Dyslexia and Assistive Technology

 

This presentation will look at how people with dyslexia can use technology, including Windows laptops, Chromebooks, iPads / iPhones, smart phones and tablets to make it easier for them to engage with text.

To help with reading, we will look at:

  • Changing the appearance of text on the display
  • Text to Speech software and apps
  • Reading Pens
  • Getting accessible text

To help with writing, we'll look at:

  • Speech recognition
  • Word prediction
  • Spellcheckers / Grammar checkers

Presented by Allan Wilson, CALL Scotland, and Alan Stewart, Assistive Technology Support Service, The Highland Council.

There will be posters and other resources to take away.
