Discussion by Disabilities
Deaf and Hard of Hearing
A person who is hard of hearing may have difficulty understanding the audio in a multimedia presentation. The ability to pause, rewind, and repeat multimedia content makes it easier to go back and review content to make sure that everything has been heard and understood.
Cognitive, Language, Learning Disabilities & Low Literacy
A person with a cognitive disability or language problem may have difficulty understanding multimedia content, and could benefit from the ability to pause, rewind, and repeat content.
These products are not necessarily endorsed by RtF, but represent the range of available options.
