The idea of this is an informal session that helps people explore making the most of the internet .A weekly gathering of like minded souls!
These sessions are not formal classes – they are organised on a drop in basis so you can come along for all of the session or just the part you want.
When: Tuesdays 11.00 – 13.00
Where : IT Suite NSBP , MEA House
Things we are looking at the moment
Parking on pavements and A Boards - if you see A boards on Newcastle streets take a picture if you can and put it up on our Facebook page. We also want to ask people to report when rotating cones aren't working.
Broken pavements causing a hazard for VI people - we need to have your experiences so we can tell the Council
Cyclists being considerate to visually impaired people - and reporting cyclists when they have not been considerate
Longer crossing times at pedestrian crossings for people who are less mobile
Unofficial Facebook pages that can look like the official pages of celebrities and this can confuse VI people eg they might try to friend you
Accessibility of local websites and how they can be more visually impaired friendly
The sessions are run by Bill Norman If you want to know more please contact Bill Norman on 2327292 or e mail firstname.lastname@example.org
