In the last couple years, navigation technologies such as Google Maps and Apple Maps have added new features that make it even more accessible to get around. There are also new companies that prioritize accessibility such as GoodMaps and WeWALK. We will take a look at the alternatives to help you get you where you're going. This CNIB Mobile Hub program meets in-person at the Stoney Creek Lions Club on Tuesday, March 1 from 12 to 1 p.m. Eastern Time.

Be My Eyes is a free app that connects people who are blind or low vision with sighted volunteers and company representatives for visual assistance through a live video call. Volunteers can assist you with: reading recipes, identifying expiry dates on groceries, telling you information on products, and so much more in many different languages. Join us for a demonstration of the app. This CNIB Mobile Hub program meets in-person at the Stoney Creek Lions Club on Tuesday, March 1 from 1 to 2 p.m. Eastern Time.
