Adaptech Research Network’s Free and/or Inexpensive Assistive Technology Database
We recently updated and added several new hardware, software, and mobile applications to our extensive database of free and inexpensive adaptive technology. We also reviewed the built-in accessibility features for Macintosh (El Capitan; 10.11.2), Windows 8.1, Windows 10, iPhone (iOS 9.3.2) , iPad (iOS 9.2.1), and several Android phones. While the focus was on technologies for college students in the health and pure and applied sciences, the new additions are likely to be of interest to students in all fields. This work was funded by Funded by Table interordres provinciale du secteur anglophone (TIPSA).
