Panther Technology has created a new access app for individuals with mobility challenges called Panther Connect.
Panther Connect app compatible with iPad is currently on sale (50%) for 29.99 for a limit time (thru August 17?). This app provides alternative direct access to the iPad for individuals with mobility challenges. iTunes describes its key features as:
– Five Innovative Access Modes
– Baseline Technology for consistent access
– Editing Capability
– Control iTunes
I am anxious to see how Panther Connect app works. Will this assist with such tasks as zooming (requires two fingers) or performing other tasks not easily performed by individuals with significant mobility impairment but who can direct access the touch screen?
Panther Connect app appears to be developing other adaptive access app for the iPad that will support reading, writing, math and games and also bundles of their apps for individuals with Autism and CP. Check out their website for more information. If you are in the market for an access app, it might be a good time to buy!
