Technical Training

To help smoothly integrate assistive software into your workplace, we offer technical training to help employees excel in their role.

What is it?

At Ability Smart, we provide a range of assistive software, as well as expert bespoke training for both paid and free assistive software solutions. 

This encompasses speech-to-text software (such as Dragon Professional and TalkType), text-to-speech software (such as TextHelp Read and Write), and creative mind mapping and report writing software (such as Ideamapper Pro); amongst a wide range of other assistive software and equipment options. 

In order to gain the confidence to utilise these to the best of one’s abilities, we recommend technical training for these software packages. A thoughtfully created and tailored plan, tackling everything from the basics of the software to the more complex proficiencies, as well as exploring how to utilise this item within your own work scenario, enables the trainee to develop a core understanding of the product and build confidence to implement it going forwards. Proficiency in the use of the software will help to negate any work-based difficulties, and will aid the individual being able to focus on their strengths and bring these to the forefront. 

Also speak to us about our ‘Free Assistive Software Workshops’, aimed at those who are working on a budget, or who may wish to explore the exceptional free-to-use solutions currently out there. To increase awareness of the resources for assistance that are available, these seminars can also be given to a group of people.
