Alternate Texts Format Request Form
The alternate text format accommodation enables students with print related disabilities to access text in alternate formats (ex., braille, large font, electronic, audio).
To receive the alternate text format accommodation, a student must be registered with the Center for Accessibility Services (CAS) and have met with a CAS Disability Services Specialist to confirm that the student qualifies for this accommodation.
*Students should check book distributors for e-books with text to speech or audio books before requesting alternate formats from the CAS. (ex. Bookshare, Amazon, Audible, Learning Ally)
To receive alternate text formats:
- Complete and submit this alternate text request form.
- Provide proof of purchase/rental to the CAS
To assist the CAS in locating alternate formats in a timely manner
- Submit the alternate text requests forms four weeks before classes begin
- Do not wait until purchasing textbooks to submit your alternate text needs
