Computer Access

Individuals with physical disabilities, such as paraplegics or quadriplegics, often face numerous challenges on a daily basis. Fortunately, the continuous advancements in assistive technology help improve the functional capabilities of individuals with limited mobility and make their lives easier at work, home, and in social situations.

Compusult has developed reliable assistive technology products that provide access to all functions on a computer, and make operating a keyboard and mouse an easier task. Compusult offers the Jouse+ and the JouseLite, alternative mouse option for individuals unable to use the standard mouse. The sensitive joystick can be operated with your mouth through a standard USB connection. The Jouse3 offers access to laptop or desktop computers as well as mobile devices.

Communication & Education

For any individual with a learning or developmental disability, Compusult provides numerous products to suit their needs. Communication and education tools are beneficial for those who need additional help with reading, writing, or bridging the gap between ideas and production. It can be extremely frustrating for those who have difficulty in learning and conveying concrete thoughts and ideas. Therefore, as with many other disabilities, it is vital to ensure they have the necessary equipment to help them succeed.

The Compusult Outspoken Communicator Mobile System with Proloquo2Go is a high-quality portable Augmentative and Alternative Communication solution, which includes the Proloquo2Go software pre-installed on an iPad device. It's a communication solution for anyone who can operate an iPad, and it is a great tool for children who wish to have a "cool" device for learning assistance. Please note Proloquo2Go is for iPad only.

Visual Impairment

For individuals with moderate vision loss, there are different solutions to help magnify text. Magnification devices enlarge text in books or physical documents while retaining sharp images. Portable or desktop devices provide the lighting, contrast, and adjustable text sizes that are quickly changed for different hardcopy requirements. Computer screen magnifiers provide clear images at high levels of magnification. These solutions reduce barriers to education and employment, allowing those with vision loss the ability to reach their full potential.

For individuals with severe visual impairment or blindness, there are solutions that can take directions from the user through voice recognition, and comprehensive software that works with all functions of a computer and other common software programs. The Responder monitors electronic equipment and provides notification of events using speech output to enable blind and visually impaired employees to work in security and monitoring environments. The Vindicator uses optical and electrical sensors to automatically detect on/off events and provide corresponding notification to visually or hearing impaired persons. Incorporating these solutions in the workplace allow individuals with different levels of vision loss to successfully contribute to the workforce with minimal ongoing accommodation from employers or coworkers.

Hearing Impairment

With today's technological advancements, there are a number of solutions available that allow individuals with hearing disabilities to fully participate in the work force and other societal activities. Our Closed Caption Display solutions provide a display of the spoken word that is available in a range of sizes for venues of different types. With voice recognition software, it reacts quickly to the speaker’s input and displays the words being spoken. 

Advancements within mobile technology have also increased access for individuals with hearing loss and speaking difficulties. Apps and devices allow users to type in a convenient fashion and announce the words clearly. Dedicated apps can remember frequently used phrases and limit typing. 

Workplace Accommodation

When companies provide equal employment opportunities and workplace accommodations, they often benefit from lower employee turnover, improved workplace morale, and improved products as more diverse viewpoints are present in the workplace. Workplace accommodations are one part in the process of assisting individuals in the workplace. Compusult offers numerous products to help assist employees, employers, and the work force in general and provide them with the confidence they require to develop in their field.
