Students with a print impairment, or another condition that might affect their reading, often require their reading to be digitised so that their screen reading software can read the texts. If you have a student with a print impairment taking your module, you will need to ensure that we know which readings they need so that we can provide them with an accessible copy. In most cases this is 3 items per week although it will vary according to the individual student’s needs. Please check with the student if you are in any doubt.
You will need to identify the individual items in your reading lists using the tag ‘Accessible format request’ which will alert us to the items that need scanning. There are instructions on how to do this below. One of the main benefits of this change is that you will no longer need to provide the Library with a separate list. The tags will only be visible to list editors and Library staff and no students on your module will be able to view them.
If you've never had a reading list for the module then you can use our online submission form to send it to us and we will create the list for you. Any questions about this process should be sent to email@example.com.
This is exactly the same as adding an ‘Essential’ or ‘Digitisation’ tag and you can find the full instructions on the 'Add items' page.
For each item you want to recommend click on the edit symbol :
Then select the tag ‘Accessible format request’:
Then select ‘save’. Remember that only list editors and Library staff will be able to see the tags.
