People cut off from modern technology by their poor sight can have their eyes opened to the uses of computers.

The Visually Impaired Club, which meets at Maxwell Park Community Centre, is hosting a workshop to demonstrate the software available to help the blind and partially sighted use computers.

Assistive technology specialist Martin Slyper, who runs Borehamwood business Adapt-IT, will talk about and demonstrate some of the computer aids his business sells.

The Mayor of Elstree and Borehamwood is expected to attend the event, which starts at 2pm on Friday, February 21.

The club’s president David Clout said: “We realise there are far more visually impaired people in the community than attend the VIC on Friday afternoons. However, for this event we welcome other blind or partially sighted people and their relatives, friends or neighbours.”
