What We Do
Alternate Media Production

KESI (for Kurzweil)
Learning Ally daisy book (human recorded audio book with navigation)
Bookshare daisy book (synthetic voice recorded audio book with navigation)
NOTE: Students who would like to listen to an MP3 version of their books are encouraged to make their own by using one of the free assistive technology programs in the High Tech Center or at home.
Assistive Technology Software and Tools
The High Tech Center offers a wide variety of assistive technology programs and tools that will help students in their coursework at Taft College. Once students qualify for support services, the High Tech Access Specialist will discuss the various programs in the High Tech Center from which students may benefit. Students will then meet individually with the High Tech Access Specialist to receive training on how to use the selected program(s). After individualized training is complete, students are encouraged to come to the High Tech Center during their free time and to use the skills that they have learned. Further assistance and/or training sessions can be requested as necessary.
