Notetaking support options
We offer a variety of notetaking support options. There are workshops and tech drop-in times for those who are curious. Please review the options below, request a meeting with Disability Services, or contact email@example.com to learn more.
This approach uses audio and/or video files from class sessions to produce a set of written notes. DS staff works with instructors and students to ensure notes are available.
Tech support staff are ready to help you identify the best equipment and/or app to meet your needs and train you on how to use it.
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions
- Individual and group training is available
There are many different types of specific devices and applications that may be useful, for example:
- Devices are not limited to, but could include:
- Phones, tablets, chromebooks, laptops, or braille devices
- Digital and Tape Recording devices
- Alphasmarts (word processing units for typed notes with a full keyboard)
- Livescribe pens (record audio and match it to written notes)
- Applications could include examples such as:
- One Note
- AudioNote 2
- Easy Voice Recorder
A variety of alternative options are used when there are specific needs that can’t be met otherwise. When possible, we like to encourage a Universal Design approach. This way, notes are available to the whole class.
