[Athen] Question Regarding Servers

We have a central server at our University so that adaptive software can
be deployed in all of the labs. Many of the programs are on a Key
Server and usage is metered so students have access up to the number of
licenses that we have at any given time. We also have a dedicated lab
that offers more support and more hardware solutions. There is
discussion about moving more away from the dedicated lab and integrating
equipment into the main labs, but the individual support that students
receive in the dedicated lab would lost.

Subject: [Athen] Question Regarding Servers

Hello Everyone,

Although I'm unable to attend the CSUN Conference this year -budget
constraints- my role as AT Coordinator and ATI sub-committee
member(Procurement)has brought questions that I need help to answer.

I've been asked to find out the status of other Services for Students
with Disabilities offices/programs if other offices maintain Servers for
assistive software exclusive in students with disabilities Lab's or if
AT programs can be accessed from any lab on your campus?

At Fresno State, I'm responsible(up to now)for
purchase,installation,maintenance all AT equipment and softwares for
the SSD student lab (13 workstations),for e-text conversion practices
and policies and e-text production.

To summarize, are the AT programs, i.e., JAWS, Kurzweil 3000, DragonNS,
etc. individually installed for access by students with disabilities
(Lab/Resource Center) or are the programs residing on a university
server for accessibility to open labs?

Thank you so much for your input.
