ISS, on behalf of the University, has subscribed to a campus-only licence for a suite of accessibility software from Sensory Software. The software is currently being tested, and should be available soon. This comprises the following products:
Screen magnification software. Whatever appears on the screen can be magnified up to 16 times.
Speech output software. This is a talking tool to support users with little or no sight.
This combines LookOUT (for speech) and Magnus (for magnification).
Speech output software. This is a talking tool to support reading and writing for fully-sighted users. Users who might find this useful will include: dyslexic people, early learners, slow learners and users who are working on a computer with a language that they are perhaps not too literate with. It can be used to speak out the information on the screen or to echo user input.
ISS also has a site licence for the MindJet mind mapping software.
