Assistive Technology Services

What Is Assistive Technology?

Assistive Technology is hardware or software designed to make it possible for a person to access computer technology who otherwise would not be able to or who would be severely limited.  For example, a person with repetitive strain injury and wrist pain who finds a standard keyboard and mouse inaccessible would choose assistive technology--in this example, speech recognition software.

How do I Get It?

Most computer classrooms and labs have accessibility features, including large monitors and ZoomText. Some classrooms and labs have adjustable workstations. If you need a specific assistive technology accommodation for a course, please contact ASC at 479-6379 to make a request.

Where Is It?

ASC Lab, Room 1072

Phone: (831) 479-5068
During Summer sessions or unscheduled hours, contact Alternate Media Specialist at 477-5638 or ASC at 479-6379.

Lab Hours

The Assistive Technology Lab is located in Room 1072 in The Hub, above and behind Swenson Library.

Supported Lab hours (where a student assistant is present to assist students) change each semester: however, generally speaking, in Fall and Spring Semesters we staff both morning and afternoon hours. Please call the lab for more details.
