Computer Access for Everyone


Tameside Libraries have equipment and software that makes it easier for everybody to use our computers. To avoid disappointment please book a PC in advance and tell staff the equipment you would like to use.

  • Trackball mouse devices - suitable for right and left hand users, there is no need to move your arm or rotate your wrist.
  • Mouse Trays - which enable you to put the mouse where you can use it more easily.
  • Big Keys LX (Large Keyboards) - with keys 10 times larger and letters 4 times larger than standard keyboards.
  • 3-D keyboards - for users with limited, or no hand functions, who may use 1 finger, a head-stick or mouth-stick.
  • Footrest - allows you to rest your feet at a level that’s comfortable.
  • Wrist rest – Resting the heel of your palm on a “wrist rest” between bouts of typing can help keep the wrist straight.
  • LCD screens – LCD (liquid crystal display) monitors do not flicker, are brighter and have higher contrast than older, CRT (cathode ray tube) monitors. 
  • Windows Magnifier - all of our public PCs have the windows magnifier enabled, allowing screen content to be magnified up to 9 times. 
  • Microsoft Narrator - a text–to–speech utility for people who are blind or have low vision. Narrator reads what is displayed on the screen: the contents of the active window, menu options, or text that has been typed.
