The conclusion of the case study is that students with disabilities need to know what technology solution suits them better than others. In addition, the site demonstrates the challenges that students with disabilities might encounter, and how to overcome these challenges.

Just like it was proven that technology could have a positive effect on the learning process, I am sure it would have the same effect on the learning of students with disabilities; it could at least assist the disabled in carrying out some of the activities that are difficult due to the disability. I liked the example they used in the website; a person who cannot speak with his or her own voice can use a computer-based speech synthesizer to "speak" for him or her.

http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=227258 Resources that provide solutions for problems are very important for researchers. the mentioned site is a good example for problems/solutions resources, especially when it is about accessibility. It is an eye opener about special needs for special people.
