If you have ever wanted to access live emergency alerts for your location but could not because of your vision and hearing loss, then this webinar is for you!

Next Friday, July 24, we will be conducting a webinar about the GoCC4All app. GoCC4All helps you receive emergency alerts in an accessible way, and shares your location with a contact in case of an emergency. During the webinar, you will learn how to use these services and, additionally, you will learn how easy it is to access television via captions, VoiceOver and braille using the app.

The webinar is hosted by the Florida Virgin Islands Deaf-Blind Collaborative. It will have captions and interpretation in ASL. It will be presented in English at 1 p.m. ET and in Spanish at 2 p.m. ET.

After the webinar, we will post a recording of it on our YouTube channel. We hope we will see you there!
