Technology Mentoring

Assistive technology mentoring is about helping individuals understand how technology can solve their workplace problems.

This often involves using several different tools together in a unique way to the individual this can include things like screen readers, speech-to-text engines, mind mapping tools, and organisational tools. What is important here is not the power of the technology but rather the requirements of the individual. In our experience, we have often found less is more and that there are many free tools out there for individuals to try and experiment with as they build their own processes to be as effective as possible within the workplace.

Assistive technology mentoring builds strategies that work for individuals, in addition to improving existing strategies for individuals to use to improve workplace efficiency and overcome communication challenges.

Examples of technology covered include:

  • Speech to Text – Dragon Naturally Speaking
  • Screen Reading – OrCam, Read&Write
  • Mind Mapping – MindView, Inspiration
  • Organisation – Evernote, Todoist, Trello
