Videos of people using assistive technology

Via ATMac I recently came across AssistiveWare videos on computer accessibility, a number of videos that show how people with various disabilities use assistive technology with their computers.

What is especially good with these videos is that they don’t only show people using screen readers or other assistive technology for people who are visually impaired. Not that there is anything wrong with showing how screen readers work, but many aren’t aware that Web accessibility is about more than visually impaired people.

A few examples of what these videos show:

All of these are also available in high resolution formats from the AssistiveWare website, where you can find several more videos.

These videos are really great, and I highly recommend that you watch them to get a better idea of how assistive technology can improve lives.
