Alternate Format

(For printed materials)

In most cases, a request for alternate format of printed material, whether for brochures, pamphlets or event announcements, requires that a text-only electronic version of the publication or announcement be made available. Individuals can then access the information through screen reading software or by modifying the font size, color, etc. of the printed text. Should you have an unusual request for alternate format (e.g. Braille, CD, printed version with extra large font), call the Services for Students with Disabilities office, 278.2811, to discuss options.

It is recommended that a statement informing individuals with disabilities that the information is available in alternate formats be included on your campus publication, flyer or event announcement.

Sample Alternate Format Statement

  • This publication is available in alternate formats on request. Please call (insert telephone number of sponsor).
