Exploring Assistive Technology
For Deaf and Hard of Hearing on the Mac
Face Time, Closed Captions, and iMessage on your Mac
In the classroom, deaf and hard of hearing students have access to this assistive technology as it is already in the Mac computers. Face Time is best for students who communicate using sign language. The pictures are clear and students can easily see gestures, facial expressions, and sign language. Closed Captions are written in easy to read text and assist that visual learner. iMessages are a great way for deaf and hearing students to communicate with each other. iMessages can be used for one-to-one correspondence or in group messages.
