Adaptive Technology at IU Kokomo

At IU Kokomo, technology and tools have been made available through a partnership with UITS Adaptive Technology and Accessibility Center to assist students with disabilities in reaching their educational goals by working to make campus life and learning accessible.

What is Adaptive Technology? - Adaptive Technology (sometimes called Assistive Technology) includes hardware or software designed to provide improved information access for individuals with disabilities.  For example, our tools feature screen reading software that makes a computer accessible to individuals who are blind.

The following tools are available on every student workstation in the Library, all student computer labs, and all classrooms.  In addition, these tools are also available on faculty and staff office workstations:

Kurzweil 3000 version 10.07 - The comprehensive reading, writing and learning software solution for any struggling reader, including individuals with learning disabilities, such as dyslexia, attention deficit disorder or those who are English Language Learners.
