What assistive software is available?
The University provides a range of assistive software. Some programs are delivered via the University network, while others are installed on specific PCs only. Below is a list of licensed assistive software available to registered members of the University:
- TextHELP Read & Write
Please see Accessing CiCS Services for details of other, free assistive software which is available via the University network.
Can I book to use the software?
Some PCs can be booked in advance by students via the myPC Bookings link on the Home tab in MUSE. Use this for Inspiration and TextHELP Read & Write.
JAWS and ZoomText can be booked by both students and staff in person in the Information Commons.
Can I borrow headphones?
If you are using screen reading software, please remember to always use headphones to avoid disturbing other Library customers. If you do not have your own with you, please ask a member of Information Commons or Library staff to borrow a pair.
You will be asked to leave your UCard as a deposit (Information Commons) or issued to your Library account (St George's Library and Western Bank Library).
