Software to support document accessibility

A tool now available to the campus community will help make materials more accessible.

The University has purchased an institution-wide licence for Read&Write, which supports reading, writing, and research by making documents and files more accessible. The software is free to all UWindsor employees and students.

Read&Write helps with language acquisition and improved writing, says Anthony Gomez, assistive technologist in Student Accessibility Services.

Tenacious student credits success to UWindsor support

Jennifer Bauder hopes, when she graduates from UWindsor, to work in a field providing counseling to women and children. In the meantime, this mother of two, who is studying social work and disability studies, has some advice for her fellow students: “Don’t be too proud to ask for help.”

Bauder, who has a visual disability, credits Anthony Gomez, a disability advisor and assistive technologist in the University’s Educational Development Centre, among those who helped her along the path to a B-plus grade in a required statistics course.
