So I blogged last week about technology and how it changes people’s lives. I’ve now read an article on Wired.com which talks about the team of people that makes Facebook accessible to disabled people. I decided to write a blog about how I – and other disabled people – use Facebook, what I still struggle with, and whether I think the accessibility is getting any better.

I’ve been thinking about how much technology and disability aids play a role in my day-to-day life. Living with my disability can sometimes be hard but technology makes it so much easier. I’m going to write about some of mine and my friend’s experiences of using technology that has helped us, but also some of the simpler gadgets and tricks that you may not expect to be as transforming as they are.
The BBC recently published an article about technology in schools, and whether our country’s kids are being bombarded with it, when it may not even be useful to them! With this in mind, I thought I’d write a blog on disabled people’s technology at University, both when the technology given is helpful – and when it really isn’t!
This week, I’ll be discussing how speech recognition can be used to control computer technology. This is nothing new, however, it is often misunderstood and as it’s being rolled out to different computer platforms with differing success and considerations, we thought we’d better take a fresh look.
I know I’ve been continuing my gaming blogging series (which I hope everyone is enjoying reading as much as I am enjoying writing it!) but being a bit of a googler as well, I decided to look into eBooks and how easy they are to access online.
