Joyce and I are planning to give a presentation about our division on a voice chat website for the blind and visually impaired. All of you are invited to come in and listen and participate if you would like to do so.
In order to participate you will need to register with the games galore and more website, download a chat client and have a microphone. Information about when and where as well as how to join the chat site and participate in the event is described below.
Joyce and I hope to see some of you there.
You are invited to join Cathy and Joyce on Saturday, October 17th, at 2:00 PM eastern in the All about Learning room for an afternoon of crafting.
Are you blind or visually impaired and a lover of craft making? Would you like to share your love of crafting with other like-minded people? Would you be interested in learning a new craft taught by and geared specifically for blind folks? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then join us on Games Galore and More to learn what the NFB Crafter’s Division has to offer you. We will give you details about the classes we offer, our email list, and much more. We will even provide a free sample class on how to crochet during the program.
Hope to see you there.

Once you have received your welcome email, you can enter the chat rooms at the link indicated in your welcome email. You will need a microphone and speakers, or a microphone headset to interact with individuals in the chat rooms. The GGM community is a voice chat community.
The first time you login, if you are not a member of any Talking Communities chat site, you will need to download and install the chat client by entering on the link: “First Time users click here to download the Windows plugin.” You must run the TC chat client, and it will install to your computer. When the installation is finished, you can enter any chat room and participate.

There you will find a section on accessing the GGM site with a Mac and iDevice. Please note, that while it is possible to access all Talking Communities with Apple products, there are some issues, and the GGM support team does state that using a Windows based machine will provide you with a better user experience.
