Assistive Technology is ever advancing

Assistive Technology is ever advancing, for example hearing aids are becoming more complex with better quality sound, speech recognition software can recognise with more accuracy and respond to commands, for example “insert exclamation point”!, and text-to-speech software can read many formats from a computer screen. Visual Aids, Audio Aids and Physical Aids are also becoming more user-friendly and intuitive.
