Gadgets and Gizmos – Dee Caunt, CEO The Dyslexia Association, Nottingham on Thursday, 30 November 2017.


Dee Caunt is the ‘go to’ person when it comes to cutting edge Assistive Technology advice; and oh, by the way, the more PC term – Productivity Tools – is the one to use! Not only does Dee seem to know about every new product either on the market or coming to the market but because she herself is dyslexic she has first-hand knowledge of how it works and its efficacy. She is a veritable guru! It's a wonder Which? Magazine hasn’t snapped her up!


The hour and a half was crammed with information well displayed on two large screens in a wonderful new lecture theatre at Vision University Centre, Vision West Nottinghamshire College.


Speech recognition, Text to Speech, Proof Reading, Mind Mapping, Reading Pens plus free pc resources were just some of the areas covered during the evening and Dee even managed to include Software support tools and Adapted Digital resources for exams.


A clear and detailed PowerPoint meant we could all go home with the information we would otherwise have forgotten from overload!
