Man using a mouth-operated joystick to access a computer.

Computer access technology, to include portable digital devices, has expanded the options an individual with disabilities has to meet their personal and professional goals. There is no need for computer hardware limitations to slow individuals down, or to hinder any at-home work opportunities.  The assistive technology (AT) for computer access is out there and may include:

  • Voice recognition software to input text and control the entire computer with voice
  • Screen reading software that can read aloud what is displayed on the monitor for someone with vision loss or a reading disability
  • Magnification software, which enlarges text and graphics
  • Braille keyboards and displays
  • Alternative keyboards and mice for people with limited hand mobility and repetitive stress injuries
