A two day CONFERENCE ON ACCESS TECHNOLOGY kicked off yesterday at the University of South Africa in Pretoria.

The primary theme for this event is Enhancing independence and empowerment through access technology obviously in a South African context.

I attended the event and will attend as well for the remainder.

I did not have the optimum access to record but, I did my best under the circumstances. Please find what I have managed to capture below and enjoy.

There were some company presentations as well however, I will only have time later today to add those.

Actual presentations will be made available in due course in text format. This means that this page will be updated until all material relating to the event has been captured.
