The ATC

The Assistive Technology Centre (ATC)

The ATC is an open-access computer room for the use of students with a disability, specific learning difficulty, mental health needs or a long-term health condition.

All computers in the ATC have assistive software to support students to work effectively:

  • Claro Software
  • Dragon Naturally Speaking
  • Inspiration

A number of the computers have:

  • ZoomText
  • SuperNova

Currently there are exams taking place in the ATC, so access may be limited. During these times, the ATC Annexe will still be available for use.

For more information or queries, please contact LibraryInclusion (@gold.ac.uk) or come to the help desk.
