Interesting article discussing how assistive technology applications are being integrated into mainstream educational testing applications. It appears to focus more in the primary/secondary education space, but offers some insights as to how these tools are being considered for students. What is interesting in this age of exam standardization, though, is that different states and school districts are implementing the AT solutions differently.
