Talking Photo Album

Assistive Technology of the Month

April: Talking Photo Album

Talking Photo AlbumWe are featuring a different Assistive Technology device each month. This month we are highlighting a talking photo album.

With the talking photo album you can record an 18 second personalized message for each page. It allows you to tell the stories and share the meanings behind each photo. You create your own recording of the people and places in your photos.

The talking photo album can be used for more than just just photos. You could create an audible cookbook, personalized story, daily schedule and more!

The talking photo album is on display in our St. Joseph office. If you have questions about it, you can contact Karen in our Kalamazoo Office (269-345-1516 x115) or Joanne in our St. Joseph office (269-982-7761)

Assistive Technology Funding Assistance is Available

The Assistive Technology Loan Fund (ATLF) is available to help people pay for tools for independence. The ATLF is a low interest loan available to people with disabilities and their family members to help purchase items like wheelchair-accessible vehicles, hearing aids, mobility devices, communication devices, or adapted recreation equipment. The ATLF can also pay for home modifications, including ramps, to make your home more accessible. Contact Lewis in our Kalamazoo office (269-345-1516 x107) for more information.
