Universal Access Workstations: The Universal Access Workstation is a motorized adjustable station designed to help clients with disabilities. Some of its state-of-the-art features include assistive listening systems and specialized keyboards and mice.
 

The Universal Access Station is designed with state-of-the art technology that can help clients with disabilities. Disability does not mean inability. This technology includes:

  • Motorized adjustable workstations designed to accommodate all customers including those with wheelchairs or with limited mobility

  • Assistive listening systems for the hard-of-hearing

  • Video magnifiers, screen reading, magnification software and handheld magnifiers for the visually impaired

  • Literacy support software which allows customers to both see and hear job information on the computer

  • Specialized keyboards and mice, including keyboards with larger keys and alternative layouts

  • Software which can help with basic sentence structure, word choices and spell checking, and can be used to create attention-grabbing résumés and cover letters
     

Job center staff will be available to assist you in using the Universal Access Workstation; these staff have been trained to help make your experience as successful as possible. This is another no-fee service provided by MLJT.



 

TTY (Text Telephone) Services: A TTY is a special device that lets people who are deaf, hard of hearing, or speech-impaired use the telephone to communicate, by allowing them to type messages back and forth to one another instead of talking and listening.

 

TTY stands for Text Telephone (or Teletypewriter for the Deaf). A TTY is a special device that lets people who are deaf, hard of hearing, or speech-impaired use the telephone to communicate by allowing them to type messages back and forth to one another instead of talking and listening.

A TTY is required at both ends of the conversation in order to communicate. If you don't have a TTY, you can still call a person who is deaf, hard of hearing, or speech-impaired by using the Telecommunications Relay Service (TRS) with the assistance of a special relay operator.
