The Role of Assistive Technology in Meeting Different Needs

ICT and Assistive Technology is for all pupils. Everyone can benefit by using the accessibility tools that come as standard in many mainstream software packages.

Microsoft Office 365 can now speak, do a grammar check and check a document for its accessibility.

Text-to-speech is a powerful accessibility tool that can help raise outcomes (think of learners with dyslexia, for example).

Things like the ‘Learning Tools’, that can be freely downloaded,  incorporate speech recognition as well as text-to-speech and useful grammar tools.
