The James Edward Knox Center Adaptive Technology Computing Site (Knox Center) is a quiet and accessible computing site for students registered with the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) as well as a source of computer accommodation information for the campus.
The Knox Center meets the computing and information technology needs of people with temporary or permanent disabilities. Specialized hardware and software is provided at multiple Windows and Macintosh computers, all of which have 21" or larger high-resolution monitors. All workstations also have adjustable-height work surfaces to accommodate wheelchairs or people who wish to stand. One reclining chair is available, and the other chairs are fully adjustable. One workstation has a video magnifier. There is a set of lockers to temporarily store your belongings if you wish; please bring your own lock.
Room 2064A within the Knox Center has two computers with speech recognition software: one Windows machine running Dragon NaturallySpeaking and one Mac running Dragon Dictate. Priority for use of this room will be given first to Knox Center staff who are doing evaluations and second to individuals using the Dragon programs.

Several people have asked that the Knox Center be designated as quiet space. We appreciate everyone's help in maintaining this.
The Knox Center moved to its current location in September 2014. Information and Technology Services (ITS) supports the Knox Center as part of Campus Computing Sites.
