or articles online from your smart tablet, phone or computer as a result of reduced vision, eye fatigue, or blindness?

  • Are all those website controls and advertisements keeping you from enjoying news articles online?

  • Is the text too small, or contrast not sharp enough for reading long news articles when accessing them online from your smart tablet, smart phone or computer?

  • Would you like to have your favourite news articles read aloud to you from your smart tablet, phone or computer?

If you’ve answered yest to any of the above questions we have the workshop just for you!

On Tuesday, November 19th the staff and volunteers at the Technology Learning Centre, along with Albert Ruel from the Canadian Council of the Blind will show you how to resolve all the above issues so that reading/listening will become effortless and enjoyable again.

The features, strategies and techniques we will demonstrate and teach are referred to as Reader View/Simplified View, and they’re already built into the web browsers you know and love. Those web browsers are, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge and Safari.

Bring your smart tablet, smart phone or computer to the workshop and someone will assist you in learning how best to configure the device for easy reading, and how to bring out the power of Reader View built into the browsers you have on your device.

Space is limited so please RSVP your intentions, and let us know which device you will bring, or want to learn about.
