Accessible Text

The Office of Disability Resources (ODR) provides accessible text to students with documented print-related disabilities.

ODR works directly with the publishing companies to provide students with an accessible format, as needed.  However, text is not always available through the publishers.  If this should happen, ODR, uses a high speed scanner to convert hard copy documents into digital formats (with student permission).  Formats include, but are not limited to:

  • Digitally formatted text books (Word document, text, PDF, Rich Text File, or Bookshare DAISY)
  • Digitally formatted course handouts
  • Large print handouts
  • Electronic reserve materials converted to accessible e-text

For students with this accommodation, accessible texts can be requested through the ODR.

**Students should contact the Bookstore Manager or their instructors as soon as they are registered for classes in order to determine the texts they will need.**
