Today, we’re going to look at a few tips, tricks, and interesting features that not every Outlook user may be aware of. Hopefully even veteran users will learn something new today!

When you have physical disabilities, dealing with transportation and navigation in your area can be a major challenge.

Today, we’re going to look at five apps designed to help users with physical disabilities to more easily navigate their surroundings.

Today, we’re going to do a quick overview of the free apps that are available to students through Google Workspace. These apps are well designed with accessibility in mind, they’re free, and each app is designed to be used from anywhere, on any device. This is why the Google Workspace (formerly known as G-Suite) is a great choice for post-secondary students. Unlike primary-school aged children who often get free access to Microsoft 365, college and university students can’t always afford premium technology. So without further ado, let’s dive into the apps that are currently available for free through Google Workspace.

Student life can be challenging for anyone, and for persons with disabilities, this is especially true. Of course, there are plenty of tools and apps available to help overcome barriers surrounding disability and education, and we’ve explored many of those solutions in past e-bulletins. Unfortunately, some of these solutions require extensive training, funding/purchasing of equipment, etc., which can sometimes present a whole new set of barriers to the student. Today, we are going to look at some cutting-edge accessibility features that come built-in to mainstream technology. These features are free, they already exist on the device in question, and they are typically fairly easy to activate and operate. Let’s take a look!
