Récit: Les Fonctions D’aide et Accessibilité
Les Fonctions d’aide: This site contains four categories of skills that assistive technology can support (reading, writing, revising and note taking). The categories are further broken down into learner profiles and how the tools may address specific learning needs.
Accessibilité: This tab contains guidelines for producing and choosing accessible materials. Teachers and schools should try to adhere to the level 1 guidelines.
Seeing AI is a free app that can be used for students that are visually impaired. This app is simple to use and has four main features. The features are explained through short video tutorials. This app can read short typed text, can read a typed document by taking a photo of it, can read a barcode of a product and identify it, and can recognize and describe people around you (age and emotions).
Just imagine the possibilities that this free app may offer our students with and without visual impairments.
