Accessible course materials benefit many learners. Course materials that are accessible/compatible with screen readers, for example, can of course benefit students with visual impairments, students with dyslexia and other learning disabilities as well. In addition, student athletes traveling can also benefit from being able to have course materials read aloud while they are on a bus ride to or from a game. Generally, students that are auditory learners and English Language Learners can all benefit from this as well.
Your support in working to make course materials more accessible helps us to comply with the American with Disabilities Act.
