Accessibility

The Library gives visually and/or hearing impaired patrons priority access to accessibility software on one Info Commons computer station:

  • Info Commons 13 (first floor) has the software ZoomText, JAWS, Kurzweil 3000 as well as a large print keyboard and a high-speed document scanner.

The Noʻeau Center also has access to a computer with the same ADA software in their testing room. Students can send an email to request a reservation or call (808) 689-2750.

More information about the available software:

  • ZoomText is a screen magnifier software developed for visually impaired people that allows users to see and hear everything on the computer screen.
  • JAWS (Job Access With Speech) is a screen reader program that allows blind or visually impaired people to read the screen by using a text-to-speech output.
  • Kurzweil 3000 is a reading and writing software designed to assist people who are blind, partially sighted, or who have learning disabilities like dyslexia and attention deficit disorders.
