These PowerPoint slides explain how one library in the United States provides services to people with disabilities. It provides examples of assistive technology that can help people with disabilities use the library. Some technology and services can help people who are deaf or hard of hearing. Others can help people who are blind or have low vision. And some technology can help people with mobility disabilities who cannot use a regular computer keyboard or mouse. Teachers and parents might learn about technology they can explore. Advocates can use this information to encourage other libraries to provide better services for people who are deaf or hard of hearing or have other disabilities.

We were unable to assess whether these PowerPoint slides are accessible for people using screen reading software.
