What is Adaptive Software?
Adaptive software is specialized software for disabled users. This software usually runs on special hardware. This term is also known as assistive software.
There are people who cannot use computers normally because of their physical disabilities. Adaptive software enables such individuals to take advantage of a personal computer. Otherwise, they may not be able to do either work or leisure.
Some examples of adaptive software are:
1. Speaker (within Windows Accessibility functions): This software can read loud menu commands, dialog box options, and more. It can also announce events on the screen and read typed characters.
2. Adaptive text-to-speech software (also known as speech recognition software): This software can input spoken words into a computer.
