The University provides computer resources for students with disabilities. All our regular computer labs are equipped with a special workstation and the computers have JAWS and Zoomtext installed. Headphones are also available for checkout. In addition, the campus maintains a scanner with the Kurzweil software located in the Writing Center and a Braille printer located in Media Services. For additional information visit the Disability Services site.
Please note that when you are working in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or Access, the AutoSAVE feature is set to save every 10 minutes. You should remember to save your work often, just in case. Do not rely on the AutoSAVE feature.
Allgood Hall E152 (24 Hour Lab)
New computers are now installed in Allgood Hall E152. These new computers do NOT have a floppy drive. Floppy drives are considered old technology and are being replaced by USB jump drives (also referred to as flash drives). During this transition period, there is a computer located in the front of the room (by the white board) that has a floppy available for you to use.
If you still use a floppy to save information, you may want to consider purchasing a new USB jump drive. You may also save your work on your Z: drive.
Library Lobby, 3rd Floor (LIB3LOB)
We will soon replace these computers and these, too, will NOT have floppy drives. The computers located on the 1st floor lobby of the library are available if you need a floppy.
Saving to your Z: drive
Your Z: drive is your assigned network space that can be accessed from any computer you log into on campus, or from your home computer via your ISP provider. If you need to copy this data, then do a COPY command AFTER you have saved to your Z: drive.
Printing & PawPrint$
What is it?
PawPrint$ is a print management system and is installed on the general computers in the campus labs and study areas. In addition, some departments are also using this system to manage printing.
PawPrint$ provides a way to help our students be more judicious in the use of the printing resources, not a means for charging for printing in the general labs. Effective Spring Term 2006, each student will be allotted $25.00 per term for printing, which at $.05 per page for standard black & white laser printing, provides 500 pages for the term. This allocation is NOT rolled over from term to term. We will continue to collect data to ensure that this is a reasonable number for printing what students need for their classes.
Beginning Spring Term 2009 (January 2009) students who need to print more than their allotment MUST use money from their JagCard.
How to Add JagCash Funds
Students may add JagCash funds in the ASU Bookstore, the Business Office, the JagCard Office, JagCard terminal in Allgood Hall, or JagCard terminal in JSAC.
When You Print a Document
- A message will popup indicating how many pages you are trying to print and how much the job will cost to print.
- Your current available funds message is displayed.
- When asked if you want to print the job, select "YES" or "NO" from the pull down display window.
- If you do not select "YES" within a reasonable amount of time, the print job will automatically cancel and you will not be charged. If you select "NO" your print job will cancel and you will not be charged.
- After the job prints, another message will display telling you your job has printed and which printer it went to.
- If you have questions or need assistance, contact the ITS Student Help Desk in University Hall Room 130 at (706) 737–1676.
