The Library has an assistive technology workstation, which provides the following software applications for students with disabilities:

ZoomText: Allows a student to increase the magnification of a website on the computer and has voice read-back.

JAWS: Allows the student to listen to a voice that describes each word on the screen to help the student navigate a display page, text and the web.

Kurzweil: Allows a student to load text that they have to a digital copy that will read it back to them one word at a time.

 

For assistance with this workstation, please visit the Research Help desk.
