DSP does not provide hardware or software for personal use. For students needing access on personal computers, several options for download or purchase include:

Text-to-Speech and Literacy Software

Dictation Software

Notetaking Technology

Finding Books in Alternate Formats

Several options exist for obtaining ebooks and audio versions. Students approved for Alternate Format Text as an accommodation can always request books through DSP, however these resources are great for students seeking more independence, and for personal and post-college reading: 

Always ensure that your purchase will work with your specific software; there are many variables and sometimes restrictions on files from certain vendors.
