Other Services

Specialist Equipment

The I.T. Centre has specialist I.T. equipment in order to assist our disabled learners. We have a SMART board installed that allows those learners with impaired motor functions, interact with not only others, but the tutor as well. This equipment also allows those with a visual impairment to see images more clearly as they can be magnified to a much larger extent than on a normal monitor. We also provide a large QWERTY keyboard for those who have a visual impairment, a rollerball which assists learners who have difficult controlling a mouse, and SuperNova software which has a speech recognition package installed to enable learners to direct their PC's using voice control rather than the keyboard itself. All of these items allow us to offer a wide range of learning to the whole community, ensuring that we reach those learners who otherwise would not be able to have the opportunity to learn and some of the organisations that have used these specialist tools are Mencap Haswell, and the Stroke Association.
