Saturday Technology Training Sessions

Saturday Technology Training Sessions are an opportunity for members of the Adaptive Technology user community to get together and share information in an open environment.  Adaptive Technologies are broadly defined to include assistive software, hardware and systems (like screen readers, speech-to-text and video-relay-services that help people with disabilities get access to the library's programs and services), but also any procedure for success, like a job search strategy or any methodical approach to achieving a goal that is important to participants.

Some examples of demonstrations and presentations from past sessions have included iPhone and iPad accessibility, captioned telephone, Deaf-Blind communications and technology, job search strategies, meditation, and laughter yoga.

The meetings take place on the third Saturday of each month with a few exceptions for holidays. They are held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Adaptive Services Department, DC Public Library, Room 215, Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, 901 G St. NW Washington, DC 20001.  We are located between Gallery Place Chinatown and Metro Center on the Red Line. There is no public parking at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library.
