CBVI Offering Free LEAP Classes

The NJ Commission for the Blind is offering free classes at 9 NJ public libraries on iPads & computers that magnify & speak thanks to accessible technology. The program is called the Library Equal Access Program (LEAP) & is for anyone 55 & older with a change of vision (you do not need to be legally blind or blind). Purpose of LEAP is to introduce people to new technology as vision changes with aging. LEAP instructs on the accessibility features built into iPads and magnification & speech software on accessible computers. For example, the iPad has a magnificent magnifier built into it! Read with ease your prescriptions, menus, bills, etc. Each LEAP library also has a magnifying machine for the public. Spread the word about this FREE training!

To register, call Advancing Opportunities at 888-322-1918, ext 501.
