Assistive Technology Support for Online Classes

The ATRC is dedicated to supporting you in online courses. We recognize that online courses may be new and may present some challenges for you. Please be assured that the ATRC is available to support your ability to access online coursework.

Need to get started quickly? See our list of Free AT! 

In addition to our in-person services, we are continuing to provide meetings by phone or in an online meeting via Microsoft Teams or Zoom.

During the scheduling of your appointment, coordinate with us to determine whether a phone or online meeting will work best for you. You will receive appointment reminders as usual regardless of which meeting type you prefer.

CSU is piloting ReadSpeaker, a campus-wide online text to speech tool built directly into Canvas. ReadSpeaker’s TextAid tool and web extension read other websites, PDFs, and other documents aloud. It is mobile browser compatible, so users can listen on the go.

ReadSpeaker allows streaming to mp3, extracting highlights, visual adjustments, and much more. Check out ReadSpeaker for Canvas for details.

Students, please let us know if you’re having problems accessing your online course content with assistive technology. We can work with you and your instructor on solutions. Email your service provider or use our contact form to let us know what kind of issues you’re encountering.

Instructors, please let us know if you’re having problems with accessibility of online course delivery systems. We can work with you to find solutions and workarounds.
