Hey there!  Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
Nearly 20 years ago, David Niemeijer began developing assistive technology to help a friend with a spinal cord injury access his computer.  Shortly after, David founded AssistiveWare, a leading innovator of assistive technology software for iOS and Mac users.  The company's flagship product, Proloquo2Go, is an award-winning AAC application for iOS devices, that provides a "voice" for individuals who have trouble communicating.
