Accessible App Demo and Discussion

October 27th is the quarterly adaptive technology training session on accessible apps for mobile devices using a screenreader, including Apple’s iOs operating system and Google’s Andriod operating system. The session will be hosted by Mark Reumann of the US Patent Office, demoing the latest iOs accessibility features, and Zuhair Mahmoud of the Library of Congress, who will introduce the community to Android Accessibility. John Herzog will also participate demonstrating the Narrator screenreader on Windows 8.

If you are interested in hands-on training in the basics of the accessibility features of iOs and Andriod, please come to our Tech Talk Tuesday iPad training event on the first Tuesday evening of each month, from 6:30PM to 8:30PM in room 215, Adaptive Services. After this October 27th session, we should have a tipsheet on the basics of Android accessibility.

Saturday Technology Training Sessions (STTS) are held on the first and third Saturdays of each month in room 215, Adaptive Services Division of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, and focus on the topic of adaptive technology as it relates to employment for people with disabilities. The library is located at 901 G Street, NW Washington DC 20001, diagonally across the street from the 9th street exit of the Gallery Place Chinatown Metro stop, or two blocks from the 11th and G exit of Metro Center. There is no public parking at the MLK Library.

The Adaptive Technology Program provides adaptive technology workstations for library customers who need them. The workstations are located in the Adaptive Services Division, Room 215 at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library. Customers can call ahead and reserve two-hour sessions at either the computer workstations or at the CCTVs. Introductory training on Adaptive Technologies is available through orientation sessions and regular weekly meetings with Volunteer Trainers.
