Technology for entertainment

I'm passing this info along to anyone who might be interested:


Thursday, May 26, 2011

The Computer Center for Visually Impaired People (CCVIP) at Baruch College Invites You to a Technology Demonstration Entitled:
For Entertainment Purposes Only

NEW Times: *1:00-3:00pm or 6:00-8:00pm

Where: Baruch College 151 East 25th Street, Room 763

What: In this session, we will be exploring devices and software that are strictly for “Entertainment Purposes”. We will focus on Apple TV, a television top box that brings access to movies, television, music and more to people who are blind or partially sighted with its built in Voiceover screen reading technology. Have you ever been frustrated at not being able to order your own pay-per-view movie on your cable system? If so, Apple TV might be the right device for you. In addition to Apple TV, we will be showcasing accessible apps and products that give us access to radio stations, NetFlix and even some gaming options.

Admission: Free

Reservations Required: Call 646-312-1420
If you are unable to join us in person, the presentation will be recorded and posted on our site for viewing at your convenience. Please visit us at:

Also mark your calendars for Thursday, July 28, 2011, when we will be offering our next Demo Center Presentation. Have you ever gone to buy a home appliance? What was that like for you—were the stores able to accommodate you? Are the appliances all that they could be, or do they just fail to meet your needs? Brad Hodges, from the American Foundation for the Blind’s Tech Center will talk to us about the adventure that is home appliance shopping.

Thank you!
