Cleveland State University has a wide variety of assistive technology for use by our students in classrooms, testing rooms, computer labs, and just about anywhere else on campus. We make these products available to our students because this technology enables students with disabilities to work independently and complete work that is comparable to their peers.
The office of Disability Services manages the Adaptive technology Lab that is only available for students with disabilities or students studying assistive technology. This location allows us to offer excellent services to our students that need assistance focused on assistive technology.
Disability Services also has equipment for loan on campus that can be used in classrooms and study areas. This equipment includes laptops with the same software as the AT Lab, video magnifiers, a Braille display, Personal FM Systems, portable scanners, and other auxiliary aids.
The Office of Disability Services maintains adaptive software in its testing rooms. We have 4 computers in our testing rooms with JAWS, ZoomText, Kurzweil 3000, Read & Write Gold, Inspiration, Victor Reader Soft, WordTalk, and many others. Dragon Naturally Speaking is installed in two of our testing rooms. We also have adjustable desks and Video Magnifiers in all testing rooms.
We also have equipment that can be borrowed for the duration of a semester. For students who receive RFB&D books we have a limited supply of Victor Vibe, Wave, Stream, and Classmate Players. Students can borrow Personal FM systems to enable them to hear their professors and classmates better. We also have a couple of laptops that can be borrowed for use in student field experiences.
If you have any questions about assistive technology on campus please contact Jeffrey Dell the AT specialist at (216) 687-2015 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
