BCAB’s annual event for 2016. Join us for a weekend of technology seminars, social fun, and a little bit of BCAB business!


TechABreak 2016 features four seminars, a hands-on technology exhibition and the RNIB Connect technology panel.

Seminar topics include the groundbreaking improvements from Microsoft in Windows 10 for desktop and mobile platforms, how to turn analogue audio into a digital form, an in-depth look at the market for braille note-taking (especially exciting given the changes in the market for this year), and wearable technology and the particular impacts it has on the blind and visually-impaired.

New to 2016, the exhibition will showcase approximately 10 companies bringing some of the products they sell with them, giving you plenty of time to get hands-on and in-depth with questions.

Check out the full TechABreak programme for more information.


TechABreak 2016 will be at the Crewe Arms hotel in Cheshire. It's a friendly hotel recommended by BCAB members, located just across the street from Crewe train station.

There will be a regular meeting point at the station for anyone who would like assistance across to the hotel on Friday afternoon.


Friday 7th to Sunday 9th October 2016.
