Assistive technology software can be invaluable for individuals who find using standard DSE equipment or software difficult.  For example, someone with a sight impairment could struggle to see information on their screen, whereas a physical disability could make typing or mouse use problematic.  ​But assistive technology has another application - the capability to make work smarter and more efficient for everyone.

This free webinar, hosted by Neal Cameron of DSE Scotland Limited and presented by Rebecca Stearn of Iansyst Ltd, provides a basic introduction to assistive technology software.  Rebecca will consider some of the in-built accessibility options available in Microsoft Windows, proprietary software such as Dragon speech recognition as well as mind-mapping software.   There will be a Q&A session at the end of the session.

This event is highly recommended for DSE assessors and anyone else with an interest in - or responsibility for - DSE use at work, including line managers; HR, facilities, safety and occupational health professionals.
