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!
A common tool in the world of assistive technology
is the Livescribe pen, a pen that allows you to take notes in the
designated notebook, and then automatically uploads it to your
devices. Now there is a newer, electronic pen coined, the
"Phree" pen (spelled with a P-H) that allows you to take notes
According to its website, Phree is the "world's first
unrestricted, high-resolution, write-virtually-anywhere mobile
input device." Now you can write, draw, annotate, and express
yourself in many ways on virtually ANY surface. Phree
will easily connect to all of your Bluetooth devices (phone,
tablet, laptop, TV, etc.) It's compatible with software
and apps like Office, EverNote, Acrobat, Google Handwriting
Keyboard, and more.
