Suggestions Welcome!

Here at Maryland TAP, we are in the process of adding new devices to our assistive technology loan library.  As technology changes over time, we remove items from our loan library that are no longer being made and replace them with new and updated assistive technology devices.

Devices in our loan library can be borrowed for four weeks to help those with disabilities determine which device is best for them before they make any purchases.  We serve all ages and all types of disabilities.  We also loan assistive technology to family members or professionals who use it for evaluations, demonstrations, or presentations.

Below are a few items we are thinking about adding to our assistive technology loan library in the coming months.  Comment in the comment section under this post with any suggestions for devices, software, or apps that you’d like to see us add to our assistive technology loan library!

 

Quha Zono Mouse: A wireless computer mouse that can be worn on the head or hand.  It uses gyroscopic technology to match movement of the head or hand with movement of the mouse on the computer screen.

Snow 10 Pro: A portable video magnifier with a large 10-inch screen.  It also features OCR (Optical Character Recognition), which allows the user to take a picture of printed text and have it read out loud.

One-handed Cake Server: A cake server that could allow someone with the use of only one hand to cut and serve cake with ease.

    Many of the families I like really like the C-Pen reader, the Livescribe Pen and learning more about accessibility features and apps as well as extensions on the devices they already own:) Perhaps a Chromebook with many helpful extensions such as Read and Write for Google Chrome and Co-writer Universal. Families would also appreciate getting an iPad loaner with helpful AAC apps such as LAMP WFL, Speak For Yourself, Proloquo2go and Bridge Communication.

      Thank you for all of these great suggestions, Joan! Things that we currently have available for loan include iPads with AAC apps, the C-Pen Reader, and the Livescribe Echo Pen. The Chromebook with reading and writing extensions is a great suggestion, and we will look into the possibility of adding that to our loan library as well!
