Assistive software on the Scottish Borders network

Our Scottish Borders Campus has a large network of PC's located both in High Mill, and the college library. In the main High Mill building, Texthelp Read & Write and Inspiration mind mapping are both available, while Texthelp Read & Write is also available in the library. Please refer to Assistive software on the University network for further information.

Useful apps for phones and tablets

A selection of apps for both Android and iOS that we consider useful for study, organisation and general well-being.

Equipment Loan Pool

We maintain a limited stock of ergonomic and assistive technology-related equipment, which can be issued as loan equipment to you to trial, or bridge a short gap if you are waiting on your own DSA funded equipment. We can make this equipment available for longer periods if necessary. For further information, please contact disability@hw.ac.uk.
