The world is changing pretty fast. The use of computers, smartphones, tablets and devices is increasing and developers are very busy delivering technologies that support people living with sightloss and other disabilities. TechTalk keeps people up to date on new technology and makes them better equipped to make informed choices on the technology they adopt. The group meet once a month, some physically and some virtually (Skype / FaceTime) and some just receive the minutes of the meeting and exchange emails once in a while. The group members are made up of 'geeks', 'novices' and 'not got a clue', which is a perfect combination to ensure a good measure of peer to peer support and learning.
