The Carroll Store Tech Talk, Episode 3: Cane and Guide Dog Travel

A New Vision-Related Virtual Assistive Technology Series

There are several guidance aids for people with vision loss, but solid orientation and mobility skills are the foundation for traveling safely and independently. The two most common guidance aids are white canes and guide dogs. If you are thinking about your options or are just curious why some people choose one method over another, come join us to discover the nuances of cane and guide dog travel.

On March 5, 2021 at 2:00 P.M. EST, we will have several guests on the third episode of Carroll Store Tech Talk: Cane and Guide Dog Travel including Zack Gittlen, Manager of Marketing and Outreach at Guide Dogs of America, Madeleine Babcock, guide dog user, and Jill Suarez, Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist (COMS) at The Carroll Center for the Blind.

The Carroll Store Tech Talk series allows you can discover all sorts of high- and low-tech gadgets and devices that can help you maximize your independence. This series is perfect for people who want to learn about the latest blindness and low vision products; from specialized equipment to off-the-shelf solutions. Each month we’ll be featuring either a product demonstration from guests or an informational presentation from our own team of vision experts.
