Additionally, this workstation has a current copy of the JAWS screen reading software, ZoomText software (for enlarging on screen content), and Kurzweil 3000 software (for text-to-speech conversion).  This workstation also features an extra large monitor for patrons with vision impairments and a joystick style mouse for those individuals with motor-control impairments.

The Pace library has an analog enlarger to assist patrons with visual impairments. This device will enlarge and display on screen any item which is placed under the camera. There are several additional high-contrast modes that may be helpful for patrons with some forms of color vision deficiency.
