  1. Great compilation of assistive technology resources. I just wanted make an addition to your list. It's an artificial vision device for visual disability. It reads text from any surface whether it be a whiteboard, a screen or a street sign. Then, the blind assistive technology converts it to audio and speaks the message to the wearer instantly. It helps students with vision problems "read" on their own again.
