The Learning Lab

Physically challenged students can use the Learning Lab's Kurzweil software to scan text and have it read back to them on a large screen monitor. Soon the Lab will be adding Dragon Dictate Software. This software requires training with a staff member but will enable students with physical disabilities to read text into a microphone and have that appear on screen. The text can then be saved into a document.
