What is Inclusive Technology?
Inclusive technology is the term used to describe programmes and applications that are accessible for all users. Both Microsoft and Apple offer a wide range of accessibility functionality features so that no one is limited by the technology they use.

How can it help me?
These programmes are available to all students and designed to support you in your learning. If you find you are struggling with, or spending a lot of time on certain activities, you may find some of these Apps useful in aiding your study. Imperial has a range of programmes which provide support across the following areas:
We have a dedicated YouTube playlist with videos on how to best utilise the software available as well as dedicated training sessions on installing and getting the most out of the Apps you chose to use. If you require any technical support you can get in touch directly with the ICT Service Desk who can help you download and install the software.
How can I access this technology?
Most of these study tools are available on PCs across the College and you can download them on your personal device from the Software Hub (licence permitting). You can find out more about the individual Apps available by selecting a topic from the ‘How can it help me?’ section above.
If you choose to download a piece of software on your personal device, you will need to log in to the Software Hub. When you log in to the Software Hub, select ‘Categories’ from the menu bar, from here select ‘Inclusive Technology’ which will take you to a list of all available Apps.
