Accessible Computing and Assistive Technology Lab

Oregon Conference on Direct Support / Arc of Oregon Annual Convention
Corvallis: June 16th - 17th, 2005


ERI staff demonstrated a wide variety of computer applications and assistive technologies in a hands-on, consumer oriented area open for drop-in exploration of different technology exhibits.


Assistive technology is a long-term process whose goal is to provide an individual with technology to aid in their performance of tasks related to work, academics, life skills, recreation, basic sensory perception, or any other aspect of life.


Demonstrations focused on:
- Using Control Switches
- Aids for Visual impairment
- Basic Communication Devices
- Accessible Computing
- Home Automation
- Video Communication
- Voice Recognition


Picture Planner, also shown during the conference, is an icon (picture) based scheduling system that assists individuals with disabilities in planning activities by the day, week, or month.


The project that evolved into Picture Planner arose out of several other software development projects designed to help individuals with disabilities live more productive, satisfying, and independent lives.
