From magnifying glasses to ZoomText

Do you remember when adaptive technology was someone pulling out a magnifying glass to read the fine print or a folding metal wheelchair? Today we have ZoomText and smart wheelchairs with Internet connections, wireless local connectivity and adaptive user interfaces. If you are looking to purchase adaptive technology for computers or for living devices be sure to vist the Seniors' Info website for guides on choosing the technology and finding out what devices qualify for government funding or subsidy. Click on the alphabetical links for topics of interest specifically to seniors including computers, technology, Internet and Seniors (for guides to senior services). So, if you remember ear trumptets or any other strange paraphernalia you can believe that improved technology exists to make these the best of days. Pat
