The Adaptive Technologies Computing Lab offers UCI students, faculty, and staff an opportunity to learn and use state-of-the-art adaptive technology. The goal of the Adaptive Technologies Computing Lab is to provide persons with disabilities with a means of achieving independence in their academic work or in the work place. For this reason, new or updated equipment is secured each year.

The DSC can also have other accessible software for word prediction, grammar check and spell check available for student use. In addition, DSC can also have keyboard, mouse, workstation/tables and other ergonomic needs available for use.

The Adaptive Technologies Computing Lab is equipped to access UCInet and the Internet.

Consultation is available to determine appropriate technology to meet disability-related needs including visual impairments, hearing impairments, learning disabilities, speech impairments, mobility or dexterity limitations such as carpel tunnel syndrome. We will also work with professors and TAs who want to provide computer access for persons with disabilities in specific courses or in computer labs on the campus. Faculty and staff with disabilities may contact us for assistance.

We have extensive information about hardware and software designed specifically for computer access by persons with disabilities.

Lab staff will provide extensive training and demonstrations in the use of assistive technology. Both the training and the demonstrations are offered to groups and individuals upon request.
