I have always been a fan of an assistive technology. I guess it comes from my geeky love and thus is in part why I am a blogger today. I have had a lot of questions lately about my history into adaptive technology and although I have written about it what feels like several times I just found out today that the new version of dragon (amazon affiliate) is coming out.
I also have always had a fascination with argumentative communication devices and have many friends with such systems as dynavox. I remember being fascinated with this facet of technology from a young age. My first use of assistive technology was in grade school and I used Co:writer a word prediction software. From there I went to use dragon dictate for windows in the mid 90s and later more recently I use a new version of dragon (not 12) and Kurzweil 3000. These software packages, which are often considered assistive technology although often a bit costly changed how I relate to my online world: it helps me not only with my productivity and output but also the clarity of the text I am producing. In all honesty without assistive technology I don’t think I would have survived as a blogger or frankly graduated college.I was allowed to use assistive technology to reach graduation requirements
