Assistive technology training

AVC is on a mission to enable blind and visually impaired individuals to live more independent and socially interactive lives. Part of that goal is to help people gain the skills to use assistive technology on a daily basis, to be competent and confident in the use of that technology and to encourage its use in becoming more socially active.

Apple iOS, Mac OS and Watch OS.

AVC specialises in delivering training on VoiceOver for Apple iOS, Mac OS and Watch OS. VoiceOver is a built in screenreader found on all modern Apple devices. It gives Apple users full accessibility to all of the features of their device, whether it be iMac, Mac Mini, MacBook, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or AppleWatch, without the need to purchase additional software.

Dolphin GuideConnect and Dolphin SuperNova.

AVC also offers training to users of Dolphin GuideConnect and Dolphin SuperNova. These are software packages that can be installed on most modern Windows 10 tablets, Desktop and Laptop computers. They enable visually impaired and blind individuals to use computers by utilising magnification, colour contrast, screen reading software or in some cases, a combination of all of those features.

Training in the use of these assistive technologies can be delivered to individuals or groups and is tailored to the client’s needs. Training can be given in the comfort of the client’s own home on their own device, or if the client is a company/organisation, it can be delivered on their premises.

AVC understands that individuals may feel uncomfortable receiving strangers into their home, so offers remote training by telephone or video calling services as an alternative.
