Assistive Technology

Assistive Banner

Any supportive device falls under the catchall of Assistive Technology, from specialist software to mobility scooters, hearing loops to height adjustable desks.

At the University of Hull we provide software on all of our open access computers including:

  • Read&Write Gold from TextHelp! (text-to-speech, reading and writing support)
  • Mindview and Inspiration Mind-mapping softwares
  • Screen magnification software

My Study Bar


The Learning Support Team recommends MyStudyBar as an alternative package of assistive software for use at home. It includes screen tinting, mind-mapping and speech-to-text programs, and is totally free. You can download MyStudyBar here.
