Project Lead for Rehabilitation and Assistive Technology
Jamie Bruce has worked with Visibility Scotland since 2010 after graduating from Birmingham City University as a Rehabilitation Specialist in Visual Impairment.
Since then he has worked with Visibility Scotland in a number of roles and projects, ultimately in every department in the organisation.
Jamie has always specialised in accessibility and assistive technology building up Visibility Scotland’s resource centre at Queen’s Crescent where he has provided many sessions of support and advice on the latest technology available to visually impaired people and also on accessibility on mainstream devices.
In 2013 Jamie led a group of volunteers to deliver training to Visually impaired people in Scotland on digital devices. the award winning “lets get digital” project was one of the first of its kind in the country. It recognise the type of independence that an understanding of accessibility can bring to VI people.
Currently Jamie is the Project lead for Rehabilitation and Assistive Technology within Visibility Scotland. He has recently completed a six month project focussing on raising awareness on accessibility and developing the Shine On Access portal of the Visibility Scotland Website.
Aris is doing his PhD in Human Computer Interaction at the University of Glasgow. His research is on Assistive Technologies for people with Acquired Brain Injury. He is focusing on the use and design of voice-operated technologies that can facilitate the rehabilitation process of people with ABI and the communication between them and their care providers.
