Communication

Communication disabilities affect or limit speech and/or hearing resulting in a disruption to the communication process. Communication disabilities include stuttering, voice disorders, and articulation disorders. Below are a number of assistive technologies that CAP has received a high number of requests for, therefore resulting in CAP's ability to provide them to our customers as appropriate accommodation solutions for people with this disability.

Deaf-to-Hearing Communication (1)

CAP can provide products and software that allow hearing individuals to communicate efficiently with individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing.  Depending on the job of the individual, there are options available to assist in face to face communication.


Speech Recognition (1)

Speech recognition software assists people with more severe dexterity disabilities (cerebral palsy, prosthesis, polio, quadriplegia, severe carpal tunnel, etc.), by allowing users to speak words rather than type.  The user can also use voice commands in place of a mouse or other pointing device.
