Have you ever tried googling what dyslexia is? Well, I have and the most useful result that comes up on the first page, is an NHS page that tells you about what symptoms in small children suggest they have dyslexia.

The Consumer Electronics Show: Is Virtual Reality a Thing of the Future?
I’ve recently been reading about the Consumer Electronics Show, an event that took place in Las Vegas very recently. In 2014, the hype for new technology was geared towards wearables (see my previous blog if you want to find out more!). However, there is a new wave of interest for something called Virtual Reality, which featured heavily at the 2015 event. I decided to give my take on what VR is, what it isn’t – and whether it has the potential to help disabled people either now or in the near future.
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 am housebound due to several medical conditions that include both M.E. & Fibromyalgia. As well as feeling generally very unwell and in pain my conditions greatly affect my energy, mobility and dexterity often rendering me bedridden.
I became housebound at a time when home PC technology was still in its infancy, and with Aidis Trust help I am learning to better utilise assistive technology such as voice recognition typing software to help where using traditional methods causes pain and exhaustion. Updates as I progress!
