    Voice Access App for Android

    I came across an blog post about the Voice Access app for Android. I downloaded it and tried it out on my Samsung tablet. It's very easy to use and would really help PALS who cannot use their hands, but still can use their voice (like my DH). I'd add the link, but I know that can sometimes...

    Slow progresser (long post)

    Hello to everyone, this is my first post, after spending a lot of time browsing the forums. It seems like a very supportive place. I've noticed in these groups as well as in the local ALSA support group we go to, that some people are dealing with the stress and demands of a fairly rapid...

    Switch control communication software

    Quite honestly, I'm trying for days now to make proper use of the search function here but I don't find the concentration to follow through with it.

    Power wheelchair "tie down" systems?

    We have found a nice, reasonably priced, used van that is going out to be converted for rear-entry wheelchair accessibility. They normally use the "QRT Standard Q-straint", which appears to be a basic Q-straint system. I am thinking I should at least upgrade to the Q-straint MAX or deluxe...

    House Hunting Tips

    We will be shopping for a house in the next couple of months. Is there a guide anywhere that spells out things to be aware of to make accessibility modifications easier or red flags to be aware of? I have learned a lot reading already but I am sure I am missing some things. Regards, Bruce
