All Sides with Ann Fisher

Tech Tuesday: Assistive Tech, Eco Cars and Gadgets

11:00

Most of us spend hours typing on a keyboard everyday--we type to friends, for business, and to play computer games. But for those with limited dexterity, these tasks are not so simple. On this hour of All Sides, we'll learn about some innovative new keyboards built for typists with disabilities. We'll also hear about OSU's successful EcoCAR project, and get the skinny on the Xbox, Samsung Galaxy and more.
