For Patrons with Disabilities
The Library maintains a dedicated computer workstation for the use of patrons who are blind, vision-impaired or have certain learning or reading disabilities. The computer is loaded with the Kurzweil 1000 program to scan and convert printed matter to audible speech, and the ZoomText program to magnify text (including online web-based content), for the use of persons with low vision or blindness. For those with learning disabilities such as dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, dysgraphia or ESOL, the computer offers the Kurzweil 3000 program,which highlights text and provides visual and audio tracking. These highly-capable programs can be customized and modified by the user to address many different individual needs. The workstation is located in a private room that is kept locked when not in use. For access to this facility, please inquire at the Circulation Desk.
