Visual Disabilities: Assistive Technology
There are various types of assistive technology available for people with visual disabilities. For computer use, screen magnifiers and screen readers are of great use, and voice recognition technology can be helpful as well. Haverford College has two computers set up with assistive technology (screen readers, voice recognition technology, and headsets): one in Magill Library (available by reservation) and the other in the computer lab in Hilles, H204.
Assistive technology is also for aid in the use of printed material. Enlarged print books, books on tape, braille books, and others can also be made available for students with visual disabilities. See the links page for links to sites containing additional information.
