Simple Solutions Series Writing Guides

first_imgLetter and Envelope Writing Guides The INDATA Project at Easter Seals Crossroads is dedicated to providing the public with information on assistive technology, events, workshops, and everything that makes life for individuals with disabilities a little bit easier. Although we tend to focus on new, innovative and exciting products that are elaborate and are at times expensive, sometimes heavy duty machinery and pricey software are not required to meet the needs of an individual with a disability. Sometimes the solution is rather simple.The Simple Solutions Series is going to focus on the everyday, inexpensive innovations that have been designed to make day-to-day living easier and more efficient. Each week we will introduce a  product or service that is functional, easily accessible, and, above all, simple.Writing Guides:Writing Guides are used by individuals with low vision or visual impairments. The usually heavy-duty black guides create a contrast and straight edge that make it easier for these individuals to see and write on various types of forms. Writing guides are used in a number of different applications: taking notes at work or in the classroom on lined paper, writing letters, addressing envelopes, writing and signing checks, etc.This simple solution makes every day writing and signing activities much easier for those who would otherwise have a hard time seeing or signing forms. It is an inexpensive tool that can make a world of difference.To view and purchase various types of writing guides visit the Maxi Aids website. The INDATA Loan Library also has a number of these tools available for loan.Share this…TwitterFacebookPinterestLinkedInEmailPrint RelatedVibrating ARC Pen Helps Those with Parkinson’s WriteApril 16, 2015In “Independent Living”Microsoft Ease of Access CenterMarch 1, 2011In “Products and Devices”ATU256 – ATLAS Vantagepoint, Podcasts Now on Google Play, Google AT Grants Awarded, $400k ALS AT Challenge PrizesApril 22, 2016In “Assistive Technology Update”last_img read more
