Students with a print-related disability (A person who cannot effectively read print because of a visual, physical, perceptual, developmental, cognitive, or learning disability) approved for audio books accommodation can acquire literary textbooks and resource materials required for course instruction in an alternative format such as Electronic Text (E-text), Large Print, Portable Document Format (PDF), Literary Braille, and Tactile Graphics. Students with print-related disabilities may also receive a complimentary Read &Write Gold account and software installed on their laptop. Read &Write Gold is an assistive technology text-to-speech program that assists students with reading materials.
Students must make an appointment with the Assistive Technology Coordinator to review the alternative media procedures and guidelines with the student, as well assist with the Read &Write Gold installation.
