MS & Technology
Have you ever had trouble reading the text on a computer screen? What about typing on a keyboard?
For some people living with multiple sclerosis (MS), symptoms can make these everyday tasks difficult.
However, there are technologies – designed with you in mind – to help you meet these challenges and help make your life with MS easier.
What is accessible technology?
Accessible technology (AT) allows you to make adjustments to your computer to help meet your specific needs – including visual, hearing, dexterity, cognitive and speech challenges. AT seeks to make technology work for you, not against you. Many of these products are often affordable—in fact, some might be standard features on the computer you already use.
