The past twelve months have really highlighted the capability pf technology with increased usage of video calls, online delivery and content streaming, which a lot of the population have taken into their stride. However, there are a lot of people who do not have the hardware or the know-how to be able to access the information and services that connectivity can bring.
According to the NHS, 4.8 million people never go online at all and people with a disability are 35% less likely to have essential digital skills for life.
At OAB we are aware that this is the case with some of our clients and we want to make a difference. There are plenty of ways that you can begin accessing technology that don’t involve a lot of investment or knowledge, just some time and a positive attitude.
We can help with:
– Equipment (Tablets, smartphones, smart speakers, computers)
– Accessibility (Contrast, magnification, voice assistants, screen readers)
– Apps and functions (Email, Office, Video calling)
– VI specific software (VoiceOver, TalkBack, Dolphin Guide and Supernova, Zoomtext, Narrator)
– Recommending other services like RNIB and AbilityNet.
We can offer phone and online sessions and hope to resume in person training as soon as we can.
