ADA Accessible Desktop Computers

There are seven workstations in the library:

  • 1st Floor – one in the computer area near the Research Assistance Desk, and one in PL-111.
  • Floors 2-5 – one on each floor near the elevators plus one additional workstation in our classroom, PL-2005.

Each station provides the CSUSB Assistive Technology & Accessibility Center’s (ATAC) supported assistive technology software, which includes on-screen magnification, screen reading, voice recognition, optical character recognition (OCR), and literacy software.

In addition, there are two cameras at each station: one for video magnification and a scanning camera for OCR. Other hardware includes a fully ergonomically adjustable split keyboard, a high contrast keyboard, and an electrically adjustable desk and ergonomic chair.

One feature of these stations that students appreciate is the ability to quickly scan and create audio versions of their textbooks, which can make long commutes more productive and provides multiple modalities for information retention.

For training in using these workstations, please contact Christine Fundell, Accessibility Specialist, 909-537-4356, or Leon McNaught, Accessible Technology Initiative Coordinator, 909-537-3474, or go to ATAC’s assistive technology lab in PL-1109 (in the Wedge part of the Pfau Library building).
