Sorry, No tax breaks unless purchased for direct business purposes.  It's
not important enough.  Not only that, since people with disabilities are all
employed, they can all afford the technology.  After all,  why should rich
people have any tax breaks!

Thank you for your thanks, Robert -- but the
technological discussions are no problem. As long as
people put the correct subject heading in, we can
delete those posts without reading them. However,
because sometimes people don't indicate when they
change the subject, I tend to read them anyway and
find them interesting. I'm amazed at the technology
available today, sad and horrified at the cost, (are
these aids tax-deductible at least?), and learn things
that I find interesting, like about the different
voices, that people can listen to books as they scan
on Kurzweill, and that wonderful cane or wand that
Shelley was telling us about a while back -- and the
device that can tell people what color clothes are. I
could use one of these to tell me whether what I put
on was black or navy blue. (smile)
