Computer Access

Assistive Technology (AT) is an umbrella term that includes assistive, adaptive, and rehabilitative devices for people with disabilities and also includes the process used in selecting, locating, and using them. AT promotes greater independence by enabling people to perform tasks that they were formerly unable to accomplish, or had great difficulty accomplishing, by providing enhancements to or changed methods of interacting with the technology needed to accomplish such tasks.

Computer Access is acheived through the implementation of a single or at times a combination of assistive or adaptive technology solutions. These solutions range from the straight forward such as replacing a mouse with a trackball to the extremely complex that might include speech recognition, a headmouse and auto-click software.

Fortunatley there are hundreds of companies actively creating new ways to interact with the computer and as these technologies emerge, barriers to accessing computer technologies for persons with disabilites are reduced.
