Worcester Talking Book Library’s Winter/Spring 2016 Series of Free Adaptive Technology Training Workshops

Worcester Public Library is happy to announce that the next session of the Worcester Talking Book Library’s Winter/Spring 2016 series of free adaptive technology training workshops will take place on Saturday, March 12, from 1:30 to 3:30 PM in the 3rd Floor Computer Lab of the Main Branch.

This session will be a continuation of the last session on headings and styles in Word. The styles menu is a potentially powerful tool for formatting and navigating through Word documents. Hands-on exercises, inserting headings and other format-related elements via the styles menu, as well as related topics such as creating a table of contents and inserting page numbers in longer documents, will be covered.  Also on the agenda is the quick access toolbar, a valuable tool for defining shortcut keys for frequently-used Microsoft Office commands.

Topics for future sessions will be based on popular demand of participants. Dates and times for the remaining spring sessions are as follows.

·       Saturday April 9 - 1:30 to 3:30 pm
·       Saturday May 14 - 9:45 to 11:45 am

The only prerequisite for participation is a minimum typing skill level of approximately 20 words per minute. Please remember to bring a pair of personal headphones so you can work on one of the lab computers.

Reminders and registration requests for subsequent workshops will be sent out shortly before each of those workshops.

To register for the March 12 workshop, as well as to seek any additional information, please contact Jim Izatt or call the Worcester Talking Book Library at 1-800-762-0085 or 1-508-799-1730.
