Assistive technology

Assistive technology software is available in different library locations on campus. As of Fall 2021, remote and in-person access to the assistive software is available.

To be given access to book an assistive workstation, please send an email to libadapt@uOttawa.ca

Visit the Information Technology page for instructions on how to connect to remote labs to access the assistive software online. You must use the VMware Horizon Client to access this software and not your web browser. Once you have connected to the portal, select the icon BIBLIO – Kurzweil-DragonNaturallySpeaking to access the computers with the assistive software.
