Tech-Ease is part of our community and we love to get together to talk and demonstrate various inclusive products. People share personal experiences and help one another by finding answers to their questions about these products.

Join our mailing list to ask questions and share information between events.

VIRN's Tech Team and the Tech-Ease community will help find the answers to just about everything related to inclusive technology.

Sharing Information Is Empowering

VIRN has been offering the Tech-Ease program for over ten years. We pride ourselves on sharing information about tools and technology to help the community of people who are vision impaired, their family and friends have equal access to information, download audio books, music and other reading materials through public library services, use GPS for mobility and independent travel and much more. We also welcome and think it is great seeing our young community members taking time to share information to keep up with today's changes in technology.
