The Forsyth County Public Library offers computers equipped with assistive technology (AT). The services are available at Government Center and Carver locations during regular library hours.
Orientation for this new technology is required. To discuss your particular needs and schedule an orientation date at the location most convenient for you, call 703-3079 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For customers who have been oriented and know how to use the new technologies, a workstation can be scheduled for you, or if you are at an AT location, you may sign up if no one is scheduled for the workstation. Walk-ins are welcome every Thursday from 3 to 5 p.m. for orientation and use. The Library will make every effort to meet your AT needs but cannot guarantee assistance without an appointment.
All hardware and software have been purchased with Federal Library Services and Technology Act funds through a grant administered by the State Library of North Carolina.

Video Relay Service (VRS) is a relay that allows a user to communicate in American Sign Language (ASL) via video-conference equipment to a sign language interpreter, who voices the signed message to a standard telephone user in spoken English. The interpreter then relays the voice message back to the caller using sign language.
VRS is available at our Lewisville Branch Library and Walkertown Branch Library during regular library hours.
Each of our AT workstations features a fully adjustable desk and chair, room to maneuver a wheelchair, and a separate adjustable keyboard tray.
