GMU will highlight the increasing accessibility of mobile technology and how it is providing more opportunities in the workplace, in education, and at home for individuals with disabilities. Specific emphasis will be on smartphone technologies. Although a few apps will be discussed, this webinar will focus more on the universally designed features (I.e., text-to-speech, voice recognition, text messaging functions, home remote control solutions; scanning text, GPS, etc.) that are available on today's mobile devices. This session will include a discussion of the various features available, brief demonstrations of how some of these tools work, as well as product comparisons.
