Accessibility Support: Readable PDFs

Yanko Michea

As you start the Autumn quarter, don’t forget that the CoE Technology Center can help you make your course materials more accessible for all students! Remediated PDFs are accessible to students who use assistive technologies like screen readers, and they’re also beneficial because any student can use Canvas to download an audio version! If you’re assigning scanned chapters, or PDFs of articles without an available full-text version online, we can make them screen-readable. If you are interested in this service, please email edhelp@uw.edu with your request! Due to the time-consuming nature of PDF remediation, the turnaround time is usually several weeks.
