Thanks so much to several readers who pointed out that links to the PowerPoint as Assistive Technology series had broken. Sweat is flying off my brow as I get these links corrected. You should be able to access all the samples, templates, and handouts now at Google Docs in my PPT folder. Thanks so much for your patience with this transition!!
So far, so good, but I appreciate your help...
I've tested all the links and they worked fine at the time. But if you find any broken ones, please, pretty please let me know of any you come across that need repairing and I'll get right on that.
Coming up next, PPT communication on the Kindle Fire
In addition to my flurry of activity trying to update the links for you, I am also in the process of working out a communication PPT for the Kindle File (Shhhh, don't tell my daughter, as it's a surprise for her birthday next week). There is a lot the Kindle Fire does that she will enjoy...movies, audio and print books, YouTube. The Fire doesn't have many options for communication apps, though...
...and none of them appear to be ideal for access by eye pointing. For one, none appear at first glance to have customizable spacing between choices. For another, any that are built with a button format are symbol-based rather than words. We plan for the Fire to be a quick, on-the-go back-up tool, so what I can create in PPT should be just fine for those immediate messages she wants to share.
I'll keep you posted!
