WP AccessAbilities Conference 5/30/2019

Be Smart and Be Independent!

The highly anticipated WPU AccessAbilites Conference is back! This year, we will focus on commercially available smart devices that increase the independence of individuals with disabilities (e.g., physical, visual, or hearing impairments). Join us to explore a wide range of smart devices and services, such as cloud-based voice assistants, smart light bulbs, smart outlets, smart watches, IFTTT, and augmentative and alternative communication apps. Participants will gain practical skills in how to use these affordable smart devices to increase independence for individuals with disabilities in home, school, work, and community contexts.

Tentative Topics:

  • Virtual assistants: e.g., Alexa, Google home
  • Smart Home devices: e.g., smart doorbell, smart Thermostats, Smart light bulbs, smart plugs, smart garage openers, smart security cameras, robotic cleaners.
  • Smart tablets, smart phones, smart watches
  • If This Then That (IFTTT): A free online platform to automate your life
  • Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) apps
  • Home delivery services and other home services via app (e.g., groceries, meals, medicines, clothes, pet supplies, cleaning)
