Students with Disabilities

Assistive Technology

Assistive technologies are specifically designed to increase, maintain, or improve the participation of people with disability in education, work and life in general. Read here for more information about the use of Assistive Technology with university studies.

UTAS IT Services provides four Assistive Technology software solutions (see below) to assist students with disabilities to access and to participate in their studies.

We also manage in collaboration with Accessibility Services, the Student Access Study Centre(SASC) located on the Sandy Bay campus. This offers specialised equipment in a fully accessible study environment. For further information about SASC, please contact Accessibility Services on 1800 817 675 or via email at

The following Assistive Software is available for UTAS students. Please contact Accessibility Services to arrange access.

If you require alternative assistive software please discuss this with your Accessibility Advisor.
