About eCarroll Remote Technology Instruction

eCarroll Remote Technology Instruction brings technology training directly to blind and visually impaired individuals in the comfort of any location, whether it be in the home, workplace, or school setting. We use Zoom Meeting, an easy-to-use and accessible video and web conferencing software accessed by a link in an email, to offer individualized instruction in a wide range of areas. All remote trainees will need a computer with Windows 10 and a built-in microphone, internet access, recent versions of JAWS (JAWS 18 and newer) or NVDA and Microsoft 2016 or Office 365 for those topics. Users should have at least beginner-level JAWS skills. If you do not already have a Zoom account, instructors will help you create an account and install the program on your computer. During the ongoing pandemic, our technology training staff has gained significant experience in conducting remote training. One of our staff members, Heather Thomas, has even recently written a book on the topic, entitled “Getting Started with Zoom Meetings: A Guide for JAWS, NVDA, and iPhone VoiceOver Users.
