SLCC Disability Resource Center Receives Outstanding Achievement Award from National Federation of the Blind

The Salt Lake Community College Disability Resource Center was recently awarded the President’s Award Recognizing Outstanding Achievements in Accessibility by the National Federation of the Blind of Utah.

“The National Federation of the Blind is a wonderful organization that does great advocacy work. It is a real honor for the College to be recognized by the NFB,” said Candida Darling, SLCC Disability Resource Center director. “The College as a whole—not just the Disability Resource Center—has made really remarkable strides toward universal accessibility, and we are very excited for SLCC to receive recognition for the good work that is done here to that end.”

Darling cited JAWS, zoom text, and a software purchase that assesses web site accessibility as resources that SLCC has recently provided that have been particularly effective at making the College more universally accessible. JAWS is a screen reader that reads all text that appears on a computer screen for blind computer users; zoom text is a magnification system that makes text readable for those who have limited sight.

“Many people from across the College have worked to improve access in our instruction, in our facilities, and in our online environments,” Darling said.

The National Federation of the Blind (NFB) is the oldest, largest, and most influential nationwide membership organization of blind people in the United States. Founded in 1940, the NFB advocates for the civil rights and equality of blind Americans, and develops innovative education, technology, and training programs to provide the blind and those who are losing vision with the tools they need to become independent and successful. We need your support.

About the College: Salt Lake Community College is an accredited, student-focused, urban college meeting the diverse needs of the Salt Lake community.
