Assistive Learning Technology Center (ALTEC)

ALTeC is the technology arm of the Office of Accessible Education providing resources to make information technology and education more accessible for those with disabilities. Students can access assistive technology software such as screen magnification, speech recognition, text-to-speech screen readers, and graphic outliners from any of the computing clusters in Meyer, Tresidder, and the residences, as well as the Lane and SSRC Reading Rooms in Green Library.

ALTeC's Alternative Format Production Facility (AFPF) converts printed text to computer files (e-text), large print, or Braille using high-speed scanners and Braille embossers. The Equipment and Software Loan Library (EaSLL) allows students to borrow certain assistive technology for evaluation purposes.

ALTeC's services are available to eligible students, faculty, and staff who need assistance due to a disability. Students should contact the SDRC at (650) 723-1066 for more information. Faculty and staff should contact Stanford's ADA/504 Compliance Officer at (650) 723-0755 for a referral.
