Do you prefer to listen to your readings or dictate your writing out loud? This private study space provides software to convert both your speech and text as well as a quiet room for you to work in.

Located on the ground floor of Van Pelt Library and just around the corner from Mark’s Cafe, the Butler Assistive Technology Room was designed to facilitate and enhance learning.

After your reservation is confirmed, you can pick up the room key at the Rosengarten Reserve Desk.

The room includes an iMac and a PC desktop, a scanner, a video magnifier, and a variety of assistive software, including text-to-speech, speech-to-text, and OCR conversion technology. This assistive software allows users to have documents read out loud, to dictate and transcribe writing, and to convert and edit documents without retyping them!

Interested in training or have questions? Feel free to email WIC staff for technology and instructional support. We are here to help you out!

Can’t make it on to our orientation on March 16th? We’ll be back again on Wednesday, March 30th from 12:30 until 1 p.m. Come see us!
