Re: Assistive Device Behaviour Chart

Hi Mary,

I have to admit that I'm not that familiar with assistive devices. I performed a search in Google, and it gave me the following page: http://www.soundlinks.com/pwgen.htm. It does mention you have to be in the UK or Ireland to download, and the password for the software is provided on the page.

I downloaded the software, and it works quite well. Being a novice, it was the easiest one to get to grips with, as it required very little configuration to get the results I was after. I would be interested to hear from people who have used it extensively, as it's probably at that point all the extra features of the expensive devices are useful.

Best regards.

I think your chart will be helpful to a lot of people. I have one question. I thought that pwWebSpeak has not been supported for a couple of years. Is this something that people can still get their hands on?

Subject: Assistive Device Behaviour Chart

Hi All, I'm new to this group.

I have decided to maintain a chart of the capabilities of assistive devices so that developers can keep track of how they behave under certain circumstances: [http://www.juicystudio.com/assistivedeviceschart.html]. The charts are in their infancy at the moment, and require a lot more data before they could be considered a useful resource. Having said that, there is already some useful information in there to help us begin to understand. I'm hoping to get feedback from users of these devices and from web developers
