In terms of special assistance for disabled employees and students, TKU’s objective is to continually improve.

This includes both hardware and software such as Zoom Text, the English and Chinese Audio Reading Device, Jaws for Windows, braille displayer, English/Chinese Impaired Vision device, and much more.”
