Technology & Accessibility

The Disability Service provides helpful information about how you can make use of technology and adapt it to your study or teaching needs. Assistive Technology is defined as "any use of technology that helps you perform a task more easily". Assistive Technology is a broad field, ranging from the use of very simple technology such as your mobile phone or e-mail, to very complex technology, such as use of voice recognition software or technology that will read aloud information from your computer screen.
