Assistive Technology Support FAQs

Why assistive technology?

For employees with different learning disabilities or other disabilities, an assistive technology service can be very beneficial in providing the extra support they need to perform their job duties successfully. These technologies can also aid education processes, boosting certain skill deficits to provide disabled employees with an overall more level playing field in the workplace.

By providing technical support for your adaptive or assistive technology, you can ensure that your employees always have access to the tools they need to succeed and can make the most out of them.

What technical support do assistive technology tools need?

As they are often electronic devices, certain assistive technology tools require technical support in order to function properly. For example, text-to-speech software may need to be configured to work with the employee’s specific computer system.

In addition, some digital technology tools may need to be updated on a regular basis in order to keep up with the latest advances in technology, for example, augmentative and alternative communication devices or certain types of computer hardware.

How does adaptive or assistive technology support workers?

Employers can support the learning process of workers with a physical or learning disability by providing the right digital tools and developing customised work tasks. This can help employees with learning difficulties or disabilities excel in the workplace.

For example, an employee who has a visual impairment can be given text-to-speech software, such as talking spell checkers, electronic dictionaries and talking calculators, to help them with their work tasks. These types of digital tools can make it easier for employees to complete their work and improve their productivity.
