Temple also has AT (JAWS, Read and Write Gold, and ZoomText) as part of the general image for PCs. Kurzweil 3000 and Dragon Naturally Speaking for select machines (Kurzweil for machines with scanners, DNS on select laptops so students can use it without having everyone in the lab hear what they're doing.) Our computer lab guidelines (including what software should be installed) are available at: http://accessibility.temple.edu/policies-guidelines/standards-and-guidelines/computer-lab-accessibility-guidelines

Hi, Bryon. Northern Arizona University provides AT as part of the general student image, so it's available on any computer that a student has authorization to log into. The software list we currently provide includes JAWS, Kurzweil 3000, Read and Write Gold, Super Nova, Text 2 Go, and CoWriter.

Hope this helps,

Hi all. I would like to inquire if many Universities have a Disability Service Dept. image of available technology (JAWS, Zoom Text, Kurzweil, Read & Write Gold, etc.) on campus wide computer labs and computers in the university library?
Any examples of universal design - "equal access at the same time"? Without having to strain a continued conversation to have access to the DSS software across campus with continued litigation examples, I would like to present various Universities who have successfully implemented such an atmosphere.
