Four innovative keyboards for more efficient typing. Great for anyone looking for a different keyboard - and particularly for people with disabilities. Panther Writer offers four newly designed and highly innovative keyboards designed to improve access and efficiency for typing in many situations. The keyboards are particularly powerful for individuals with disabilities such as Autism, Cerebral Palsy, ALS, stroke and other conditions which affect motor control. Keyboards include - Basic Plus: a small variation on basic keyboard organization with features such as hold times, different alphabets, etc. - Tom's Keyboard: a powerful new layout that feels familiar, yet makes the keys you need most easier to hit - Mini Touch: a keyboard that's smaller, for people who have trouble moving their fingers a distance. - Vertical Fall: a new concept for people who have severe disabilities. Just drag your finger along the bottom of the iPad and the letters and symbols come to you! Here's what experts are saying about Panther Technology! Stephen Bennett, President & CEO, United Cerebral Palsy "What makes Panther special is that its founder, Richard Ellenson, comes at this from the perspective of a parent of a child with a disability. This isn¹t a just a tech company, but one created by a parent who knows first-hand how new ways of thinking and the advent of apps can open up the world for a child. The inaugural Panther products are designed to create a life without limits for children with disabilities, and UCP applauds Richard¹s vision.” Marc Sirkin, Vice President, Autism Speaks "Panther's apps are providing something novel, fresh and exciting. A fantastic platform for building skills and doing everyday tasks - with an interface that is innovative enough to include many people across the Autism Spectrum and intuitive enough for all of us to begin embracing it. In a very complex world, these apps are simplifying the path to increased potential and possibility." Karen Gorman, Assistive Technology Evaluation Coordinator D 75, NYC DOE "These apps are precisely the kind of solutions that work in a Universally Designed Learning environment. They provide support for those that need it and are easily adjusted up or down as skills develop. Most importantly, the learner can be the one to adjust the supports. Placing the student in the driver’s seat to adjust the presentation in a way they “can” interact with the materials is very empowering." Alan Brightman - Vice President, Global Accessibility, Yahoo! "Panther products are not just thoughtful and uniquely creative. They also reflect an expectation that learners will succeed in ways that may have seemed impossible before. It's rare that products show this kind of respect for its users." Dr. Caroline Musselwhite - Literacy Expert "This is truly a paradigm shift for access. Kids everywhere are going to have more opportunities than ever for literacy and math engagement - and success. And with the clean and elegant design features of the apps, everyone is going to want to embrace these." Karen Janowski, Assistive Technology Consultant, Newton, Massachusetts "If you think iPad Technology is amazing, wait until you see what you can do with Panther apps. Students with output or physical challenges finally have cool new options for success!"
