Learn about the Assistive Software Knowledgebase, a new resource that the Center for Inclusive Design & Innovation (CIDI) is developing to help people make informed choices about selecting, acquiring and using specialized computer software in the workplace! This webinar will review several text-based augmentative communication apps which can be utilized by individuals with temporary or long-term communication difficulties in the workplace environment. Features of each app will be reviewed, including platform, speech output, language organization strategies, visual layout and accessibility.
