Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Dec 6, 2019

PicoToons Coloring Book:

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!

Children of all ages love coloring! It's become common even for adults to color (hence the recent trend of adult coloring books.) A very common way to unwind is to color either with traditional crayons and paper, or on an app!

The PicoToONs Coloring Book features simulated drawing tools like crayons, brushes, and pencils. It also offers a special effects tool so you can easily draw things like water droplets, bubbles, grass, fur, and more. The developers behind the app wanted to make the app as user-friendly as possible. To do so, they added a “unique customizable user interface allowing you to adjust the app to your child’s abilities and/or liking.

Other features include:

  • Over 120 "beautiful" toon-like coloring pages
  • A Myriad of drawing tools like: pencils, crayons, brushes, sprays, markers, buckets, and sparkling glitter paint, too!
  • Special effects tools like: ornaments, fur, grass, bubbles, etc.
  • Over 50 customizable patterns
  • And a Built-in gallery to save your drawings and finish or edit them later!
