Accessible Textbooks and Course Materials

Course materials (textbooks, handouts, digital reading materials, etc.) can be converted to accessible formats for students with print disabilities.  It's up to you - the student - to request what course materials you need to converted each semester.

Important note:

The CEA Document Conversion Lab can convert inaccessible PDFs into an accessible format. However, CEA does not have access to Blackboard classes or course materials. We cannot download the items you request. You must provide the articles to the CEA Document Conversion Lab.

How to request document conversion:

  1. Request the textbook/document conversion accommodation for a class by selecting the accommodation when requesting an accommodation letter.
  2. Next, via your CEA Student Profile, request the specific books/documents to be converted.
