Assistive Technology

Our services provides several tools that support a wide variety of needs and incorporate the principles of universal design. Individual users are able to interact with the technology in ways that work best for them. Accessible technology includes any piece of equipment, product or system that is used to improve the functional capacities of people with disabilities. 

Technology Available at UVA

Some of the listed options are openly available to the University community, or rely on your personal device capabilitites. Quantities of some equipment and software are limited; in such situations, these will be prioritized for those with documented access-related needs and marked with (SDAC) next to their name to indicate you need to contact SDAC's Assistive Technology Specialist with questions, concerns, or for support.

Sensus Access

SDAC is excited to announce a new UVA partner, Sensus Access! This amazing program allows for 24/7 automatic digital conversion to accessible media. Do you want something changed from an image-only PDF to a readable PDF? Put it through Sensus Access, and get it back via email! Would you prefer it in mp3, so you can take it on the go? It does that too! What about BRF? Of course! Different languages? There are so many to choose from. Give it a try - it's a fantastic, versatile program.
