Accessible Media Program


The Accessible Media Program (AMP) of the DPRC provides accessible electronic versions of instructional print materials to students, staff, and faculty with disabilities. This is also known as alternative media or alternative text. Individuals may request access to this service via the DPRC as a reasonable accommodation. 

Instructional materials include:

  • Textbooks
  • Course Readers
  • Journal Articles
  • iLearn Articles

Students will receive email notifications before the semester, reminding them to identify and request instructional materials to be converted for their courses.  

To acquire accessible materials, the Accessible Media Program collaborates with other universities and publishers. Items not available in the necessary format are converted in house or by a contracted outside agency. The produced electronic files are compatible with commonly used assistive hardware and software. Some of the more common formats that we provide are Microsoft DOC, Adobe PDF, Kurzweil KES, and MP3 audio.

Requesting Accessible Print - Students

Please submit requests as soon as possible. We will do our best to provide materials as soon as possible, but note that it may take up to 4 weeks to process your requests. We are also available to assist you in prioritizing your requests if needed.
