Blind Vet Tech Monthly Talks

The Blind Vet Tech Monthly Talks features in-depth discussions and reviews on a wide variety of assistive technologies. Each series contains their own focus, though we conclude each call with an open forum, enabling participants to converse about anything from other technology questions to everyday life. Our Blind Vet Tech Monthly Talks consist of:

  • Blind Vet Tech Monthly Tech Talk
  • Blind Vet Tech Monthly MacOS Talk
  • Blind Vet Tech Monthly Narrator Talk (coming soon)
