Adaptive Technology has been defined as the category of products made to provide alternative access for users with disabilities. Technology in our Adaptive Technology (AT) lab provides users who have vision impairments, physical impairments, learning disabilities and other impairments access to information in ways that are more congruous to their needs.
The Office of Accessibility has the following forms of adaptive technology software available in the office lab:
Dragon Naturally Speaking 10: Voice recognition program that "types" what you speak.
Inspiration: Graphical outliner/organizer that combines objected-oriented drawing with electronic outlining.
JAWS: Screen reader.
Kurzweil 3000: Document reader and study aid.
Read-n-Write: Word Processing Program that helps with written language.
ZoomText Xtra Level 2: Magnification and screen reading software.
Jaws, Kurzweil, Zoomtext, Inspiration and Dragon are available at various locations on campus. Consult the list at the link below to learn what is available at each location. Make sure to take a set of headphones with you when you use these computers.
