Hi, all.

Our area is soon meeting with a group of faculty from the modern languages and classics department regarding ways to make their course materials more accessibility from the outset. Do you have any foreign language specific suggestions?

Some topics we will address include discussing accessibility with publishers (and asking my team to evaluate the responses), making sure web content, PDFs, and office docs are accessible (via NCDAE cheatsheets and workshops and assistance we offer), and keeping communications lines with students open. We will also include info about working with our campus disability services team.

Any ideas you have would e much appreciated,

Dr. Rachel S. Thompson
