Computers and Ability

If you are disabled and you use a computer, there might be something to help you use the computer better or easier. Here is one place to look for adaptive or assistive devices or programs.

Dan J. Gilman experienced a spinal cord injury in 1972 and later became certified as an Assistive Technology Practitioner. He developed a web site Abilityhub.com that provides information on equipment and alternative methods for accessing computers.

There are alternatives for the mouse and keyboard, programs that magnify or read aloud text on a screen, and more. Ability Hub also offers consulting services. Beyond the computer, information is provided for electronic aids for daily living to interact with things such as TVs and lights, often by voice commands. Interested? Check it out.
