Adaptable Resources for Technology Users

HSLS Technology Services offers a variety of equipment and software that provide better accessibility for HSLS users. Our goal is to provide resources to enhance technology use in a self-service model, where people who want to use these resources have easy access and those who don’t are not hindered by them.

Three computer stations have designated accessible hardware. All public computers on the main floor and upper floor of the library have an Accessible Resources folder on the desktop. The folder contains shortcuts to software and websites that provide assistance.

Accessibility resources target the following needs:

Low vision/vision enhancement:

Motor function aids:

Wheelchair accommodations:

Hearing enhancement:

Reading comprehension:

Learning disability and attention disorders:

The Accessible Technology Services page provides information on available resources as well as a request form to submit ideas for further software or equipment purchases.
