Binghamton University has a variety of adaptive equipment and software programs available for use by students with disabilities. We’re excited about our current technology and are always researching new innovations. Please speak with a staff member in Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) regarding your individual information access needs and the resources available on campus. The following overview provides an introduction to campus adaptive and assistive technologies.
SSD and the Glenn G. Bartle Library maintain a small computer lab in the Adaptive Technology Room (ATR) on the third floor of the main library. Students interested in accessing this lab must meet with the SSD Director or Learning Disabilities Specialist to obtain key borrowing authorization. The computers located in the lab support the following assistive software programs:
Kurzweil Professional 3000
Dragon Naturally Speaking
Several of the adaptive software programs listed above are available at other campus locations such as selected public computers in the Glenn G. Bartle Library PODS area, the Science Library, Academic A Building, and the Downtown Center library. Each computer is marked by signage stating "Priority Access for Persons with Disabilities." Questions related to priority access or technical use of the programs may be directed to the librarians in those areas or to the Services for Students with Disabilities office.
The Services for Students with Disabilities office has assistive devices available for students to borrow including:
Phonic Ear Portable Assistive Listening Device
Victor Vibe and Victor Wave portable players
