While a number of accommodations can be addressed within the curriculum and LMS, there are also additional accessibility options depending on student needs and device usage.
Magnifiers can help students enlarge their screen, or a part of a screen, for easier viewing. They are available in full screen, docked (half screen) or lens (part of the screen) magnification.
Speech-to-text technology allows the user to speak aloud and have the computer document their words as text. This can be helpful for students who struggle to write longer assignments or those who struggle to get their thoughts down in writing.
