#96 Accessibility

Linked in with Health & Safety and DDA is the issue of accessibility.

When you create materials for your pupils, do you supply alternative versions? This could be a large print edition, an audio file, a flash video, a braille version, or a high contrast copy.

This issue is becoming more and more prevalent in education, and is one that librarians should be aware of.

There are many excellent websites and blogs that deal with this issue, and offer some very detailed instruction and advice, including recommendations for free software. Some are listed below.

TechDis: Higher Education, but the issues are the same.

elearning Accessibility & Inclusion: Further Education, but again, highly relevant.
