SSB Bart Accessibility Management Platform (AMP)

The Accessibility Management Platform is available for all members of the University of Alabama community. AMP is a web-based tool that evaluates web and PDF accessibility through automated, guided manual, and functional testing and generates reports. AMP allows web developers and content managers to prioritize web accessibility efforts; it also offers best practices, remediation steps, and code examples to educate and guide users to repair issues.

Docsoft Transcription/Captioning System

Thanks to the Office of the Provost, UA has acquired a Docsoft: AV appliance and Transcript Editor to aid with captioning and transcribing video, audio, and multimedia content. This device generates media transcriptions, which can be formatted into caption files. The appliance automates speech-to-text transcription and accepts profile and vocabulary files for individual speakers to improve accuracy.

ZoomText 10 for Windows screen-magnification/text-to-speech software is available campuswide and may be installed on all UA-owned computers connected to the campus network. Users can adjust screen magnification, color schemes and contrast, and have on-screen content read to them.
