Accessibility

Turning Technologies provides a solution for visually-impaired students. ResponseCard RF-Accessibility is a radio frequency keypad designed for the visually impaired. The keypad contains all the features and functionality of ResponseCard RF, but with Braille characters adjacent to the corresponding buttons. In addition, ResponseCard RF-Accessibility includes a vibration motor that pulses when various actions occur.

  • Orientation bump on 5/E key

  • Vibrates to confirm responses

  • Works seamlessly with other standard ResponseCards

The ResponseCard RF-Accessibility does not support self-paced testing. Students interested in ResponseCard RF-Accessibility should fill out and submit a Request for Accommodation to the Disability Resource Center.
