For each free AT software, the available application is documented and fields of information are filled: application name, developer, version, AT category(ies), related disability(ies), description, operating system(s), installation procedure, settings and hints, download links, and a screenshot. Three ways to browse the online free AT software inventory's applications are Disability, Type of AT software, or by showing all applications in an alphabetical order.

Some of this website really is "Greek to me"! There is a link to English resources, however, if you go deeper to search the links, some are still showing up in Greek and not English. They have a similar rating system for the specific items in the database, but I found spelling error right off the bat. They ask for name and also have a spam control:

Houses are not cheap and not every person is able to buy it. Nevertheless, <a href="">loan</a> was created to help different people in such kind of cases.

It took me several years of struggling with the heavy door to my building, sometimes having to wait until a person stronger came along, to realize that the door was an accessibility problem, not only for me, but for others as well. And I did not notice, until one of my students pointed it out, that the lack of signs that could be read from a distance at my university forced people with mobility impairments to expend a lot of energy unnecessarily, searching for rooms and offices. Although I have encountered this difficulty myself on days when walking was exhausting to me, I interpreted it, automatically, as a problem arising from my illness (as I did with the door), rather than as a problem arising from the built environment having been created for too narrow a range of people and situations.
