*Francis Feoko, a C5 quadriplegic, and sophomore in the Bay Area shares with Assistive Technology Blog how he takes care of home and school work - Notes Plus, Notability, Splashtop, Read&Write Gold*
>Francis uses different apps for different classes - For his math class, he uses Notes Plus, an app that gives him lots of flexibility in terms of drawing graphs and using various shapes and symbols for his math homework
Since he is C5 quadriplegic, he cannot use his fingers, so he uses his pinky finger's knuckle to write his equations
(he has used a stylus in the past but has gotten used to his pinky for writing now) Once done, he likes to email his homework to himself so he could review, reorganize and make changes as needed, before submitting it to his teacher
Francis used to have a notetaker who would take notes for him in class, but now he just uses the iPad to take notes himself.
Notability is another app he uses for "visual learning"
Notability lets Francis copy and paste images from the internet, so if he is learning something and wants to use pictures to help him understand the concepts better, he uses Notability that lets him add and organize pictures into his notes to make them more visual.
Since he is a computer science student, Francis has to write code for his C++ or HTML homework
In order to do that, he remote logs in to his laptop computer through his iPad using an app called Splashtop
Sometimes it is not easy for him to take his laptop to school, but thanks to Splashtop, he can access his laptop even when he doesn't physically have it with him
Francis also uses Read&Write Gold to have his notes read back to him, although later in the conversation he suggests that many iOS apps now have the ability to read notes back to the user
