We are excited to be a part of the Assistive Technology market with the Intel® Reader. If you haven’t heard of it, the Intel® Reader is an Assistive Technology device that transforms printed text to the spoken word for those with reading-based disabilities or impaired vision. You can find details, specs, and images on this exciting device here. We also have weekly webinars that give those that have never seen or used an Intel® Reader a great overview of the product and insight into how the device can benefit those with reading-based disabilities or impaired vision. You can find out more about those webinars and register to attend one here.
Facebook is a great recourse for finding information about assistive technology. In addition to staying up to date with CTL and the Intel Reader on Facebook here are 10 pages we think are worth liking.
