<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>
<p>11/9/12: added Teaching and Learning category; added that to this service ~ MM</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.
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 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 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.
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 for needs of 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.
Service Level Description:
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. Braille translation is performed with automated translation software. No editing of content will be performed by ATC without prior arrangement.
