NUT Meeting Saturday May, 21, 2016 10:00 to 11:30 AM

Our week is finally here, the next NUT meeting will be this Saturday May 21 from 10:00 to 11:30 AM.

Hy-Vee Club Room
5330 NW 64th Street
Kansas City, MO 64151
Store: 816-505-1311

A couple of the topics we will talk about and demonstrate are grocery shopping online at Hy-Vee and using LastPass to keep track of your passwords.

Don’t let that be all we talk about. Bring your questions, ideas, and of course yourself to our next meeting.

The Northland Users Of Technology is just a group of people who get together to talk about technology as it relates to those who are blind or low vision. There are no membership dues, no officers to elect, and none of that formal stuff that prevents people from simply talking with people.
If you need assistance in getting to the Club Room at Hy-Vee, stop at Customer Service and they will be happy to help.
We do have wonderful people to get food from the kitchen area at Hy-Vee. You are welcome to enjoy the yummy food but it is not a requirement for attending our meetings.

Just a note, We are back to meeting on our regular second Saturday of the month in June.

BarCode Finder & Directions For Me

As I said in a recent NUT meeting, the free Bar Code Finder program for Windows would soon be working with Directions For Me so when you scan a Bar Code with a Bar Code scanner you would get the identification of the item along with any directions, all from one program.

To download the free Bar Code Finder program and info on buying a Bar Code scanner go to:

Here are the results of an item I scanned yesterday.
