Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing, or other special needs!

Q-files is a web-based collection of over 2,000 articles written for children between the ages of 7 and 13.  The site’s articles cover many subjects, including science, math, history, and general interest.  It forms an “engaging, accurate, and good-value” web-based encyclopedia with all of its content verified by experts in the field.

Wikipedia is a well-known site, but unfortunately, it is not always accurate.  Q-files distinguishes itself from other online information by having named experts verify the content for accuracy.  It is because of this quality assurance that the content of Q-files is safer and more reliable than that of other online resources.

Other features include:

  • Safe, easy-to-use website for children ages 7-13
  • Authoritative, comprehensive, in-depth
  • Written, designed, and verified by experts
  • 2,500+ pages, 100+ quizzes, 15,000+ images
