Yes Chaffee specifically excludes dramatic works. We always just processed
them as we do any other materials but have found that a lot of the older
ones are available in digital form. I would try project Gutenberg first.

Subject: [Athen] Chafee Amendment and dramatic works (plays)

Dear Colleagues,

I have a question about obtaining plays in alternative formats (specifically
PDF) for a visually impaired student enrolled in an Acting class. My
understanding is that plays are exempted under the Chafee Amendment from
being converted into alternative formats. So have any of you had to obtain
alternative formats of plays for your students, and how did you go about
doing this?

Thanks so much,

Kathleen Cahill
