Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Apr 12, 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.

Siri is a service built in to many apple products.  It allows users with or without disabilities to simply press a button and issue a command or dictate an email or text message.   For individuals with mobility challenges it may provide an easier option than typing on a touchscreen keyboard.  Individuals who are blind or visually impaired may find it faster than typing long messages.  Many learning disabilities can be accommodated by dictating with Siri rather than spelling words individually. If you have an iPad or iPhone you may already have access to this important accessibility tool.  Check our show notes for a link to learn more.
