The workstations are wheelchair accessible and loaded with adaptive software and hardware such as System Access, ZoomText, OpenBook, Kurzweil 3000, a roller trackball mouse, a large print keyboard, a document scanner, and a 26 inch monitor. Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) units are also available in these eleven libraries. For more information and location of libraries with adaptive workstations and CCTV units visit this website.
