Accessibility: MyStudyBar: ssOverlay

MyStudyBar is a free tool bar with lots of apps which can help learners with their study. It is particularly helpful to learners with "print disabilities" but has lots of apps which could be of benefit to anyone!

It can be found on the learners START menu on all college windows based machines, and staff can access it on the Library sever L: drive.

You can also download it on to a memory stick to use anywhere at:

One of the apps "ssOverlay" allows you to place a coloured transparency across the computer screen. This short tutorial explains the main features of "ssOverlay"
