Here's a link to Slide Shows I created covering AT Hardware & Software available for Pay and Free. There's accessible versions of each slide show as well. The AT Software has a pretty extensive listing of FREE AT Software. Neither slide show is exhaustive, but they are great places to start and cover areas of Writing & Spelling, Reading, Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Blind and Low Vision, and Mobility. Hope this helps.

Good day,

There are three basic types, the wills, the won'ts, and the can'ts. The wills accomplish everything, the won'ts oppose everything, and the can'ts won't try anything.

Subject: [Athen] Any Listings of Free Assistive Technologies?

Hi everyone,

I'll soon be giving a presentation regarding Assistive Technologies for
the computer that are freely available. So far, I intend to touch on
the technologies listed below; However, I would welcome any additions,
or pointers to lists of such technologies already compiled on the net.
So far, I intend to cover:
1. System Access to Go
2. NVDA or nonvisual Desktop Access
3. ReadPlease text reading software.
4. The AMIS Daisy Reader
5. Orca, a screen reader for the Gnome Desktop Environment.
6. VoiceOver screen reader for the Mac

What am I missing?
