Assistive Technology Last updated on 4/25/2016 Print this page The Assistive Technology team has produced some Video Podcasts on how to use the text-to-speech and mind-mapping software. The University has several hundred open access PCs located in various places across both campuses. You can find where a PC is available to use now by using the PC Finder. Any supportive device falls under the catchall of Assistive Technology, from specialist software to mobility scooters, hearing loops to height adjustable desks.
