  1. This is a great addition to the Apple family and more importantly the AT family. I would love to see the price a little bit lower though. Taking into consideration AAC and Vision apps and the devices they replace, it's amazing!

    1. I aggree, the iPad mini is another great AT tool. The lower price makes it compeling ecspecial considering that it comes with VoiceOver, speak selection, guided access, and all of the great AT apps.
