"AccessApps consists of over 50 Open Source and freeware assistive technology applications which can be entirely used from a USB stick on a Windows computer. AccessApps will run without needing to install anything and provides a range of e-learning solutions to support writing, reading and planning, as well as visual and mobility restrictions. Last autumn, I was honoured to take part in the judging for the Scottish Open Source Software Awards 2008 and was equally delighted when AccessApps won the top award for the educational sector.

"Apart from the excellence of their product, what really struck the judges was the high level of free support offered by the AccessApp team. You will rarely find a more comprehensive, well thought-out approach to a project of any kind, Open Source or proprietary. A series of short, informative screencasts talk new users through what AccessApps is and does, how to obtain the packages and what to do with them once you have got them. Here's a link to those screencasts - check them out for yourselves and if you're not impressed, I'll be amazed."
