University of Connecticut Assistive Technology Oral History Project


How I got my start in Assistive Technology?
On January 8th, 2007, Joy Zabala, Penny Reed, and Gayl Bowser posed this question to everyone on the QIAT list: "How did you get your start in Assistive Technology?" This question resulted in the outpouring of testimonials that Gayl and Chauncy Rucker have assembled here (PDF file). Apple Computer, Dolores, and Bud Hagen were often mentioned, including other heros as well. It's a very positive history! We thank Joy Zabala, Penny Reed, and our Gayl Bowser for coming up with the question and the QIAT list for providing a place where such conversations can flourish.
