BBS New ” Active at Home” Virtual Program!

British Blind Sport adapts virtual delivery programme

British Blind Sport New ” Active at Home” Virtual Program!

As restrictions begin to differ vastly across the UK, British Blind Sport have decided to change their Workout Wednesday programme to something with more flexibility and permanence.

Rather than have one workout per week, BBS will now run a live workout week at the beginning of each month with a different inclusive class each night from Monday to Friday at 6 pm.

The timetable for the first live week of the Active At Home Programme is as follows;

For more information, please contact BBS Participation Officer, David, on david@britishblindsport.org.uk or phone 01926 424247

Following these live workouts, BBS will release “follow up” exercise sessions for each different class so that participants can improve and build on their performance throughout the month – until the next live workout week.

BBS think this new programme will provide more structure to the online workout series, with the pre-recorded follow on sessions allowing participants to take part whenever they have time and motivating them to progress in their chosen classes.

One participant said, “I’m finding these workouts fantastic!  Currently, self-isolating and can’t get out to walk or run. These workouts are keeping me sane!”

Another said, “It’s nice to do exercise alongside other people (even virtually!) and have very motivating instructors who speak to the participants and correct our positions. It’s a great idea!”

Creating and delivering presentations using JAWS

Creating and delivering presentations using JAWS with Darren Paskell from TPT!

Creating and delivering presentations using JAWS

In this video, Darren Paskell, Thomas Pocklington Trust Technology Information Champion, demonstrates how he creates and delivers presentations using screen reading software JAWS.

Accessible technology in the workplace has come a long way over the last few years allowing blind and partially sighted employees to perform roles as well as their fully sighted counterparts.

In this, the second of five videos for TPT’s campaign #BlindAndAble, our own Technology Information Champion, Darren Paskell demonstrates how he creates and delivers presentations using screen reading software JAWS.

This series of videos is part of Blindness Awareness Month 2020.

Thanks to Nathan Churchill of Higher Aspect Media who filmed and produced these videos. For more information and examples of Nathan’s work please visit https://higheraspectmedia.com
