The goal of Disability Support Services (DSS) is to provide assistive technology to students with disabilities to help them access textbooks, websites and other materials needed for their college studies and give them an equal opportunity at the College. Assistive technology is hardware or computer software designed to help students access the materials they need to use in their studies and beyond.
Some types of assistive technology include:
The DSS Office maintains an Assistive Technology Computer Lab on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus in A-101 (the DSS office), which offers adaptive equipment and computer software for students registered with DSS. The Lab contains PC workstations equipped with the standard collegewide applications, as well as the following assistive technology computer programs:
Other equipment available in the Lab includes CCTVs, video print enlargers for students with visual impairments.
In the open computer labs and classroom computer labs throughout the College, JAWS and/or ZoomText can be installed at the request of a student, staff or faculty member. Please contact DSS if you need this disability accommodation.
Seminole State offers guides for certain assistive technology products. These include:
