Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Jun 8, 2012

A weekly look at assistive technology--tools designed to assist people with vision, mobility, or hearing impairments.  Produced by the INDATA Project at Easter Seals Crossroads in Indiana.


Hi folks. Welcome to “Accessibility Minute”, your weekly look at Assisitive Technology—those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs.

Do you ever feel overwhelmed with all the assistive and adaptive products out there? Do you ever wish that there was a centralized resource for information about assistive technology products?  Well, the AbleData project helps with just that.  You can find all types of assistive technology by category like, Aids for Daily Living, Blind and Low Vision or Communication. You can search for products by feature or name.  You can even find resources like conferences and vendors.  Best of all, AbleData doesn't sell anything and this federally-funded project is an objective source of useful information.  Visit to learn more.
