I would second Ron's suggestion; we have also on occasion had students ask us to re-create the spreadsheets in Excel and include those along with the textbook files.

Given that it is an accounting book the student may actually need access to the spreadsheet content so they may need to be converted to tables.

We are in the process of preparing the alt media for a blind student who is taking Accounting 1 in the fall. We are converting his text book to Word and structuring the document with headings, linearizing the side bars and image text to read correctly, etc. The most formidable challenge we currently face is dealing with the images of spreadsheets. We are wondering if some of you have prepared Accounting textbooks for students who are blind and could share your approach. We have ordered the Learning Ally version, but it won't be available until about a month after the semester begins at the earliest. In any case, etext is the student's preferred format.

Thanks very much.
