Adaptive and Accessible Technologies in Libraries: The Carroll School for the Blind

Improving Access to Library resources

The Carroll Center for the Blind

The Carroll Center for the Blind, located in Newton, Massachusetts, provides help for the blind including training and adaptive devices to individuals of all ages who have lost their sight so they can live independent and fulfilling lives. We offer a number of other services for the blind, such as technical training, low vision products, and much more.

The Carroll Center

Patrons of the Perkins Library have access to a world of resources - from braille and audio books to accessible magazines and museum passes. Readers with visual impairment, blindness or physical disability are able to read independently in a format most comfortable to them.

Technology Services

The Carroll Center for the Blind offers a number of training and evaluation services from novice to expert that can help prepare a blind or vision impaired person to use technology proficiently for their goals and interests. Technology for the blind programs are available for children, working age adults and seniors, as well as for teachers and rehabilitation professionals in the use of speech, large print, PDAs, cellphones and Braille technology.
