I would most likely create the spreadsheets into tables. This works very well for things such as journal entries, account ledgers, ffinancial statements, etc.

Subject: [Athen] Accounting Book Etext


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.
