About Accessible Formats
Rating
0.0 stars

Understanding accessible formats requires some background knowledge of the barriers many learners with disabilities experience when reading or accessing information in print-based and certain digital-based materials.

"Text-based" refers to materials with static or fixed text and images, such as textbooks and supplemental text materials. Both print and digital materials can be text-based. For example, an electronic textbook that replicates a standard print textbook is considered a text-based material.

Books in standard print are common examples of text-based materials. To successfully use print, learners need functional skills related to sensory, physical, and cognitive abilities. Some learners may have visual disabilities that make it difficult to see the text and images on the page. Other learners may be unable to hold printed materials because of a physical disability. Still others may be unable to read or derive meaning from the printed text because of a learning disability.

Certain digital materials also have text and images. Specifically, text-based digital materials are not consistently designed for use with assistive technology (AT). Some learners use AT to read and navigate text and images in digital materials. Screen readers, text to speech, and switches are a few examples of AT devices and software that learners with a wide range of disabilities use. To prevent barriers for learners who use AT, see Vetting for Accessibility.

Because of the frequent barriers presented by text-based materials, some learners with disabilities need alternative forms, known as accessible formats. Examples of accessible formats include audio, braille, large print, tactile graphics, and digital text conforming with accessibility standards.

The term accessible format is defined in section 121 of the Copyright Act, known as the Chafee Amendment:

Acquire, Engage, Enjoy: Overview of Accessible Technologies and Formats with Jennifer South Webinar 11.14.23
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

This AEM session will review the meaning of accessibility, and look at why standard formats can create barriers for certain learners. In contrast, we will outline and explore the basic accessible formats. Ideally, educators would provide materials that their students can access, but when that doesn’t happen, learners need a solution. Additionally, some accessible formats may require the use of an assistive technology tool to allow the student to fully interact with the materials being presented. This session will focus on free or low-cost accessible technology tools available on a variety of devices and platforms. Having the right tool for the task can mean the difference in a student’s meaningful and successful participation in their education!

A Resource for Instructors of All Levels, Backgrounds, and Teaching Contexts

Short Description:
Addressing Evolving Needs with Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a resource that will guide instructors of all levels, backgrounds, and teaching contexts to reflect on the evolving needs of students, and to implement UDL principles to create more supportive, inclusive, and accessible learning environments for all. In addition to introducing key UDL concepts, this resource includes practical applications, tools, and discussion/reflection prompts for instructors of all levels. This resource can be used individually or in group contexts.

Long Description:
Addressing Evolving Needs with Universal Design for Learning is a resource that was created following the success of a cohort-based online practicum that was offered to faculty, instructors, and staff at Northwestern University. This resource is designed for instructors of all levels, backgrounds, and teaching contexts to reflect on the evolving needs of students and instructors, with an emphasis on mental health. Following the events of the past couple of years, explore how elements of course design can have varying impacts on students, and learn to implement Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles to create more supportive, inclusive, and accessible learning environments for all.

This resource draws on expertise and experience from around the Northwestern University to explore practical ways to implement UDL solutions in syllabi, LMS pages, course materials, assignments and assessments, and learning experiences.
