Assistive Technology on Campus
There are several locations on campus, other than the Office of Disability Services, where assistive technology can be accessed.
- Assistive technology is available computers in Atkins Library. Additional technology is available in Room 101C for students registered with Disability Services. For more information on library accessibility, please visit the Atkins website.
IMPORTANT: Students experiencing difficulty with accessing shelved books or resources can request assistance from a librarian. Students can visit the online library catalog, and once the book information is found, it can be printed and given to a librarian for further assistance.
The Office of Disability Services collaborates with departments and colleges across campus to provide an inclusive environment and has specific software standards that support inclusion. These standards are available in all computer labs in UNC Charlotte. Standard software includes the following:
- JAWS screen reader
- MAGic screen magnifier*
- Read&Write Gold
If specialized assistive technology is needed, contact the Office of Disability Services at 704-687-0040 (tty/v) or firstname.lastname@example.org
* Note that MAGic is not compatible with All-in-One (AIO) computers. AIO computers are one unit with no computer case. When launching MAGic on an AIO computer the screen goes dark, and what appears is only the mouse arrow. IT Services and the vendor of MAGic are aware of the issue and working on a resolution. Let us know if you encounter any issues.
