About this event

Introduction to Assistive Technology for students with physical difficulties:

What will I learn?

• What is assistive technology (AT).

• Advice on students using the computer well to make best use of Assistive Technology.

• About touch-typing resources for different hand functions and alternative keyboard and mouse control.

• About free adjustments that can be made to iPad and Windows to suit different physical abilities

• About free speech-to-text software in Google Docs, Microsoft Office 365 and on your phones.

• About free reading features/programs on the iPad, Android, Google and for Windows

• How to get access to electronic learning materials and texts.

• About a variety of alternative text input options.

This training will be held online using Google Meet.

You will need an internet connection and you will need to ensure that the sound and mic is working on your device. A headset with a mic is advisable.

While you can participate in this training via your phone a larger screen on a PC, laptop or tablet is highly advisable.

I will send you an email with a link to the Google Meeting 30 mins before the training begins. Please log in early if you anticipate any difficulties with logging in. I will happily assist you with these before the training but it is challenging to support participants to log in once I begin delivering the training. Questions, comments and contributions are welcome either through the chat or using you mic but please ensure your mic is muted when you are not speaking.

I will email you in advance of the training with links, videos and resources for the training. If appropriate for the training I will also send you a link to download and install some software. If you have this installed in advance I can take you through the training with a more hands on experience. If for any reason you cannot install the software in advance the training will be more of demonstration experience for you. I cannot assist participants to install the software once the training has begun.
