ABSTRACT
Students with visual and reading disabilities require more than print resources to gain independent access to learning. Usually, its alternatives are finding someone who will read for them, using books available in accessible formats such as audio or Braille, or using computer technology to convert print resources into accessible electronic formats. Unfortunately, these options are not always practical or convenient for students or teachers. First, students who come to rely on others to read for them become dependent, rather than independent, learners. Second, only about 5% of publications are available in these accessible formats. INSET: Ask Mr. Technology.
