I'm sure this was unintended, but it turns out that the iPad has been pretty darn useful to folks with disabilities. I've read several articles (and know one of the people in the article) where they've developed apps, downloaded apps, etc, for electronic talking programs for those who cannot speak. The coolest thing is that a "talker" or augmentative communication device costs around $15,000 (if insurance approves it and pays for it). An ipad? WAY CHEAPER. And obviously more obtainable.
