Technology Club

Our apple devices club is returning Friday, July 17th, as a more general Technology Club.

For next week’s Tech Club meeting we will encourage attendees to participate in the following NFB Convention session:

Zoom meeting ID: 949 9591 5689
In this forty-five-minute presentation and fifteen-minute Q&A session, members of the LCI Tech team discuss why we use blind accessibility testers and why LCI thinks this should be an industry best practice.
