There are several types of Disabilities:
These are pecific to Section 508, but the same set of requirements also relate to WCAG and other public accessibility standards. Basically, for any accessibility standard you have two broad sets of requirements that must be satisfied:
Validation is performed against a set of best practices and unit tests that must be executed to validate compliance. Testing the twelve paragraphs of §1194.21 and the sixteen paragraphs of §1194.22 requires validating against one hundred and twenty best practices. This is no small job.
Assistive Technologies (AT's) can be provided for a nominal cost. In fact, many resources are built into to the Windows and Apple operating systems.
Read more under the tab "Assistive Technologies Overview". Many of these are available for little or no cost, Other technologies require considerable investment. If you have a disability, CLTCC will evaluate your disability and make reasonable accomodation to help you be successful in your program.
Apps (little software applications) allow you to customize your tablet to do the things you like to do. Some of the apps listed are free, while others are fee-based (meaning you have to pay for them). Additionally, some apps are initially free, and then require in-app purchases if more features and functionality are desired. Listed, you will find some app recommendations we have come up with based on recommendations and reviews.
CLTCC Library Services does not endorse any fee-based apps nor is it liable for reimbursement of any apps paid for by patrons.
