Assistive Technologies Room

Services Overview
The library provides assistive technologies in a quiet study room setting for those with special visual needs.

Available in room POY 136, several technologies are available to assist users with accessing library materials. An mechanically adjustable worktable can accommodate a range of heights for easy wheelchair access; a Telesensory Aladdin Classic Voyager XL CCD video magnification unit can magnify any material up to 25X. A computer with dual large screen 19″ monitors has been equipped in the room, which can be used in tandem for screen magnification and text to speech function. Software offerings include JAWS, Dragon Speaking Naturally, Windows Magnifier, ZoomText, and Read & Write Gold. Large microphone, keyboard, and adjustable chairs also allow a range of uses for the room.

Students should work with Student Disability Services regarding training to use the equipment. Contact the Circulation Desk for access to room POY 136. Use of the room is normally on a first-come, first-served basis but Student Disability Services may reserve the room under special circumstances at the circulation desk. More information can be found on the ADA Web page.
