This video tutorial will give you an overview of some of the specialist software we provide to help you use the computers, and to help you with your studies.

  • TechDis Toolbar - to help you when viewing Internet Explorer
  • TextHelp Read and Write - which reads pages of text to you
  • Accessibility options built in to Windows XP (particularly Windows Magnifier)
