Alternative Textbook Materials
The formatting of alternative textbook materials is based on the availability from publishers. With the advancement of assistive technology, many publishers have discontinued the use of audiobooks and have transitioned to other formats that can be uploaded to e-readers and/or to personal computers with software that has text to speech capabilities. Free software can be downloaded from the Internet to make the technology accessible to students. Upon request, the Office of Accessibility Resources may be able to request alternative textbook materials from some publishers for books.
