The National Federation of the Blind Access Technology team made its presence known this year at the CSUN Technology and Persons with Disabilities Conference. As in years past, we presented on topics of interest to blind technology users. Below, you can download the slides from the presentation on Phones for Low Vision and Blind Seniors by Clara Van Gerven and Amy Mason.

These slides represent only the most basic overview of the original presentation. As such, they may raise a few more questions than they answer for those who are looking to choose a device. If this happens, we invite you to contact us directly through the Access Technology answer line, where we will be happy to discuss the various options in more detail. You can reach us either through, or by calling (410) 659-9314 Option 5. (Please note the phone number is a voicemail box, and we will work to return your message within three business days.)
