Léonie Watson on BBC Radio 4’s In Touch08th February 2011
- When: Tuesday 2nd February, 8.40pm.
- Where: BBC Radio 4, or via the In Touch website.
Nomensa's Director of Accessibility, Léonie Watson, joins the In Touch team to talk about web accessibility.
Radio 4's In Touch programme is a weekly radio show that reports on issues relevant to blind and partially sighted people. On tonight's programme Léonie will be joining host Peter White and BCAB President Mike Townsend. The show will feature as part of the “Blindness for beginners” series, with this one focussing on computers and technology.
The panel will be responding to enquiries from listeners who want to know more about taking their first steps with computers and technologies. They will also be talking about the support, training and advice available to the blind and partially sighted who want to get more out of computers and technology or are hoping to get online.
Providing the blind and partially sighted with more information about computers and technology is something I am extremely passionate about. I hope that my experiences and advice will help listeners to get more out of technologies and the Internet and give them more confidence in doing so.
Léonie's appearance on the In Touch show is now available on BBC iPlayer.
