Earlier this month I wrote about how iPads (and touchpad devices more generally) have the potential to “change the lives of disabled people”.
The Oxford and Oldham ACE Centres have created a set of amazing films showing how assistive technology supports and enables disabled people to access things like education, work and leisure, and so achieve their potential.
Two of my favourite examples are below: Tiago and Darren
If you have a spare 30 minutes and have even a passing interest in tech, disability and the possibilities when those two things come together, I can’t recommend highly enough watching these videos.
