Alternative Formats

If you have a print-related disability, there are a variety of options available to make your course materials accessible. You may utilize one of the text-to-speech software programs available to you through Dartmouth College, or apply to receive document conversion through Student Accessibility Services.

Our role at SAS is to help instructors ensure that students with disabilities that affect reading print can access readings at the same time as their classmates.
