New Apps Available

Two new Apps are now available from the CICADA team, the first is the Rehabilitation App, intended to help new CI users practice listening to sounds at a time and place convenient to them and the second is a Finger Spelling App for general use to pick up some of the basics of Finger Spelling.

Both apps are available in the Google PlayStore for those running devices with Android O/S and the one in the AppStore for Apple phone users.

Search either store using ‘CI Rehablitation App’ or ‘CICADAFspell’ as keywords.

Gallery Oldham guided talk

We have been invited to this event on November 15th which starts at 2pm, details are on the poster from the Gallery in the events 2018 page
We have been to talks at the gallery before and helped them to get the right equipment to support our communication needs and the staff there do a lot to help the deaf community.
The last time we visited the Gallery our group met beforehand to go for lunch at Wetherspoons which is a five minute walk away from the Gallery and we are planning to do this again.
If you would like to come along please let me know (just for organisational purposes), we usually meet outside the Sainsburys supermarket in Oldham at 12 so we’ve plenty of time for lunch.
If anyone has any questions please get in touch.
