Global Accessibility Awareness Day – Open House

Join us for an open house event where you will learn about accessibility resources available from your St. Tammany Parish Library. The featured resource for the day is a TAPit, or Touch Accessible Platform Interactive Technology device. TAPit is the first ADA compliant interactive learning station designed to recognize the difference between an arm resting upon the screen and a finger or assistive device intentionally tapping an image. Providing an optimal interface for patrons with special needs to use at their own pace, TAPit helps reinforce skills that can be transferred to other computer-based learning applications using the Internet, educational software or communication devices.
