Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Jan 11, 2013

Show Notes 

Hi folks. Welcome to “Accessibility Minute”, your weekly look at Assisitive Technology—those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs.

People with dyslexia and other learning disabilities often see letters and numbers backwards, upside, or in a state of motion while reading.  That can create significant challenges in being successful at school, on the job or even in the community.  Open Dyslexic and Dyslexie are fonts or type-faces for your computer that are designed to alleviate some of these challenges.  With heavier weighted letter bottoms and uniquely slanted letters, these fonts are increasingly used to help people with dyslexia.  Check our show notes for a link to learn more.

For more information, to read our blog or to drop us a line, visit That was your accessibility minute for this week. I’m Wade Wingler with the INDATA Project at Easter Seals Crossroads, in Indiana.
