Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Sep 22, 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!

Bedtime stories are a great way for your child to wind down before bed.  There are several apps that feature magical bedtime stories, one of them being SmartDreams.  The SmartDreams Bedtime Stories app is a “unique bedtime story app that transforms your child’s bedtime routine into a spellbinding journey of imagination.”

Unlike other bedtime story apps, this one is powered by artificial intelligence (AI).  Each tale is a one-of-a-kind journey crafted around your child’s preferences.

Other features include:

  • The app fosters a love for reading and enhances your child’s literacy skills
  • Each adventure offers more than just a captivating narrative; it teaches invaluable life lessons that stay with your child long after the final page is turned
  • Children can read the stories by themselves or have the app read them aloud
  • With offline mode, you can keep the magic going anywhere at anytime
  • Share your child’s creative stories with family and friends effortlessly and securely
  • Children can customize different narrative elements such as:
    • Heroes
    • Sidekicks
    • Animals
    • Foods 
    • Locations
    • And more
