Technology is increasingly an imperative for people with sight loss, not a nice to have or an optional extra. As part of a strategic partnership across the sight loss sector, sight loss charities have created a joint briefing to illustrate the need to do more.
A presentation on Friday 26 November, as part of the Visionary Annual Conference, of the Joint Sector briefing on Sight Loss and Technology, will include the relevant response areas. This will be followed by discussion relating to the response and how sight loss sector can work together to address challenges outlined by the briefing.
The briefing outlines of the role of technology and digital, current levels of take up, and the digital divide faced by blind and partially sighted people. This briefing has been produced and published on behalf of the sector working group on technology. It brings together existing evidence on the role and uptake of technology and digital by blind and partially sighted people.
Delegates can confirm attendance at this session during conference registration.
