Adults and children with disabilities share their stories of how using modern technologies have changed their lives. Among them are Susanna who is beginning her college career, 38 year old Floyd Stewart who was paralyzed in mid-life while raising four children, and high school student Latoya Nesmith who dreams of becoming a translator at the U.N. Fifteen years after passage of the ADA. Freedom Machines is a reflection on the status of life of America's largest minority group: 55 million people with disabilities.
