Thanks, John!

I should have said that I'm looking for a general AT resource list for
individuals to know what alternatives exist rather than just one of each
type of item. For example, screen magnification programs include ZoomText,
Magic, Supernova, Lunar, Big Shot. Screenreaders include: HAL, JAWS, and
Window Eyes. Just figured there's someone who's already come up with a list
and hoping they would share. It's for a presentation to a group of parents
of students in K-12 and what type of AT might be used in college (or on
their way to college).

Thanks to all!

You're going to need speech output and also enlargement.

We have:

A large screen monitor
A CCTV system
Kurzweil 1000
Open Book

Some schools use SuperNova as well, or instead of some of these programs.
Good program, also.

If you are needing to get started for one particular individual, check to
see what that person has skills in using, since each of these has a learning
curve (some more steep than others.)

[Athen] Request for AT list

Hello all and happy Friday!

Does anyone have a basic AT list regarding AT for individuals who are blind
or have low vision. I'm needing a list and didn't want to recreate the
wheel - so to speak - if someone already has such a list.

Mucho thanks!
