Services for Patrons with Disabilities

McAllen Public Library offers visually assistive devices for the visually impaired community.

Users can make use of the following equipment:
• ZoomText: enlarges computer screen text
• JAWS: a screen reading software that reads information on your screen
• Merlin: a desktop electronic magnifier which enlarges printed materials (books, magazines, newspapers) on a video screen

This computer station is located in front of Electronic Classroom A at the Main Library. The software can be used with Microsoft Office programs and our online catalog. All reference staff has been trained to help customers use the software.

For assistance or headphones, please see the Information Desk.
