Assistive Technologies

Kalamazoo College uses several assistive technologies to help disabled students and staff access resources in classrooms and in the Library.

Resources for the Visually Impaired:

  • There are two Optelec Clear View 300 document stations for the enlargement of text. Both are located in the Upjohn Library Media Viewing rooms A(212) and B(217). They can be moved to classrooms as needed.  
  • There are document cameras from Sony and Elmo that attach to 27-inch monitors for laboratory experiments. This allows a student to zoom in or out on an object and focus to their liking.

Resources for the Hearing Impaired: 

  • All television monitors mounted in classrooms have closed captioning capabilities.
  • Several mounted Data projectors in classrooms have closed captioning capabilities.
