Active Projects


A toolkit for creative exploration and experimenting with software.

SwitchBoard focuses on cultivating mutual, consensual, and trusting relationships: between technologies, as well as within the communities which use them.

More information is coming. We run on limited spoons, so we appreciate your patience!

SwitchBoard is free, unlicensed software. The SwitchBoard source code is freely available.

Accessible-First Document Format

This is a work in progress draft for a digital document technology that prioritizes accessibility first and foremost.

The goal of this research is to create a way for knowledge and information to be stored in digital formats without excluding anyone due to unmet access needs.

In other words, we want to make a system where a single document can be equally useful when presented visually, read aloud (such as via screen reader software), presented using tactile writing systems like Braille, or any number of other avenues that have yet to be imagined.

Please be aware that this project is still very much in the conceptual stages.

We've chosen to publish the Current AFD Format Specification Draft in the spirit of collaboration, and welcome feedback and suggestions on this initiative.

We also have a free, unlicensed prototype editor available as part of the SpoonDocs project. The SpoonDocs source code is freely available.


A fully-customizable, text-to-speech (TTS) and Augmentative/Alternative Communication (AAC) app for Android.

SpoonSay is currently in the prototype phase and not ready for general use.
