Assistive Technology Support

Assistive Technology Support

Assistive technology helps people complete everyday tasks that have become a challenge. We help train and educate individuals on the use of assistive technologies through classes, demo sessions and presentations. Classes offered throughout the year include JAWS for PC computers, iOS products (such as iPhone, iPad and Mac computers) and Android products. We also offer sessions focused on the latest assistive technologies, including discussions with guest speakers.

Additionally, public library computers offer various screen reading software including JAWS, ZoomText, and MAGic. Desktop magnifiers are offered at some branches. Other assistive technologies are available at the Center for Accessibility including a SARA Scanner (a self-contained scanning and reading instrument), various types of magnifiers, and a videophone.

To learn more or set up an appointment, email DCPLaccess@dc.gov or call 202-727-2142.
