Course content is more complex and varied each year. Given the development of technology, essential pieces of the curriculum come in a variety of places and file formats: printed and digital textbooks, journal articles, websites, LMSs, third party websites, PDFs, ePubs, documents, and more. All file types and content must be accessible and interact with the text-to-speech tool. Due to the continued focus on doing more with less paired with an increase in the number of students accessing support through the Disability/Accessibility Resource Office, professionals struggle to keep up with the demands expected of them when it comes to accessible course materials. A more user-friendly and time-efficient process is needed for the sustainability of our institutions and our offices both today and in the future.
This session will focus on how Texthelp tools can augment and support the process of creating, providing and consuming accessible course materials through the lens of both professionals and students. Attendees will learn how students can independently gain access to course content formats and online environments by using Read&Write and OrbitNote. Through these tools and their direct interaction with course content, campuses will see a decrease in need for post-production remediation of content. For those creating STEM materials, Equatio provides a quick and easy process to make content accessible to all learners with disabilities.
