The Computer Center for Visually Impaired People (CCVIP) at

Baruch College Invites You to a

Technology Demonstration featuring

Make Life a Little Easier with Some Low Tech Solutions

Time: 2:00-4:00pm and 7:00-9:00pm

Where: Baruch College 55 Lexington Ave. Room 14-270

One entrance is on the south east side of 25th Street between 3rd and Lex Ave. in the middle of the block. It’s directly across the street from CCVIP's classroom building. The 2nd entrance is on the north east corner of 24th Street and Lexington Ave. This entrance has stairs. There is a ramp at the far end of the stairs on 24th street.

What: Join us as we launch the second year of the Technology Demo Center. Come with us, back to a simpler time, when not everything we touched required a degree in computer electronics. In this session, we will look at some of the lower tech solutions that visually impaired people can use to make life just a little bit easier. Our presentation will be led by a vision rehabilitation professional demonstrating some of the products and devices recommended for people dealing with vision loss.

Also mark your calendars for Thursday, November 18, 2010. In this session we will look at the latest in note taking devices. How do these devices work? What do these devices do? How much do they cost? How will they impact the way I work or study?
