We record books in mp3 files. Just as we used to record tapes.

Forwarded from Colorado-Wyoming Consortium of Disability Support Programs:

Greeting all,

I have a blind ESL student who is trying to pass his college math requirement and is attempting an accounting major. I have been fortunate to find his books in Learning Ally, so far, but know my luck can't hold. The student doesn't read Braille at the level needed for higher math. He is currently using JAWS and a Braille display note taker that converts rtf files.

My question is does anyone have a reasonable way to turn highly technical materials, such as math books, into screen reader friendly format (rtf, doc, pdf) on a production basis?
