Even for digital products and services, there is still always some kind of physical interaction. Whether it's by keyboard, touchscreen, voice, or something else, people choose a way to interact that works for them in their unique situation.

The Community Vision Assistive Technology (AT) Lab is a collaborative education and resource center that is open to the public. The Lab demonstrates a wide variety of AT, from Braille readers and browser extensions to voice-controlled lights and adaptive video game controllers. Community Vision will be hosting us for the night to learn about these tools and explore them firsthand.

5:30pm: Arrive and network
5:45pm: Introduction and guided tour
6:00pm: Open exploration of the lab, with AT Lab staff available for questions
6:30pm: Post-event socializing at a nearby location (TBA)
