ASSISTIVE SOFTWARE

computer programs that are specially designed to enable individuals with disabilities to use the applications. For example, a screen reader, which represents a software program designed for users with visual impairment, can be used in conjunction with a speech synthesizer, in order to convert information on the computer monitor into speech.

ASSISTIVE SOFTWARE: "A person developing assistive software is mostly interested in developing programs that help individuals with some type of disability."
