The Office of Accessibility & Disability Services is committed to supporting the academic success of Cal Maritime's students with disabilities. We provide support services and serve as an informational resource to individual students with disabilities and to the entire campus community.
The California State University does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its programs and activities, including admission and access. Federal and state laws, including sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, prohibit such discrimination. This office has been designated to coordinate the efforts of the California State University Maritime Academy to comply with all applicable federal and state laws prohibiting discrimination on the basis of disability. For inquiries concerning compliance, please email us.
The CSU Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI)
This initiative requires CSU campuses to provide all students, faculty, staff, and the general public with access to information resources and technology. Find more information on the ATI website.
Read & Write Literacy Software
An inclusive learning software designed to support individuals of all ages, learning styles, and abilities with their tasks in research, read, and write while using their existing tools such as word processors, PDF reader, and web browsers. The easy-to-use toolbar makes documents, files and web pages more accessible. It offers support with everyday tasks like reading text out loud, understanding unfamiliar words, researching assignments, writing papers, and proofing written work. It's designed in line with the principles of UDL (Universal Design for Learning), so it fits right in with a wide range of educational technology strategies and personalized learning plans.
Read&Write is available for free to all Cal Maritime students, staff, and faculty. The campus community may access the software on Mac or Windows workstations at computer labs and the library on campus as well as obtaining a copy for their personal Mac or Windows computers, iPad and Android tablets. Click the Read&Write logo below for downloading instructions.
It is compatible across different platforms including Google, Windows, Mac, and Tablets.
