DnA have been very excited to be working closely with Crisis
over the last few months; delivering a series of group workshops and 1 to 1 sessions designed to help homeless service users develop computer and literacy skills, all using free/ open-source tools. Our wonderful trainers Michael
have been familiarising trainees with cloud based word processing using google documents, alongside free plugins to support dictation (speech-to-text), and proofreading, (text-to-speech). They’ve also been helping trainees to access similar tools that they may not have known were already built into their phones. The feedback has been really positive, (our personal favourite - "A great eye-opener to build personal potential and confidence
"), and with the help and guidance of the trainees, we’re already working on the next series of workshops!
