We’re in the process of writing up standards for computer labs, and the question was raised “Is it accessible to designate which workstations are the accessible workstations, just like is done in parking lots?”


Some accessibility software is in the base image, so a student can go to any workstation in the lab and use items like ZoomText and Read&Write Gold.  However, some software/hardware is workstation specific.  Is it acceptable to have a sign (international symbol) to indicate the workstations with AT on them?  Would it be better to have some other indication (a universal indicator across all computer labs such as an orange dot on the monitor and a tactile marker on the corner of the desk), so that the people with disabilities would know which workstations have AT on them, but it wouldn’t necessarily be obvious to other students?


I’d appreciate your response.
