What free assistive technology is available for my computer?

There are an increasing number of free assistive technology options for your computer. These are usually less sophisticated and have fewer features than the software you can buy, but if you want to surf the web, send and receive emails and write basic documents, then one of these might be for you:

Magnification options

  • Lightning express
  • Desktop Zoom

Screen-reading options
