A end result of the mentioned issues there are instructions which might be performed within the subsequent years. One course is clear. The instruments needs to be more suitable and examine and improvement paintings could be prolonged to all teams of handicapped (even in the event that they are numerically now not so huge as for instancetheblindorvisuallyhandicappedpersons). Ontheothersideinthearea of social implications there's an expanding call for on social technology reports on total desktop use between disabled individuals. simply because resources are in precept lacking this present day approximately disabled folks paintings projects, learn during this ?eld needs to commence through attempting to survey this element. specific cognizance can be paid to the level and personality of laptop use one of the handicapped in paintings existence. there are many questions, which can be spoke back throughout the subsequent years for achieving the purpose of rehabilitation. ” Fifteen years later the ninth foreign convention on pcs aiding individuals with distinct wishes (Paris, 2004) o?ered a entire and deepened view on common awareness,special examine and person purposes conce- ing disabled humans and their participation in our society.

These questionnaires are very important, and the answers help the software development, but they are too general and usually concern the usage or outward appearance. In recent years many software were developed in Hungary too , , . Our goal was to develop not only educational software, but games too. There can be used easily without any informatics knowledge. 16 C. Sik Lányi et al. 2 The Software The first program is “Now I know already what its name is”. The main menu has eight topics.
Like in the Virtual Shop scenario the user obtains positive confirmation, praise for his correct solutions. Fig. 2. The Clothing scenario. 26 C. Sik Lányi and Á. Tilinger Besides that, there are several other features implemented with teaching nature at the suggestion of the teachers caring about autistic children. One of these is for example the motion of the head of the characters, which gets the child on focusing on the human face, what is essential in real life. 4 Investigation of Usability At present we are investigating the usability of the software.

Multimedia Programs for Children with Hearing Difficulties 19 slides, with the tale itself written at the bottom of the slide, and above the text there is a picture showing an episode from the tale. In the colouring submenu an episode becomes seen with a question. g. asking the child to point onto an object in the picture. If the child points with the cursor to the correct object the black and white part of the picture turns into colour, and a new question is seen under the picture (Fig.
