The path-guided indoor navigation system provides more autonomy around the campus to people with special needs. Braille labels make life so much easier for the visually impaired. So do the assistive listening systems, for example induction loops, for the hearing-impared people. A database of digitalised texts and streaming of lectures by the technology Mediasite is available on a study portal. Clients can work with specialised software, notebooks and printers.
