Finding the best assistive technology
Everyone, including people with disabilities or age-related limitations, should be able to communicate,
express themselves, and connect with the world using technology. HP is committed to increasing accessibility
awareness within HP and with our customers and partners. Whether it's large fonts that are easy on the eyes,
voice recognition that lets you give your hands a rest, or any other assistive technology to help with your
specific situation—a variety of assistive technologies make HP products easier to use. How do you choose?
Assessing your needs
Technology can unleash your potential. Assistive technology removes barriers and helps you create
independence at home, at work, and in the community. Assistive technology (AT) helps increase, maintain,
and improve the functional capabilities of electronic and information technology.
You may choose from many AT products. Your AT assessment should allow you to evaluate several products,
answer your questions, and facilitate your selection of the best solution for your situation. You will find that
professionals qualified to do AT assessments come from many fields, including those licensed or certified in
physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech/language pathology, and other areas of expertise. Others,
while not certified or licensed, may also provide evaluation information. You will want to ask about the
individual's experience, expertise, and fees to determine if they are appropriate for your needs.
