My information is pretty straight forward; make an appointment and bring documentation so we can provide you with equal access. However, the advisor had much more information. As in five pages of handouts with lots of words. The group of students were primarily SLD diagnosis so most of them don’t read well. This made me realize that all those papers are probably not going to help since they struggle to read and maybe we should add some type of think to our website so students who do have difficulty reading can link to a page that can be read aloud to them. I was wondering if anyone has done that? I know Natural Reader has a button you can add to your bookmark bar that will read webpages. However, we have documents that the student can open and save that they would need to open in NR’s free download.
