There is one Assistive Technology Workstation in Randall Library located on the first floor in the Learning Commons. This station is available for any UNCW student, faculty or staff member wishing to use the equipment and no appointments are needed. The table is motorized for height adjustment.
The following equipment is available at the Assistive Technology Workstation:

ZoomText is a screen magnification software program that magnifies text from two to sixteen times in full screen and partial screen zoom windows. Please see the Learning Commons Help Desk for a copy of the user guide.
|This scanner is used in conjunction with the Kurzweil Reader (see below).|
Kurzweil 1000 multi-sensory approach to reading provides both visual and auditory feedback.
Kurzweil 1000 displays an on-screen version of any printed material. Students can read along, take notes, and highlight right on the computer screen. Language tools like a dictionary, thesaurus, and phonetic spelling tool provide additional support.
Kurzweil 3000 is also available. This software is used for reading, writing, and learning for students with dyslexia, attention deficit disorder, or other learning difficulties, including physical impairments or language learning needs.
There is a Telesensory Aladdin Classic video magnifier (4.5X to 25X). Please see the Learning Commons Help Desk for the user guide.
Utilizing the picture control selector, the Classic can display printed materials in high-contrast black text on a white background or white text on a black background. The white text on black or negative image is ideal for glare reduction. This system also features an extremely large depth of field for viewing three-dimensional objects and a smooth, non-glare reading table which permits reading heavy books.
