Alternative Format Text

Alternative format text (e.g., electronic or Braille versions of print material) is available to students who are blind, have low vision, or who have a learning or mobility disability. Alternative format texts are requested on-line at the link below. Please note that infomation such as: book title, author, and professor name, will be needed in order to complete your request.

It can take several weeks to obtain digital textbooks and several months to have a Braille textbook made. Therefore, students who need alternative format textbooks are required to provide a reading list to Accessible Education immediately after they have selected their courses. Students may obtain textbook information from the Bookstore on campus. The Bookstore usually has course reading lists at least a month before classes begin.

In some instances, Accessible Education may be able to create accessible versions of textbooks more quickly than obtaining them from another source. In these cases, Accessible Education would ask students to supply their textbooks when requesting alternative format texts so that Accessible Education can scan them.
