    disabled internet access 15th Jan 20 at 10:39 PM
    Hi, my husband's medication totally paralysed him 3 years ago. He now has limited upper limb movement. He really misses Facebook and being able to access the internet. Does anyone know of companies that may be able to help finding the right product? We have tried a few things but need specialist help. Our Occupational Therapists don't know where to go. Can you please help?

    This charity was very helpful a few years ago when I needed help with assistive technology for my severely disabled son:

    is a good start
    particularly https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/accessibility/


    I would be looking at speech to text stuff ..

    You say that your OT doesn't know where to go - I would change OT's - because they SHOULD know !
    I assume that your hubby doesn't work - if he does, bring in Access to Work - they are experts at such problems
