Interested students should contact the DRC office for more information in Bldg. 9-133 or  650.306.3259 (V) or 650.306.3161 (TDD/TTY).

  • Kurzweill 3000 – scanning/reading software
  • Dragon Naturally Speaking – voice recognition system
  • ZoomText Xtra 9 – screen magnification for DSO and Windows
  • JAWS – screen reader for windows
