Math Pad: http://www.infouse.com/mathpad_public/
Math Pad enables students to do math scratch work on the computer. It also helps students who cannot
otherwise line up the math problems (because of perceptual issues) do it on the computer. Students with mild physical issues use Math Pad as a way to help conceptualize borrowing and carrying. The fact that it can be seen on the computer(with the highlighting functions for where to regroup) helps.
Math Pad can also be used as a teacher tool. Type in the math problems and then print them out as an accessible worksheet. For some students that has been helpful, especially for visually impaired students. The workshee can be type out and then enlarged on the photcopier.
Math Pad Plus is the fractions and decimals program.
With this version, Word problems can be typed and they will be read aloud. It also enables higher level math to be done on the computer. It enables fraction manipulatives to be used on the comptuer. This is helpful for kids who cannot do that with real manipulatives.

ZoomText 9.0: http://www.aisquared.com/index.cfm
This is a magnification /screen reading program. Currently you can download the beta version of 9.0 for free in order to give it a try. It has a reading part called the Application Reader Tool. The new ZoomText uses the Neospeech voices. The Application Reader Tool will underline the words as they are read. Underlining helps to perceptually bring out the word as well as the auditory presentation of the word. This saves fatigue to the eyes. You can set the magnification to zero and still use the Application Reader Tool. You can also take a tour of ZoomText at this site.

The Reconstructors Solve Medical Mysteries: http://medmyst.rice.edu/
Built and designed with funding from the National Institutes of Health, "MedMyst" is a new online game from researchers at Rice University that invites students to solve mysteries about infectious diseases. While playing the roles of scientist, historian, and detective, students learn how infectious diseases are spread as they join a team of elite medical minds to determine the cause of a futuristic plague that has left millions dead and is threatening the collapse of civilization. In all, there are three missions for students to explore. For teachers, the site contains a resource page that includes printable worksheets for use in the classroom, as well as a number of useful links for building lesson plans around infectious diseases and other health-related topics.
