Lighthouse Central Florida understands that each person has different needs, learns at a different pace and has personalized objectives to meet those needs. With this in mind, Access Technology classes are scheduled on an individual basis. Each person decides what he or she wants to learn and instruction is based on the pace set by the individual.

Access Technology training enables individuals who are blind or visually impaired to use computer technology in the home, school and workplace. Instruction is based on access software, which helps the user in Windows navigation, reading & writing e-mails, surfing the Internet and learning how to use devices such as Braille embossers.

Individuals who complete access technology are able to seamlessly and effectively perform important daily living tasks such as paying bills, shopping, maintaining bank accounts and communicating with friends and family. The skills learned from access technology training could also help individuals with sight impairment or blindness maintain a competitive edge in today’s job market.

New iDevice training is also available through Lighthouse Central Florida Access Technology classes. Applications available in some mobile devices such as the iPhone and iPad offer extraordinary accessibility for persons with visual impairments and blindness. Tasks such as identifying currency denominations, color, objects and much more are available at your fingertips and instruction on how to use these applications are now taught through Access Technology courses.
