Assistive Technology

March 15, 2015
Every now and then I find myself looking for something to help someone with a different need. Here are a few good examples of some programs that may help. I just read about these and it's nice to have a list for when they are needed. It's nice to see these more and more as there are many people who could use them in order to help them get things done easier.
