  1. Digital Age Technology Assistive Technology

  2. Assistive Technology • Introduction • Definition • Interactions • Conclusion • Questions session

  3. What Do All of these have in common Assistive Technology Remember Milk

  4. Assistive Technology • Low Technology • Medium Technology • High technology • Examples???

  5. For whom Do you use a form of AT ??? Yes What Is it? Can you think of somebody who doesn’t use AT? No

  6. Remember these …. Assistive Technologies

  7. Digital Age Technology and AT Stage 3 Stage 1 Stage 2 Some Processing

  8. Stage 1 : Data Input

  9. Stage 2 : Processing

  10. Stage 3 : Output Action Processed Action Phone calls selected contact Music Player plays selected song

  11. How does this help? • Faster • Natural to speak • Inclusive • Interactive learning

  12. The Reverse is also true • Text to speech

  13. Computing power • Moore's law • This has allowed for smaller portable devices to contain high processing power on the go. • The Laptop has allowed users to be more productive and hence this assists user to achieve more.

  14. Where can I find AT.. • Most modern Operating systems have it built in. • Windows vista has speech recognition built into it • http://www.microsoft.com/enable/products/windowsvista/speech.aspx • Mac – has a tool called Voice over that is more integrated with other devices on the market • http://www.apple.com/accessibility/voiceover/devicesupport.html

  15. Fun with Assistive Technologies RealD’s 3D Glasses fit this description, since they are a simple device that when a 3D image is projected the lenses in the glasses are polarised and this allows for different parts of the image to be displayed and hence the image can seem like it has become 3D

  16. Is Assistive Technology Useful • Yes • Used in a wide range of places with out even known • No longer the secret of the digital age

  17. References • Apple’s Commitment to accessibility • http://www.apple.com/accessibility/

  18. Any Questions Thank you for your Time
