What Is the ATC?
The Access Technology Center (ATC) serves users with disabilities, allowing full use of campus computing resources. ATC hardware and software provides braille, alternate document formatting and magnification for blind/low-vision users, keyboard/mouse alternatives, speech-input software, and more. ATC staff provides accessibility consultations and instructs users in accessible hardware and software basics.
Workstations with specialized software are located throughout the Odegaard Undergraduate Library (OUG) and Suzzallo Library (SUZ).
We offer a suite of services to students, faculty and staff wishing to assess and improve accessibility of UW facilities.
