D. Anecdote

We received ZoomText Fusion, Read&Write V.10 Gold Mobile Software, Visibility Keyboard, and ZoomText Magnifier/Screen Reader from the Equipment Swap program and placed them in our loan bank to try with our students. At our high school, we have a student with severe visual needs, so she has enjoyed getting to know some of these products. The others we have used for our own staff education in learning the options available to our students.
