FOR THE DISABLED

The Main Library of Medical University of Lublin has created two terminals with sight- and hearing-challenged readers in mind. These terminals can be found in the Main Reading Room and in the Computer Room in Scientific Information Department. 

 

The terminals are equipped with designated keyboards for the sight-challenged, ZoomText Magnifier/Reader 10 software package to magnify contents of the screen, and IVONA speech synthesizer, enabling people who suffer problems with eyesight or hearing to comfortably browse available resources on Windows 8.1 workstations. The terminals also come with Window-Eyes, a dedicated plug-in  to use in conjunction with Microsoft Office applications. 

 

IVONA Reader is a Polish-language multi-purpose digital speech synthesizer that reads text content found in files and applications. You can also use headphones which are provided on demand by the librarian at the desk. 

 

For sight-challenged people, there are also two Candy Lifestyle digital magnifiers available. They are provided on demand by the librarians in the Main Reading Room and the Magazine Reading Room. Candy Lifestyle magnifiers can display magnified text in various color modes helpful for readers with eyesight problems. They are designed to be easy and comfortable to use.
