ZAC Browser (Zone for Autistic Children) is a browser especially developed for Autistic Children by John LeSieur together with his company People CD Inc.
John has a 6 year old Autistic Grandson who had difficulty using a normal browser and acted out aggressively against the PC.
So they developed a browser that is walled off to protect the user and disables many of the “extra” tools and buttons and menus not needed by children to leave the autistic user with far fewer choices so that they are not over powered as well as easy to use large buttons. This new browser was so effective with it’s target user, 6 year old Zachary, that is is now freely available.
Autism covers a large area from one extreme to another, so some forms of Autism may be little effected by this browser, however it is hoped that ZAC Browser will cover enough of a large general profile that it will be of use to most Autistic children.lsw
