Software for Users with Disabilities


The SEnIT Suite is provided by The Disability Centre for the use of students and the hardware and software is serviced by Information Systems who also provide the services of The Disability IT Support Analyst. Training and support in the use of assistive technology can be booked with the Disability IT Support Officer throughout the year in addition to student induction to the SEnIT Suite for new users. Further details can be obtained by contacting the Disability Centre


The Disability IT Support Analyst is available to help you with your assistive technology needs and may be contacted for advice in this regard. However, there is a more formal method of seeking support which involves Occupational Health initially assessing your needs. It may also benefit you in the long run to include your line manager from the beginning of this process as you may need to seek their support in the purchase of hardware or software, if this is recommended.
