All Saints Library has an accessible study room on the ground floor. This room can only be used by students whose need for access is specified on their Personal Learning Plan (PLP) created by Disability Services.

The room contains a range of specialist accessible equipment, software and assistive technologies:

  • Equipment in the room includes electric height-adjustable desks, large text keyboards and a range of computer mice, joysticks and wrist supports.
  • Assistive technology available includes Optical Character Recognition (OCR) reader with the ability to read text aloud, and text-magnifying software.

The assistive software programs MindView (mind mapping software) and TextHelp Read & Write (screen reading software) are available on all Manchester Met PCs for those students who may need to use specialist software but do not have access to the accessible study room via their PLP.
