Computer Accessibility Lab (CAL)
The Computer Accessibility Lab (CAL), provides students information and training on various Assistive Technology (AT) tools and devices.
The training and open lab setting allows students with disabilities to evaluate and test various assistive technologies, and to develop relevant skills to support their learning and retention requirements. The CAL is a valuable resource and assists students with completing De Anza College course requirements.
Scheduled small group workshops and one-on-one training is provided for students on various technologies to support access and specific learning needs.
The Computer Accessibility Lab (CAL) offers computer stations for independent student use. Students are able to use the computers during any of open lab hours, which are posted every quarter Lab Hours.
Students who require training are highly encouraged to schedule an appointment with the CAL Instructor in order to minimize waiting times and to ensure availability. DSPS recommends that students register in EDAC 240, 245, 290X/Y courses in order to learn how to use assistive technology tools and programs and to access the CAL computer stations for assignments and academic projects during CAL.
Contact the CAL lab instructor for more information on the appropriate assistive technology classes provide that provide access privileges for these computer stations.
