Visual Impairments

Disability Services can support students in liaising with their Department to ensure materials are accessible and to put in place reasonable adjustments including special exam arrangements. We can also provide reading, notetaking and orientation assistance, support with scanning and enlarging text and help accessing the Disabled Student Allowances. We assist students in contacting publishers to request resources in accesible electronic formats and we also have links with local guide dog associations and other external organisations for Brailling.

There is a range of assistive software and equipment in the library such as large screen monitors, Kurzweil 1000, JAWS, scanners and OCR software. Additional information is available at the Library's Assistive Technology webpages.

We recommend that you contact Disability Services to discuss your individual requirements prior to entry.
