As we know, Assistive Technology comes in many forms. From the wheelchair that increases mobility to communication apps that give someone a voice, AT is everywhere.
There is one piece of assistive technology that most everyone carries, and that is a smart phone. A smart phone has a wide range of uses that extend beyond social media, selfies, Texting, and phone calls.
Assistive Technology features built into Smartphones
Talk Back and other text-to-speech (TTS) features allow your smartphone or tablet to read any text on the screen. This helps those with visual impairments or learning disabilities receive information from their devices.
Smartphones come with Dictation features built in so that a person can type on the screen without having to use a manual keyboard.
Organization and Attention
Both Android and iOS come with a built in calendar app that can be accessed through your smartphone, tablet, or computer. The Calendar app makes it easy to keep up with important dates, Events, and daily reminders to keep you focused and on task.
