Alternate Format Request

Some students with print-based disabilities may rquire textbooks, class readings and other print documents in an alternate format such as Braille, audiobooks, or digital versions that can be read by a variety of assistive technology.

Students registered with Accessibility Services (Blundon Centre) and have a print-based disability can request to have a formal accommodation to allow access to alternate format versions of a book required for their studies.

Depending on the publisher, it can take a number of weeks to provide a file, if available. Therefore, students are encouraged to submit a request as soon as the item information is known.

Please note: Publishers require students to provide a receipt to show that they have purchased the book before providing an alternate format file.
