Have you heard that braille is becoming obsolete due to accessible technology? We are here to tell you that it is just not true! Research shows that adults with visual impairments who are braille readers are more employable and successful.

Maybe your vision isn’t as good as it used to be. Maybe you now have very little usable vision or as some may say, “just enough vision to get you in trouble.” If so, braille will be your buddy in every aspect of life and technology will add an additional tool to help you live a fuller life.

Join Seminars@Hadley as our panelists discuss how technology and braille work together for a winning combination for life! Special guests Kathy Claus, professional storyteller and author; Kristen Witucki, the curriculum and content editor for Learning Ally’s College Success Program and Susan Kennedy, a legal assistant and travel blogger, will share how they balance braille and technology in their everyday lives. This 60-minute seminar is audio only and will be moderated by Hadley instructor Kim Walker. A question and answer session will be included as part of the seminar
