Assistive Technology

Assistive Technology is all around us! Many of the tools available are free or cost very little to use. On the following pages are lists of Assistive Technology tools you may find useful when completing various tasks both in or out of school. Many of these tools may help you complete tasks more quickly, easily, or independently. Tools are broken down into sub-categories such as Reading, Writing, or Notetaking, for example. All apps and programs on the following pages are free or cost less than $25.

We do our best to stay updated on the latest information about the apps on the following pages along with adding the latest and greatest apps as soon as they come out. If you find an error in our listing or want to share a program, software, website or app that we should add, please contact: disability@samford.edu
