Beyond Siri: iOS or Android Apps for Students with Visual Impairments - 013488
There are many apps that students who are blind or visually impaired can use to access the Internet, read a book, find a bus route or order a ride-sharing service, and many other things. These apps are accessible and often quicker and more effective than just asking Siri. Come join Andrew Bernet and Shawn Keene from Lighthouse for the Blind in Fort Worth to learn about these great apps and how to teach students to use them!
