Commonly used alternate formats include but are not limited audio recordings, e-text, and Braille. Disability Services has the right to select the process for acquiring and delivering alternative format materials.

To facilitate timely delivery of your converted materials please make your requests as early as possible, but at least 3 weeks in advance of when you will need the materials.
