I have collected a series of open source, free, portable, mobile online and commercial software programs that might help with studying – they are not specifically assistive technology items – this is where I like the idea of mainstreaming assistive technology! The commercial products mentioned, in particular the text to speech programs, tend to offer much more than just speech synthesis. They have spell checker, note taking support, scanning and OCR, dictionaries and much more. Therefore think of the commercial text to speech products as having features that should be included in many of the other slides! Download a Study Strategy Technologies for HE Microsoft Word document version of the slides below to see the main points and web addresses.
Here are the slides that can be downloaded from SlideShare. They will be discussed on EASI Webinar on 23/02/2011.
