The Trinity Ability co_op call on staff in Trinity College Dublin to improve compliance with LENS reports.

All students registered with the Disability Service have LENS reports that outline the supports they are entitled to in college. Lecturers in Trinity ignore the needs of students with disabilities and this needs to change.

Watch this video to learn more about LENS reports and why they are so important.

Turn the sound on!

This is what a screen reader picks up when reading a scanned book page. Students rely on the material lecturers provide for them online now more than ever. These are often inaccessible for people with disabilities. Everyone should be provided with course content that they can access.

Can you hear what’s being discussed in this seminar? It is not a requirement for lectures to be captioned in Trinity. Online classes are not accessible to students who are deaf or hard of hearing!
