COMPUTERS  -  SOFTWARE & DEVICES

Please click on HIGH TECH to see more information about technology available today to people with impaired vision, hearing or mobility.

This section has links to computer software, devices and high-tech items that can help you do the activities you like to do on your desktop or laptop a little more easily.

For example, accessibility software exists that can magnify the text in your computer so you can read it more clearly.  You can also read books online that can be magnified as much as you need them to be.  Software exists to make the cursor on your screen more visible by putting a big red circle around it.  (This is great, as I often "lose" my cursor despite having normal vision!)  Voice-activated software can perform tasks in your computer and special keyboards can make typing less uncomfortable if your hands are stiff, weak or in pain. The mouse has also been redesigned into many styles, making these easier and less painful to use.

In addition to the computer itself, tables are available to hold your laptop more comfortably.
