Disability Practice in the Spotlight

Sonocent Audio Notetaker @ the University of Adelaide and Griffith University  Much of higher education relies on transcribing and transforming audio information – actions that can be difficult for some students with disability. Sonocent Audio Notetaker is a software tool and app that can capture audio, text and slides and transform them into a format that suits the user, allowing students with disability to take information from their lecture theatres and tutorials and use it in the way that best allows them to learn. In this article we will hear from two disability practitioners about how Sonocent has transformed learning for their students, as well as assistive technology consultant Jim Sprialis about how the program works.  Read more about Sonocet Audio Notetaker
