Assistive technology queries

What assistive technologies and equipment can I access?

There are various assistive technologies spread across the University to help you with your studies. Every computer in the Library and Computing Service area has TextHelp and MindView installed. These are software programmes that can be put on computers anywhere on campus on request.

TextHelp is a language programme that is especially useful for dyslexic students.

MindView is a mind mapping tool and is really good for essay and revision planning.

We also offer a wide range of other equipment across the campus including ergonomic furniture, deaf alerters, ergonomic keyboards and mice and a Braille embosser. Disability Services operates a loan of equipment service including laptops and digital recorders which are available for you to borrow. Please get in touch if you would like more information about this.
