Hello all,

Does anyone know of sources of royalty free images of assistive technology that can be used in presentation and online training e.g. head switches, sip and puff switches etc?

We have done the standard Flickr and Google searches, and tried some stock photography sites, but finding images for commercial use appears to be near impossible.

Appreciate any help and advice,
Sarah

Sarah,
have you checked with the manufacturers themselves. they should have
lots of images and be willing to share. Seems to be free advertising.

Sarah, try searching CreativeCommons. You can pick services such as flickr
or google images, with results limited to royalty free licenses:

NFB's Technology Resource List is fairly complete. Although I didn't see any
photos of devices and AT, it does list the manufacturers and you can contact
them for free product shots. https://nfb.org/technology-resource-list

NFB's online store/catalog has photos:
