Adaptive technology resources available on campus
Adaptive technology resources are available in various venues throughout the campus computing environment.
Windows computers in the university computing labs and K-State InfoCommons have this accessibility software:
- Magnifier — Screen-display utility for people who are visually impaired
- On-Screen Keyboard — Virtual keyboard for people who are mobility-impaired
- ZoomText — Screen magnifier for people who are visually impaired
Macs in the labs and InfoCommons have the adaptive technology that comes preinstalled by default.
A Closed Circuit Television, or CCTV, Print Magnification System is near the Media Development Center in 213 Hale Library. This video-magnification system allows zooming in on print and other materials placed on the desktop platform, with images displayed on the monitor above.
Large-screen monitors — both Mac and PC — are in the Media Development Center and also available in the K-State InfoCommons as portable collaboration stations for group use.
Large-format scanners are in the Media Development Center for all K-Staters to use.
Dragon Naturally Speaking software for converting speech to text is available on a Dell laptop in the Information Technology Assistance Center's equipment checkout service in 214 Hale Library, 785-532-4918, firstname.lastname@example.org.
