Alternative Format Services

Students with visual impairments, learning disabilities or other conditions that affect access to print materials may be eligible for books in alternative format.

Alternative format includes textbooks and other printed class materials in digital format, in Braille, or in audio and electronic format. Students eligible for alternative format services must provide a copy of their class schedule to their coordinator as soon as they register each semester. 

When possible, UDSS obtains audio books from Learning Ally, or Bookshare. Books that are not available in alternative format from these sources are created in-house. For locally-produced media, UDSS staff strive to provide media to students in a timely fashion.  Course packets, handouts, etc. can also be produced.

To help us provide media as needed, UDSS coordinators will contact students regarding information as to which titles are available from what sources.  Students should respond and let the coordinator know which titles will be needed.

To obtain titles recorded or scanned from our local production area, students must provide a copy of their purchase or rental receipts.

Audio files are sent to students using Kurzweil Firefly. Students can then download the media to the device of their choice.

UDSS appreciates any feedback students have regarding their alternative format. If students are unsatisfied with the speed or quality of your media, let your coordinator know so changes can be made to improve the material. Notify UDSS of any problems with equipment or media as soon as possible.
