The Assistive Technology Information Center (ATIC) provides information technology resources and services specifically designed to address the needs of MIT staff, students, and visitors with disabilities.
Our mission is to match individuals with technology solutions that facilitate independent study and work at MIT. Because each individual has a unique set of skills and preferences, ATIC customers play an active role in selecting technology and solutions. As part of the IS&T Customer Support Accessibility and Usability Team, ATIC also advocates for users in the design and development of IT products and services. Products that have accessibility built in reach the widest audience and interact well with assistive technologies.
Primary services include:
- A computer cluster for MIT students with disabilities to work independently.
- Consultations with individuals exploring assistive technology options
- Demonstrations of assistive technologies such as alternative keyboards, pointing devices, scanning devices, magnification or voice recognition software
- Assistance in making MIT academic course materials accessible to students with disabilities
