Sourcing Accessible Education Materials

Alternative formats are a fact of life. As an educational community, we know that every student has a unique learning experience. For accessibility, this can mean that the even the most accessible ebook or learning tool, checking all the WCAG boxes, won't work for every user. We know there are older titles in the world that aren't up top date to the latest standards. We know there are activities and assessments that might meet none of the existing standards. What can a teacher, parent, student, or disability services office do in order to find the files they need in the format they need them? In this session we'll give an overview of publisher request processes, existing repositories (such as AccessText Network, BookShare, and others), and how to get what you need when you need it.
