Computers connect people and enable them to share thoughts and ideas. They provide access to information and make it possible to carry out professional duties. However, using a computer is very difficult for people with severely shortened or malformed arms. Through the Babylon project, we provide funding for the purchase of a personal computer and use of the speech recognition solution Dragon. This software makes it possible to operate the computer by voice. To make it easier to get started, we also provide funding for participation in a four-day seminar that is specially designed for the needs of Thalidomide-affected people, taught by a trainer who is also a Thalidomide-affected person. A total of 280 affected people have already taken advantage of this offer. There is also an option of a two-day follow-up training to refresh the material covered in the seminar.

How it works:
- Organisation, logistics and implementation are all handled by the Paradicta company.
- Participation is confidential. We are only provided with the number of seminar participants, not their names.
