I am looking forward to attending this important event that was such a success last year. Especially as we were just coming out of COVID then. I can truly recommend the show which is free to attend but sessions will be charged for.
My subject will be :-
“The use of Assistive Technology in the Classroom and the Workplace”
It’s a wide ranging topic and will cover both what hardware and software is being used as well as what might be useful to consider to put into practice. Free and costing apps and software will be showed and demonstrated.
This also applies to any third party apps being used on a device as well.
Just been with a client today using a Synapptic Tablet. She had trouble with her emails which we eventually found out was caused by Google blocking the email function on her tablet.
Need to go Security settings on the google account concerned and do the following
– setup two factor authentication which will need a smart phone or mobile phone for a text message
– next go to security and go to “Third party apps with account access” and add “Synapptics” to the list
A 16 digit code will be generated which needs copying down or taking a photo of. It’s a one-time code that you type into Basic Email Settings of Synapptics ( synapptics doesn’t allow pasting into the password area !) under Password.
I used IMAP settings with port values Incoming 995 and SMTP port settings of 465. You can find these on the web if needed. I set them in Synapptics under the “Advanced settings” in Email.
Hi. I’m Geane, a PhD student at the University of Southampton.
My research is about finding ways for visually impaired people to be able to do more sport/physical activity. I’m seeking young adults with VI to take part in my online survey.
I would very much appreciate if you could share my advert with a link of this survey to your visually impaired members in your social media or online community.
My advert is this:
Are you visually impaired between 18 and 30 years old? Do you do physical activity or play sports? I want to hear from you all, regardless if you are active or not. If you are active I would like to hear about your experience with physical activity, sports and technologies. If you are not active, I would be interested to know why. Please fill in this online survey https://isurvey.soton.ac.uk/33270. If you have any questions, contact Geane Fontinele directly on firstname.lastname@example.org Study Reference Number ERGO/FEPS/ 51707.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards, Geane Fontinele PhD student in Web Science University of Southampton
Smartpens have been around for a longtime but the process can be difficult for some . Also the books are a ongoing costs and you cannot rub out the ink and start again.
The rocketbook does allow you to rub out your work and start again but it’s selling point is the ability to transfer work through a scan and it does accurately represent your drawing as the image below exemplifies
In the example I have stated what I think it would be good for. But it’s by no means exhaustive .
If you missed the free webinair then don’t dispair! I have made a recording for you to see the main points and listen to. It lasts 35 mins so pull up a chair, a coffee ( or glass of wine if you prefer!) and listen to and learn from Myles as he explains what “making the workplace accessible,” means.
