Where an e-book is not available or is not accessible in its current format, we will provide a digital file for your use. We are able to provide readable PDF and Word document formats.
TextHelp Read&Write and ZoomText software can be accessed on City computers, where you can listen back to text or create your own audio files.
Many of our books are available in digital format. Check our collections to make sure the materials are accessible to you.
If the text you need is only available in print format, or if the library e-book is not suitable, see step 2 alternative format files below.
If accessible materials are not commercially available, we will make an application to the publisher or via RNIB Bookshare for alternative format files. Where electronic files or alternative formats are not available we may be able to make an in-house accessible copy of essential reading items where this is reasonable. Please note that complex material and longer books can take longer to reformat.
Please note requests can take up to 10 weeks, please make your requests in good time before your module starts.
If you would prefer to discuss your needs before making a request, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 020 7040 3104.
Alternative formats are for personal study only, for the duration of your course and must not be shared. A full list of usage terms will be sent to you with each alternative format.
