UO Adaptive Technology

The computer has become an essential tool to every major on campus. Computer literacy has become an expected prerequisite for many of our courses. There are various disabilities that prevent a student from using a typical computer; however, adaptive technologies exist that will grant such a student full computer access. In some cases, the adaptive technologies are already resident on the computer and the student knows how to use them. In other cases though, the adaptive technology may be complex and expensive. It is in those cases that assistance can be provided by the Technology Access Program.
