Assistive Technology

What is Assistive Technology? For the purposes of this web site, Assistive technology is technology used by individuals in order to perform functions that might otherwise be difficult or impossible. Assistive technology can include hardware, software, and peripherals that assist people with disabilities in accessing computers or other information technologies.

The boundaries of Assistive Technology and mainstream technology are quickly becoming blurred. For instance, ANY STUDENT with a kent.edu e-mail address is entitled to a copy of the premiere Read &Write Gold software. This software is feature rich and almost ANY STUDENT could find a useful feature that could enhance their academic progress. For more information, contact Mollie Miller at mmiller@kent.edu.

The SAS Assistive Technology Lab is located within Student Accessibility Services on the Ground Floor of the DeWeese Center in Room 23. If you are interested in a demonstration of a specific technology below, contact Mollie Miller, Assistive Technology Coordinator at (330) 672-3391.
