Baruch College CCVIP to Address Online Dating and Visual Impairment

In its latest seminar for people with visual impairment, the Baruch College Computer Center for Visually Impaired People (CCVIP) will host a workshop focusing on whether online dating is disability-friendly and accessible for people who are blind. In the workshop, called “Love is Blind . . . And So Am I,” experts will look at popular online dating sites and companion apps, and discuss whether online dating has “leveled the playing field” for people with disabilities.

For those who cannot attend the presentation at Baruch College, the workshop will be recorded and available on the college’s website.

The CCVIP was founded in 1978 with the mission to help people with visual impairment learn how to use adaptive technology. Along with webinars and workshops on relevant cultural issues that affect people with visual impairment, the center offers computer training, individualized instruction, and assistive technology demonstrations. It also provides numerous online learning opportunities.

Craig Wolfson, associate partner with Rosicki, Rosicki & Associates, P.C., is a board member of the Baruch College CCVIP.
