Happy New Year …..

ChampagneWell here we are in 2013! We hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year and that our Library books carried you happily through the season.

If you are one of the lucky ones to have been given an ipad, ipod, a smart phone, a kindle, a kobo or any of the current gadgets on the market, exploring  accessiblity may be foremost on your mind.

If you have an apple device such as an iphone, ipad or ipod you can’t go past David Woodbridge for great advice. David is Vision Australia’s Senior Adaptive Technology Consultant and we have a link  to a podcast of  ‘Talking Vision’ in which he discusses using Apple devices with our Library material.

Also on the Programme, our very own Jamie Kelly. Jamie is the Library’s Online Training Officer and is a font of wisdom in matters of technology.
