>> Monday January 28, 10:00 AM – 12:00 noon: 
>> How do visual interpreter platforms and equipment shape, extend and constrain our skills and opportunities as blind people? How do business practices and design choices affect us, and how can we affect them? How is visual interpreter tech introduced, taught and positioned in the context of blindness training? These informal discussion sessions are designed to help us have an open, thoughtful, sales-free conversation about what visual interpreter tech means in our community. Users, developers, workers and anyone else with an interest is welcome.
