Hi Hazel

My understanding is that as part of the lottery on line today grant, RNIB
are recruiting volunteers to help V I people learn how to use their
computers, smart phones etc in their own homes.
best wishes
Henry

Jackie all I wanted was to try an I phone to see if I would get on with 
one but I was told I would have to buy any device from them to get the 
training.

As far as I know, RNIB is offering help to anyone regardless of what
device
they have, as part of their £5m Online Today funding from the Big Lottery.
If this is not the case, or there is another scheme running that differs
from my information, then I am sure someone will put us right.

Kind Regards,

yes but that's crazy, because the person told me that it didn't matter
what
type of device so for instance an iPhone or an android phone.

Last year when I asked about this service I was told I could only have
the
training if I had bought the device from R N I B that stank to me and i
told
them just that.

the
persons home and carries out this training free of charge. when I asked
about funding for this he said funding came through the lottery fund. I am
very surprised that this was the first I had ever heard of such training.
I
am wondering if there are also trainers who are volunteers and teaching
voice over the mat.
