The Carroll Store Tech Talk, Episode 6: Sports and Tech
A New Vision-Related Virtual Assistive Technology Series
Warmer weather is on the horizon and with it comes more opportunities to get outside and be active. Whether it’s swimming, running, sailing, biking, goalball, or beep baseball, there is no shortage of activities to enjoy for people who are blind or visually impaired. When it comes to these activities, technology can be a game-changer–often quite literally. Sports like goalball and beep baseball are already designed especially for people who are blind or visually impaired, whereas others like swimming and running can be easily adapted using both high and low tech options.
On Carroll Store Tech Talk, Episode 6: Sports and Tech, taking place June 4, 2021 at 2:00 P.M. EDT, we’re excited to welcome the following guests onto the program to have a conversation about how you can be active while integrating technology into recreation and sporting activities.
- Joe Walsh of Adaptive Sports New England
- Joseph Quintanilla of Boston Renegades Beep Baseball
- Chaz Davis of Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired
The Carroll Store Tech Talk series allows you to 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.
