Disability Technology Services
Information for Disabled Students and Students with Dyslexia
Our library and IT support service aims to provide the widest possible access to learning and teaching resources and to remove any barriers resulting from disability, illness or other specific need. These web pages provide a gateway to information about the services and facilities we provide to maximise accessibility.
The Disability Technology Service is based in the Learning Resources Centre (LRC) and it offers support and advice about enabling software and assistive technologies to disabled students and students with dyslexia. The Disability Resource Room at Treforest (L215) has computers equipped with Assistive Software (PDF). CCTV magnification equipment is also available for visually impaired students.
Initially you should make an appointment to see a Disability Advisor by contacting Student Services. Your Disability Advisor will arrange a meeting with Barbara Jackson, our Disability Technology Coordinator to discuss any support you may need with enabling technologies such as text enlargement, recording devices or text-to-speech software. Further appointments with Barbara can be arranged via our Information and Service Desk staff.
Laptops with assistive software are available for loan, as well as a number of hand-held digital recorders.
We are also able to convert printed materials into accessible formats such as Braille, large print, audio or electronic file. This service is mainly available for blind or visually impaired students.
