This talk will cover AbilityNet - who we are and what we do. This is
computing for people with physical, sensory and learning difficulties. There
will be a general presentation of the alternative and adaptive equipment
available; what is available for free and on the computer already (e.g.
Windows accessibility options).
Some equipment will be on display and people will have an opportunity to
try a few things out.
Anne-Marie Boyle has been with AbilityNet Scotland since 2001 as
Dionne Waltham has been with AbilityNet since 2002 and at AbilityNet
Scotland since November 2003 as consultant/assessor.
They both deal with all aspects of AbilityNet's work - assessing
individuals, making presentations, leading teaching/training seminars and
courses on alternative and adaptive equipment and software.
