Techopedia explains Adaptive Software

There are people who cannot use computers normally because of their physical disabilities. Adaptive software makes it possible for such persons to enjoy the benefits of using a personal computer. Otherwise, they may not be able to do so for either work or recreation.

Some examples of adaptive software include:

  1. Narrator (within the Windows Accessibility features): This software can read aloud menu commands, dialog box options and more. Plus, it can announce events on screen and read typed characters.
  2. Text-to-Speech Adaptive Software (also known as speech recognition software): This software can type spoken words into a computer.
