Training on Accessible Features of Computing and Information Systems
Technology assessment and training are available at Accessibility Resources through a partnership with the Center for Assistive Technology (CAT) . CAT staff person Tina Oddo is on North Campus one day per week to work with students. Tina can evaluate studentsí assistive technology needs and make recommendations for hard and software that may be helpful. Examples of programs students could receive training for include JAWS (screen reader), Zoomtext (magnifier/screen reader), and Dragon Naturally Speaking (speech recognition), among others.
Accessibility Resources can also provide training for Read & Write Gold 9, a literacy software product from Texthelp Systems that can assist students with both reading and writing. To set up training for Read & Write Gold 9, please contact Accessibility Resources at 645-2608.
