We're all used to operating our PCs and laptops with a mouse, and many of us have got used to touch screens on our tablets and smartphones. But what if you can't use a mouse? What if you can't see the screen? How would you control your machines then?
The answer could be with Assistive Technology (AT) - either based on software or hardware. These products are a life saver for those with disabilities or impairments. But how do they work?
In this presentation Graham Armfield from Coolfields Consulting will demonstrate voice recognition software and a couple of screen readers - as used by those with motor impairments, and those who are blind. He'll also cover some of the things that those with websites and apps need to think about to allow users with these tools to use them fully.
