Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Jun 1, 2020

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!

Do you have a fear of public speaking?  There's an app to help with that!  Introducing the Present Pal app!  Present Pal is a presentation app to help you conquer your public speaking fears.

According to the app's website, Present Pal is a "presentation support software that acts as a set of interactive flashcards on your mobile device."  The app integrates fully with Microsoft's PowerPoint through the new add-in feature.

Other features include:

  • 3-5 bullet points per flashcard
  • Line focus scrolling and safety nets which have been tailored for the needs of individuals with special needs
  • Users can also personalize the app to suit their individual needs by choosing from scientifically proven color overlays and accessible fonts to reduce visual stress while presenting
  • And much more!
