ACORN tablets – Accessible technology in your hands from dlr Libraries

General News

Since the onset of the pandemic, we have all had to rely a lot more on technology to stay connected. But those without access to devices, or those who do not have the skills to use them, can find themselves increasingly excluded from society.

The new ACORN tablet project from the dlr Digital Inclusion working group hopes to help bridge the digital divide by providing age-friendly, easy-to-use technology. The ACORN tablet is designed with the older person in mind, and the principle behind the tablet is to provide more accessible options for those with little or no computer or smart device experience. The home screen is clear and easy to navigate .
