IPad and Google Apps with Assistive Features

I recently participated in two webinars facilitated through Georgia Tools for Life: Georgia’s Assistive Technology Act Program.  The first webinar focused on fine motor and sensory apps and shared this comprehensive list with the participants.

The second webinar demonstrated Google Apps and Extensions with assistive features.  From the apps shared, I was most excited to try out Voice Not.es, which allows users to watch videos and take notes in the same browser window.  These notes are time stamped and synced to your Google Drive.

Another app that you may want to check out is Newsela.  This reading tool publishes daily new articles that can be adjusted to 5 different reading levels.

If you would like to watch the webinar recordings, both are archived on the Tools for Life website.
