Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Sep 15, 2023

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!

If you’re looking for an affordable app to help keep family to-do lists, calendars, shopping lists, and more, organized all in one place, check out the FamilyWall app!  FamilyWall helps manage your family’s everyday life by sharing everyone’s schedules and activities, tracking grocery lists, planning for dinner, managing to-dos, as well as locating children when they’re outside.

One of the built-in features is the shared calendar that helps organize everyone’s schedules, activities, and appointments in one place that’s accessible anytime, anywhere.  It syncs with your phone or favorite calendar, so you’ll never miss a birthday or special event.

Almost all features are free to use, however, some features are only available with FamilyWall Premium.  With the premium plan, you can enjoy the following benefits:

  • Easily manage and share your finances
  • Sync with Google and Outlook Calendar
  • Locate family members
  • Plan your meals ahead for the week
  • Enjoy audio and video messaging
  • And more!
