Session

Personal experience

Summary

This year I would like to talk about how  the Lightwriter has moved on over the last 11 years and what it might be like in years to come. It would be good to access new things like internet banking, MSN, and web cams using Lightwriters for people who find it hard to speak.

The main part of my talk is about the new SL40 and how it has changed the way I communicate. Also, if I am out by myself and something goes wrong I can text someone to let them know something is up with me. I will explain what the SL40 can do to benefit people’s lives at home or school or work.
