  • Materials in Alternative Formats

    Many organizations provide standard information that the public relies on, from bank statements, to bus schedules to application forms. Rather than offering information in print only, providing alternative format materials allows all persons, inclusive of those with disabilities, to access the information they require, as needed. It is good business sense to offer alternative format materials, which could include audio, Braille, large print and accessible electronic texts.

    SNOW, a project of the Inclusive Design Research Centre, provides information and resources on alternative format materials including what they are, who might use them and how to produce them.
