Meet Travis

Travis at his work stationTravis is a business owner and entrepreneur who is working toward building a public relations and marketing company in the Peoria area. He recently completed an evaluation with IATP to help identify the assistive technology options and related training that will help support his work and productivity. Travis was born with muscular dystrophy and has used a power wheelchair most of his life. He has difficulty using his hands which limits his keyboarding speed and ability to use a computer mouse. He worked with an assistive technology specialist to install voice recognition software on his computer and learn all the features of the program. He can now navigate his computer with his voice, dictate content instead of keyboarding, and create shortcuts to make some tasks less repetitive. Travis can now work more quickly, particularly when writing copy for advertising and websites. He is also using an external microphone which allows him to just roll up to his computer and begin working with no assistance.
