AAUP 2016: Accessibility Presentation (J. Axelrod)

  1. 1. AAUP 2016 Jamie Axelrod Director Disability Resources ADA Coordinator/504 Compliance Officer Northern Arizona University President-Elect, Association on Higher Education and Disability
  2. 2. When we get a request • Check the ISBN to make sure it is the correct edition being requested. • See if the title is available for request from Access Text…if not, then • Contact Publisher Directly to see if they can supply a digital file…if not, then • Purchase at the Bookstore…if not, then • Purchase through Amazon or other online retailer
  3. 3. Access Text Network • Over 94,000 requests from the 1600 member institutions in 2015 • 30,000 unique titles • 50% of the titles had multiple requests • Sharing of remediated files is not permitted • If you need the same book again for another student you must make a new request and agree not to use the previously provided file.
  4. 4. When we need to purchase a physical copy
  5. 5. Making files usable • 82% of the files we received from Access Text and publishers in 2015-2016 needed further remediation to make them accessible for the end user we were providing them to.
  6. 6. Typical issues for remediation • File is one large PDF which needs to be broken up into chapters • PDF is not appropriately structured or tagged • Pagination- page numbers are missing or are different for the file as compared to the text • Footnotes, sidenotes are missing • Formatting- text wrapping or reading order • Visual elements-pictures, tables, graphs, charts • Symbols- Greek symbols, mathematical symbols • File is a jpeg and has no text based content
  7. 7. Item As seen within the text Corrected format Bullet Points  [bullet] Minus Signs - [minus] Negative Signs - [negative] Greater Than Symbol > [greater than] Greater Than or Equal To Symbol ≥ [greater than or equal to] Less Than Symbol < [less than] Less Than or Equal To Symbol ≤ [less than or equal to] Not Equal To Symbol ≠ [not equal to] Asterisk Symbol * [asterisk] Multiplication Symbol x or * [times] Copyright Symbol © [copyright] Dashes ‒ or — (these are medium or long dashes) - (replace them with the short dash)
