Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Oct 16, 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!

Typatone is a text-to-tone website and app that may be ideal for individuals who struggle with writing.  While typing on the website, users will hear different tones for each character.  This can make writing more exciting for people of all ages and abilities.

According to Typatone's website, "The act of writing has always been an art.  Now, it can also be an act of music.  Each letter you type corresponds to a specific musical note putting a new spin to your composition."

Other features include:

Users can type on the onscreen keyboard or their computer keyboard
Young learners will especially enjoy the fun melodies the website and app convert text into
On the app, users can personalize their writing by choosing between six moods
Each mood changes speed, filter, and color to each letter's musical note
Easily import text written in other writing applications
And more!
Check out to learn more!
