What IT Facilities are there for students with disabilities?

There are four dedicated PC rooms on campus for students with disabilities. Each has at least one electric height-adjustable desk, fully-adjustable monitor stands with new flat TFT screens, and is equipped with assistive technologies.

These are quiet study rooms, each equipped with two PCs, specialist equipment and software, including:

  • ZoomText magnification software
  • JAWS screen-reading software
  • Dragon Naturally Speaking voice recognition software

Students using these rooms can print to the designated printers in each room. 

To gain access to the dedicated PC rooms, you will need to go to the Disability and Well-being Service in PEL.3.02 to arrange access requirements. To exit the room press the green button which is found to the left hand side of the door.
