Upcoming events

  • Millions now rely on the internet for everyday tasks such as shopping, banking, and staying in touch with friends and family. However, getting online and using new technology can present many challenges for someone who is blind or partially sighted. RNIB Scotland is working with East Renfrewshire Libraries to offer people across East Renfrewshire the chance to learn how to get online using the accessibility features that are built in to tablet computers and smartphones.

    These features, which come built in to Apple and android devices, mean that you don't need to learn how to touch type or learn any special keyboard shortcuts in order to access the internet. You can get started on a standard device straight out of the box. All you need is a little knowledge and the motivation to learn. That's our aim - to supply the knowledge and help you to find out what the devices can do for you.

     

    Online Today is a three year project, funded by the big lottery and delivered in partnership with local organisations and initiatives. We offer drop-ins, demonstrations and one to one sessions. If you'd like to learn more about Online Today then you can contact us direct on onlinetodayscotland@rnib.org.uk, phone 0131 657 8204 or attend our weekly drop-in session at Busby Library every Friday until 1st September. Drop in any time between 2pm and 5pm.
