terrymc's curator insight, February 27, 2013 5:54 AM

I'd like to discover more case studies of this is practice in a range of disciplines, to hear how effective different appraoches are in context.

Angela C. Dowd's comment, February 27, 2013 12:45 PM
This is a wonderful article. I'd like to learn more. Scanning existing books for learners with disabilities is a first step in making content accessible. Hopefully eBook publishers will create books that are well designed visually, using space, images and semantic structure. And hopefully school budgets will see the advantage of purchasing these types of eBooks.

GT | Research - Device Helps Children with Disabilities Access Tablets | atis4all | Scoop.it
ATIS4all project's insight:

Imagine not being able to touch a touch-screen device. Tablets and smartphones—with all their educational, entertaining and social benefits—would be useless. 

 

Researchers at Georgia Tech are trying to open the world of tablets to children whose limited mobility makes it difficult for them to perform the common pinch and swipe gestures required to control the devices.
