Statewide 'Demo Days' scheduled

Monday, March 2, 2009

TERRE HAUTE -- There are many ways to access a computer other than a standard keyboard and mouse.

"Accessible computing" refers to the accessibility of a computer system to all people, regardless of disability or severity of impairment.

The INDATA Project at Easter Seals Crossroads will host a series of free statewide "Demo Days" of different assistive technology devices. The next "Demo Day," will feature devices that assist people with accessing computers and will take place Friday, March 13, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., at the WILL Center, 4312 S. 7th St., Terre Haute.

Those having difficulty using a computer with the standard keyboard and mouse or those simply interested in learning about other ways a user can access a computer are invited to learn about and experience the devices available.

To register for a free half-hour appointment during "Demo Day," contact Carol Girt at 1-888-466-1314. Those interested are urged to register by 4 p.m., Thursday, March 12.

Accessible computing demonstrations include Head/Eye Control Systems, Programmable Trackballs and Mice, Braille Keyboards, Various Switches, Voice Input, Touch Screens, Large Print Keyboards, Typing Aids and more.
