Disabilities affecting learning may qualify a student to access Assistive Technology. Students may be required to provide historical and/or recent documentation supporting the use of assistive technology due to a diagnosis that substantially affects learning and complete an Intake Interview with the AccessAbility Services (AAS) coordinator. Assistive Technology can be checked out from AAS through the Library.
Accessible Technology for Students
- Keyboard constructed in a V shape, to allow right and left hands to type at a slight angle more natural to the human form.
- Large Print Keyboard gives quick access to ZoomText 10.1. The ZoomText keyboard is located in the Library's Speech room.
- The personal FM system consists of a transmitter microphone used by the speaker (such as the teacher in the classroom, or the speaker at a lecture) and a receiver used by the student, the listener. The receiver transmits the sound to the student's ears or, if you wear a hearing aid, directly to the hearing aid.

- High-quality personal assistive listening device that amplifies sounds near you while reducing background noise.
- Portable magnifier
- Portable spell checker
- Ergonomically designed featuring a scrolling wheel
- Pen records audio and what is written then links the audio recording with notes written. AAS has a limited number of pens.
