For those in the Toronto area, Come learn, explore and share tips on all things Apple at the first Toronto iPhone user group meeting.
When? Thursday September 15 at 6:30 Pm.

Whether you already have an iDevice, or are thinking of getting one, this forum will provide you helpful information on the products, and you can see them in action and get hands on practice. Together, we'll share tips and guidance on useful apps for those with vision loss and answer questions such as,
How do I navigate a touch screen and find what I'm looking for?
How do I download apps?
Do I need to use iTunes?
What else can I do with my device?
The forum will be lead by
Martin Courcells, Accessibility trainer and product tester, CNIB
Tom Dekker, independent living skills and assistive technology trainer at balance,
Debbie Gillespie, Accessibility consultant at CNIB.
Future sessions will cover such topics as:
- Organizing home screens and deleting apps you no longer
- what to expect when you first get an iPhone
- Exploring settings that maximize efficiency for those with vision loss,
- Where to get help and other useful resources,
- Using your iPhone as a GPS,
- Listening to music and podcasts,
- Connecting a Bluetooth keyboard and braille displays.
We look forward to meeting you, and be sure to bring your questions, and topic suggestions for future sessions with you. If we don't know the answer to your question at this meeting, we'll have it ready for the next one. The group is scheduled to meet the third Thursday of each month, same time, same place. See you in September.
