How can we make technology easier to use for people with disabilities by Karissa Phillips

Technology is amazing these days! But for some people who have disabilities It can sometimes be a challenge to use. Take me for example it’s hard for me to use small things however does that stop me from doing what most teenagers love to do Nope! I put my mind to it and I Txt I’m on the social media sites just like all of my peers, I also can hold a camera and take pictures of things I enjoy! You can do anything you put your mind too!! Don’t let your disability define you!! However I wish they would come out with a easier way for me to type and login to my accounts when I try to Type my password in if I shake and hit a wrong key on accident it gives me trouble logging in.

Your’s truly,
Karissa Phillips
