Cloud-based, campus-wide, lecture capture and presentation recording software
Panopto is replacing Tegrity and is a cloud-based, lecture capture presentation recording service that allows for easy recording and reviewing of courses, lectures and presentations. Panopto is designed to make the lecture capture process easy. Recordings in Panopto are viewable on most browsers and mobile devices. We recommend creating all new recordings in Panopto as Tegrity will be retired on January 31, 2015.

<p>7/27/12 Greg is making some style edits to the SharePoint entry today. Mary added this entry to Drupal to prepare for content. Tammy will add to Drupal once Greg is finished. I added "Tegrity" as the URL path name, but should it be LectureCapture instead?</p>

Computer hardware and software for people with disabilities
Access technology allows people with disabilities to use computer hardware and software. Examples include text-to-speech, keyboard/mouse alternatives, speech-to-text, refreshable and embossed Braille, writing tools, and more. The Access Technology Center (ATC) on the UW Seattle Campus provides a venue for using, testing, and evaluating this technology. Students, faculty, or staff drop in, call, or send email for information on accommodations for access to hardware, software, or online resources.
<p>This service was previously named Access Technology Lab (ATL); change effective June 28, 2010 (upon move to new location).</p>

Braille and alternative text production for students with print disabilities
The Access Technology Center (ATC) can emboss Word or HTML files for campus members who need conversion of academic or other UW-related material in Braille format. Tactile graphics production is provided in some circumstances. We provide equipment and expertise in assisting production of accessible academic materials for UW students and work closely with the Disability Resources for Students (DRS) office in providing this alternative text service.
Immediate (automated) response to email requests. Most materials available for pickup within two (2) business days. Projects that are extremely long (over 200 Braille pages) or containing graphics to be created in tactile format will take longer.
This service is included in the Technology Recharge Fee. There is no charge for UW affiliates; cost-recovery charges may apply for work performed for other institutions.
This service is primarily used by Disability Resources for Students (DRS) and academic departments needing accessible materials for their students. The service is also used by Disability Services Office (DSO) as requested and as needed for faculty, staff, and UW visitors. This service is primarily available to UW affiliates; however, occasional work is performed for other Washington state higher education institutions on a fee basis.
