Assistive technology (AT) refers to devices, equipment, and software that are used to assist people with disabilities to perform tasks more easily or independently. Students registered with Student Accessibility Services (SAS) can meet with the Assistive Technology Specialist to discuss what types of AT they may be eligible for and receive training on how to utilize such products to access their curriculum.  We provide support with text-to-speech and speech-to-text software, screen readers, note-taking solutions, visual magnifiers, assistive listening systems, and apps for academic access. SAS can help students determine what tools will best meet their needs.
