While Braille Institute centers offer a reopening plan due to COVID-19, we also bring “online” classes and services to you within the comfort and safety of your home. You can participate in a “live” session with a Braille Institute instructor or consultant by video or phone call. Like all of our programs and services, these are free of charge.

We are using the “Microsoft Teams” (TEAMS) platform for our online classes. You can participate using your computer, mobile device or traditional phone. Learn more about how to use TEAMS by reading the FAQs and watching step-by-step instructional videos.

2 types of remote service offerings:

  • Online Workshops and Classes – 1–1.5 hour sessions taught by instructors on a range of subjects such as Make Technology Work for You, Accessing Free Audio Books, Understanding Vision Loss and more. Enjoy live class sessions with an instructor and other students. To view a listing of available classes and workshops:

How Does It Work

Braille Institute instructors will provide participants with an online link or phone number that will be used to participate in a “live” session. Students will be able to talk with the instructor and other participating students.

Braille Institute uses the “Microsoft Teams” (TEAMS) platform to deliver online classes and services.
