Editorial Reviews

This thorough treatment of adaptive technologies should serve as a primer for library science students, librarians, individuals with disabilities and their friends, family members, and co-workers. The information is presented in non-technical language in a clear, logical, step-by-step manner. Chapters progress through PC hardware basics, vision impairments, deaf, motor, speech, and general learning disabilities. Foundations for assistive technology (evaluation, training, and technical support), funding issues, and accessing the Internet and Intranets are followed by an extensive (100+ page) appendix and index. Over 200 assistive technology products are included in Appendix E, which lists product, type, class, platform, vendor, address, phone, fax, e-mail, and Web address. The reader will come away with an understanding of the myriad adaptive technology aids that exist to level the playing field for people with disabilities. Highly recommended.
