Work Station for Blind and Visually Impaired Users
Where to Find Our Specific PC Work Station
The work station is equipped with a PC. The operating system is Windows 7. You can access the Internet via the standard browser Mozilla Firefox. A braille display translates the text line by line into braille. With switching on the computer, a screen reader starts. It can read out screen content aloud with help of the program JAWS (Job Access with Speech). For reading out texts aloud there is a reading device installed which is also able to save texts. We also provide a book edge scanner for scanning texts.
The workplace also offers various facilities for users with strong visual impairments. With an enlarger, texts are directly transferred to a connected screen where they can be magnified at one's convenience. With ZoomText we provide an easy to use program for reading out and enlarging the screen.
