Reading and Writing
Technology provides a wide variety of tools which can be used by people who are blind or have low vision for reading and writing. These tools can be divided into categories based on the modality the user chooses to accomplish reading and writing tasks: visual, tactile, auditory. Many readers will choose a combination of these tools depending on the amount of reading and writing required and the task to be accomplished.
