Alt Format Tools for Creating Success
Give people the right tools and learning materials and they are more likely to succeed. This is especially true for people with low vision, blindness, dyslexia or who have additional literacy needs, where the printed word is not naturally accessible.
With the latest legislation on inclusion (Section 508 in the US and DDA in the UK), it has never been more important for schools, colleges, universities, employers, local authorities and charities to be able to quickly create their materials in Alt formats:
DAISY Digital Talking Books MP3 audio Large Print Braille
Catering for individuals with dyslexia, visual impairments and other reading difficulties includes offering publications such as learning resources, newspapers, letters, bills, manuals and leaflets in alternative, accessible formats to suit the needs of the recipient - students, friends, colleagues, staff and customers.
