Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Jan 1, 2021

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!

This pandemic has left many feeling socially disconnected from their friends and family.  Technology has made it easier with Skype, social media, etc., but many individuals aging-in-place find using an ordinary tablet to be nearly impossible.  If you're looking for a more senior-friendly tablet, check out the GrandPad Tablet!

The GrandPad is the "smart, simple, and safe way to connect seniors with family, friends, and caregivers."  The tablet comes with built-in essential apps and other features to make it as accessible as possible!

While using this tablet, users will be able to:

Make unlimited voice and video calls to anywhere in the world
Share photos and videos with family and friends
Enjoy music and games
Safely browse the internet
And so much more!
Visit to learn more!
