The Lighthouse of the Big Bend is sponsoring its 5th annual Techno Demo on
April 24 from 2:00-6:00pm and April 25 from 9:00am -2:00pm at our office at
3071 Highland Oaks Terrace, in Tallahassee.
The Lighthouse hosts this event every Spring so people who are blind or
visually impaired can come to our facility to check out devices and
equipment that are often only for sale online. Vendors and businesses from
around Florida set up displays of assistive technology at the Lighthouse for
folks to try, hands on, to see what types of technology might work for them.
We will again have numerous vendors showing off all the latest technology
and demonstrating how it makes so many daily tasks accessible and do-able
for persons who are visually impaired or blind, with the use of large print
formats and/or speech and/or braille. We will also have display tables for
local agencies and accessible voting machines. Besides adaptive computer
programs, desk top and portable digital magnifiers, and numerous other
adaptive devices, we plan to show i-devices and the different accessibility
features. This event is free and open to anyone interested in learning about
adaptive technology and resources for persons who are visually impaired or
