The government have issued a report on the benefits of using Assistive Technology in the workplace. Apart from the obvious benefits in terms of access and equality AT is becoming more affordable and more widespread through the use of integrating AT into mainstream software and hardware producers. The danger is that we think free always is the way to go. The truth is it depends on the individual and the personal choices that people make as to AT being effective. This is a key element which is not addressed in this report in my opinion. The good points refer to up to date technologies being used so training and information sharing is vital. The report has findings which I fully endorse.
