Steemhunter Assistive Technology Digest - October 07, 2018
<html>
<p>compiled by @holovision for @assistive.tech</p>
<p>Following are some recent items found by steemhunters that potentially deal with assistive technology devices or services. These are not endorsements. This is presented in this digest to show what is available and possible for people with disabilities. Also, by starting a regular digest it might hopefully encourage more steemhunters to keep the category of assistive technology devices and services in mind as they continue to hunt for more items in the future.</p>
