Assistive Software
SensusAccess is a self-service, alternate media solution made available by Kennedy Library to automatically convert files into a range of alternate media including audio books (MP3 and DAISY), e-books (EPUB, EPUB3 and Mobi) and digital Braille. The service can also be used to convert inaccessible files such as image-only PDF files, JPG pictures and Microsoft PowerPoint presentations into more accessible and less tricky formats. This service is available at no charge for all Cal Poly students, faculty, staff and alumni. We call that Inclusive Technology.

All workstations throughout the library are equipped with the following assistive software:

  • Read & Write GOLD (text-to-speech literary software)
  • ZoomText
  • JAWS

There are also several assistive technology workstations equipped with ZoomText large print keyboards and height-adjustable tables. The locations of these workstations can be found on the maps page.

In addition, Cal Poly’s Virtual Computer Labs is a cloud-based application streaming service that enables Cal Poly students, faculty and staff to access specialized academic software previously only available in on-campus labs—using a web browser.
Find more information on the Virtual Computer Labs website.
