Open Source Assistive Technology

Open Source Assistive Technology (Via – Technology In Academia — Connect @ EDUCAUSE.) I haven’t seen this combination often, and given I work with both Open Source and Assistive Technology, I thought I’d pass it on:

The Open source Assistive Technology Software (OATS) website is a searchable index of assistive technology enabled open source software. They’re just a new site, but they list all sorts of things from addins with Microsoft Windows full open source web browsers.

Warning, they are in beta. But, check out their “browse software based on the need that it meets” section! This is truly awe inspiring. Both Open Source and Assistive Technology give me such hope for humankind. Seeing their intersection, doubly so.
