Transforming computer accessibility with My Access Passport

Transforming computer accessibility

National Star’s team of technology specialists have created a tool with the potential to revolutionise computer accessibility on a universal basis.

My Access Passport enables people with disabilities to access their preferred settings on any computer – no matter where it is. From screen resolution and font size to high visibility mouse pointers, the tool remembers important information about an individual’s IT needs, and saves them to either the cloud or a USB pen. With My Access Passport, users could, at the plugging–in of a device, be set up and ready to go in a variety of locations. Continuity between school, college, work and community spaces can also be ensured.

In 2015 My Access Passport was made one of four winners in Jisc’s Accessible by Design competition, and the team are now undertaking further work to bring the product to market.
