Assistive Technology in the Library

Do you know we have technology in the library that can help organise your ideas for an assignment, can read passages from books for you, and can type text that you speak? This is Assistive Technology.

All our library PCs are networked with Read & Write Gold, a software package that helps people with dyslexia, but may help other students too. Next time you are in the library, log on, click on the icon, and read the online information on this. Alternatively, I will be able to help you with it. We also have a Mind Manager CD-Rom at the library desk. This uses visual aids to help you organise ideas and plan assignments. You can borrow this and load it onto your home PC or laptop.
