Case Study: Independence for a student with disabilities

How an award-winning UDL study tool created independence for a student with disabilities

“There are a wide variety of assistive technology solutions claiming to help people with disabilities study independently. But only one provided the true mechanism for self-expression that I was looking for, and that was Sonocent.” 

Yishai Barth is a high-school student at Hebrew College in Newton, Massachusetts who has dyslexia, dyspraxia and visual and physical impairments. Over the years, he and his family have searched, with little success, for a tool to help him overcome his issues with writing, typing, self-expression and note-taking in class.
In 2014, his mother flew from the family home in Boston to Orlando to attend an assistive technology exhibition where she discovered the award-winning UDL study tool Sonocent Audio Notetaker. The software provides an interactive workspace where users can capture, organise and communicate their information and ideas, as speech, text, and images - creating independence for students and professionals with disabilities.
The following case study comprises an interview conducted with Yishai in January 2015, 8 months after he began using the software to support his studies.
