​​Technology User Group: 2021



The Technology User Group is a gathering of like-minded individuals with varying degrees of technological skill meeting together to explore and discuss new technologies and services. Such technologies may include emerging advancements in blindness-related apps, but they also include older applications whose functions have been altered so that they now have properties to assist in the nonvisual arena. We are especially interested in technologies that aid in education, employment, and continued access to information. Meetings are held monthly, typically on the second Saturday of the month, and are held both at LBPD and third-party locations and via teleconference. Past recordings are available in the audio archive below. 


​For more information about the Technology User Group or to recommend a topic/technology for discussion, please contact:

Jerry Price, (410) 230-2446 or via email jerry.price1@maryland.gov.​​
