accessibility tools shared that are available automatically on Droids and IOS devices. Also, several apps shared for devices to get free or with a fee. Next steps to add to this presentation or another webinar- apps or extensions for Chromebooks for the visually impaired

She was delightful! thanks for sharing all the accessibility options on the iPad and iOS devices. I knew about some of them, but it wainscot to see the others. I also loved the apps available for sight impaired students. They could also be used for students who have difficulty writing notes legibly or have slower processing times and by the time they write something down they have forgotten the content or information taught.
