Case Studies

Technology is changing rapidly and it is difficult to keep up with what is the best solution for telecommunications.

We have added some practical solutions that have been submitted by a range of people with deafblindness. It is hoped that these case studies will provide useful advice about solutions that work.

Please feel free to submit your own case study so that we share the technological solutions as they become available.

To tell us about your mobile phone or computer and its accessibility please click the link to the Blog and tell us what love about your technology.
