Alternative Formats

SAS Offers assistance to qualified students in obtaining alternate formats for textbooks and other course reading materials.

The most common types of alternate reading formats are produced as Braille, enlarged print and electronic text (e-text). E-text and digital text often refers to any text that can be read electronically in a computer environment with software programs such as JAWS and Dolphin or, using listening equipment such as MP3 players or iPods.
