Meeting the increasing demand for e-text as an accessible text format
depends on sophisticated techniques for production and delivery based on
high speed duplex scanning. While many colleges are creating e-text for
students with print disabilities, many more are unaware of the process
and requirements of creating e-text.
Join us for this unique two-day institute on best practices in creating
electronic text and working with publishers of academic materials. The
presenters, who are proven experts in assistive technology, will address
the topic of e-text production and provision by teaching skills in the
use of e-text and best practices, exploring ways to work with publishers
regarding copyright and security issues, and providing "hands on"
training in the creation of e-text from print material using models
developed in a variety of programs around the country The two-day
training will address the needs of both administrators and practitioners
so the potential impact of the institute will be significant.

will explore ways to work with publisher provided materials, and in the
