PSA: Thumb-Drive Screen Reader Software - Free

A company called Serotek is starting a program to provide their Screen Access Mobile software on thumb drives to blind children in grades K-12 free of charge.

The drive is compatible with XP and later Microsoft operating systems (not sure about Mac compatibility). To enroll in the program, the child's parent would need to complete the application and eligibility form. This includes providing proof of the child's vision impairment.

The software works as soon as the thumb drive is plugged in and returns the computer to its normal functioning once the drive is removed. A child can plug it into any computer running XP or later OS and not need to bring their own computer with them everywhere.

The software is available for adults at $499.
