New Computer Workstation for our Patrons with Disabilities
We are happy to announce that Somerville Public Library, Central Branch – Wellington Hall, now has
a computer which has special software for our patrons with disabilities. These include MAGic which
is a screen magnifier for patrons with low vision, JAWS which is a screen reader for patrons who have
visual impairments, and Dragon Naturally Speaking which allows patrons to read into a microphone and
transcribes the words into a Word Document. The workstation is in a quiet area of the library to allow
for privacy and is spacious for our patrons in wheelchairs or those with walking aids.
This workstation may be used by all patrons, but patrons who require the special software will get
preference for this computer. Please see a librarian if you have any questions.
