Assistive Technology

Assistive Technology (AT), reduces barriers to access, thus providing students with disabilities the capability of handling a wider range of activities independently.  In regards to electronic and information technology, AT increases the access of users with disabilities to the resources available through computers and other electronic hardware, including information on the internet, assistance with alternative text formats, audible presentation of visual information, etc.  For example, a screen reader speaks the information on a computer, which allows a student who is blind or visually impaired to access the information. 

The University of Oklahoma provides assistive technology at the following OU IT lab locations:

  • Couch Tower
  • Dale Hall Tower
  • Goddard Health Center
  • Bizzell Library Lab
  • Oklahoma Memorial Union Lab
  • Physical Science Center Lab

For more information please read the descriptions in this document Assistive Technology.  If you have any questions, contact the Accessibility and Disability Resource Center at (405) 325-3852 or by email at
