Accessible Print

Accessible Print refers to printed materials that have been made accessible for persons with disabilities. Students with limited mobility, print-based learning disabilities, or who have complete or partial vision loss often require Accessible Print materials in order to have equal access to academic coursework. The AAAC provides this service to qualified students by converting textbooks and other course materials to an accessible format. The KU Libraries offer a number of Accessible Workstations to students who use Accessible Print materials and assistive technology. For more information, please visit KU Libraries' page on accessibility.

Students with limited mobility may require textbooks in digital format that are easier to transport and manipulate than regular books. Those with print-based learning disabilities may use assistive technology such as a computerized text reader to access printed materials. Blind or low-vision students have a wide range of needs which may include large print materials, braille or tactile formats, or screen-reading software.

Instructors who are interested in learning how to provide accessible print materials to students should visit the Faculty Center for more information or email accessprint@ku.edu.

For more information, please refer to our accessible print policies and procedures.
