Where Did They Put the ALTeC Lab?

Web View | Print View

  by Shelley Haven

The Assistive Learning Technology Center (ALTeC) computer cluster has moved! For the past few years, the ALTeC accessible computer lab has shared space with the Digital Language Lab in the 280 corner of Meyer Library's second floor (closest to the bookstore). Now we're along the window wall in the 220 Area outside of the Flex Lab/Classroom (the corner closest to Cubberley). See also Academic Computing's Technology Services and Facilities Update in this issue.

Operated by the Office of Accessible Education, the ALTeC provides an array of resources to make information technology and education more accessible for those with disabilities.

Perhaps the most visible of these resources is the accessible computer lab. See also New Assistive Technology Software on Public Clusters in this issue. The ALTeC lab's current accommodations include:

ALTeC's services are available to students, faculty, and staff needing assistance due to a verifiable disability. Students should contact the Student Disability Resource Center at 723-1066; faculty and staff should contact the ADA/Section 504 Compliance Officer at 723-0755 for a referral. For demonstrations of the technologies, questions about computer accessibility and technology accommodations, or consultation on these issues, contact Shelley Haven at 725-6173 or
