Chrome Assistive Technology Toolbox

"As educators we believe that students with vision, hearing, physical, communication, and learning challenges have the same potential to learn as anyone else if the "mechanical" impediments to participation in the classroom are removed or lessened...We have attempted to collect many of the available apps and extensions which we believe could foster alternative forms of access for real learning to occur, with the ultimate hope of extending the definition as to who can be a learner in any particular setting."

Chrome has an amazing number of free apps and extensions that help to provide access to individual whom have 'vision, hearing, physical, communication, and learning challenges.' This website allows you to search for by task, profile or keyword and includes a Google Presentation "Co-opting Chrome to Help Learners." Although these apps may be marketed as geared to assistive technology they are useful for all students.
