Wyman and Dykoski both contribute to the
Collaborative’s online home, myMSmyWay.com, a
free resource for all accessible
technology-related information. Here, people can
access the “Snapshot” tool, an interactive quiz
that provides customized technology solutions
based on each individual’s specific needs.
The site also featured user-submitted
technology tips, a monthly column on accessible
technology authored by leading experts in the
field, and information about a number of
accessible technology solutions, particularly
those that are affordable and even free.
For more expensive accessible technologies,
there are resources available in nearly every
state that provide financial support for
people with disabilities looking to purchase
accessible technology. To locate an organization
in your state, visit the Rehabilitation
Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of
North America at resna.org.
