Assistive Technology (AT) is found in every realm on life, including music! Every person, including those with disabilities, should be given an opportunity to explore and find what music makes them groove!

GoTalk NOW App

Overall Ease of Use: I highly recommend having the user guide open and readily available as you initially explore this app. The user guide features a quick-start section that will introduce you to the app’s core […]

Word Bank Universal – Chrome Extension

Don Johnston Inc., the creator of the popular reading and writing support software Co:Writer, has taken the plunge into the world of Google Chrome extensions. This is not surprising, considering other reading and writing software such as Read&Write by texthelp and Microsoft Office have done the same. Extensions are a trend that are not going anywhere. […]
