Local authority support worker feels the benefits of assistive technology
Senior Support Time Recovery Worker, Aruna Nagar works for Leicester City Council and had been struggling to type due to manual dexterity issues. Aruna says,
“Holding a position as a manager in social care is most rewarding. I value and rely heavily upon my team. It is very important to me to be able to communicate with my team as well as undertake other common admin tasks. I have been struggling more recently to keep up with administration duties due to problems with my finger dexterity. Falling behind in my work, causes anxiety and seems to worsen my condition.
“My employer provided me with some software and training to help me to cope with this – Dragon Professional and Claro Read Professional.
“I’m now happy to say that after my training sessions with Hands-Free Trainer Graham Wright, I am much more able to keep up with my administration. I can now dictate my words through Dragon as quick as some of the quickest typists in my team! To be able to hear my work and emails read back to me is also extremely useful and lessens fatigue even more.
“I find that the varied number of features and tasks that can be achieved with this new software is wonderful. I feel that I am now more able and comfortable, through training with Hands-Free, to use my computer in the way I see others doing it!
Thank you, Graham, and Hands-Free”
