Tech Related Teleconferences

Wondering how to join a Blind Vet Tech or partnering teleconference? Below is a list of the teleconferences we either host or endorse. We feel peer support is one of the greatest methods one learns to contend and overcome a disability. Blindness may reduce our ability to travel, but teleconferences and other forms of digital communications resolve these issues.

If you know of any other helpful teleconferences for Veterans with visual impairments, send us a message, and we will add it to the list.
