DSPS provides adaptive educational equipment to assist disabled students in compensating for functional limitations imposed by their disabilities. For example, Zoom Text is an adaptive program available to assist visually impaired students who need to read printed materials in an enlarged format. Another example is Dragon Dictate, a voice-activated word processing program designed for individuals with disabilities that impact keyboarding abilities. Digital recorders may be available for loan to students for note-taking and reader purposes. Hearing Helpers and Closed Captioning may be available for those with hearing loss for classroom lectures.
