The Great Lakes ADA Center in collaboration with the Southwest and Great Plains ADA Center is pleased to announce the upcoming Special Session in our Accessible Technology Series that will feature emerging technology that will enable persons to access their assistive technology for computer access from anywhere they are at as well as provide tools to “simplify” computer access for persons with cognitive disabilities and older persons who are new to technology.
Gregg Vanderheiden from the Trace Center at the University of Maryland is the featured speaker and developer of this product along with his team. The is a repeat of a session we held in early December and are offering a 2nd time due to its popularity.
Morphic-Making access to computers easier
Date: Friday, January 15, 2021
Time: 2:00pm-3:30pm ET
Speaker: Gregg Vanderheiden, Director, Trace Center, University of Maryland
This webinar will introduce a new tool for making computers easier to use for those who use assistive technologies – and those who just find computers too confusing (elders, people with cognitive disabilities, people new to desktop computing, etc.). Morphic is a unique new open-source developed tool that can be used in different ways for people with different needs. It makes it easier for people to discover and quickly access and use the features that are built into computers and many accessibility and usability features are built-into computers but are unknown or too hard to find or use. Morphic makes them available with one click – and nothing to remember.
